What is mead?

Mead is an alcoholic beverage using honey as its sugar source, like grain is for beer or grapes are for wine.  Our mead is then flavored with a wide variety of fruits, spices, vegetables, nuts or even flowers (such as hops).  There are many different styles to choose from for every palette. It’s clean tasting and fresh, not too heavy or sweet, with ABV ranges of around 12% for most of our meads, although some do go higher.

There are more options out there than just beer, wine, and liquor. Mead is the answer to the question: What do I want to experience today? It's perfect for brunch, after work, winter nights and summer days. The variations in flavors, types, styles are nearly endless. Mead is simple in its design, difficult in its execution, and awesome in its realization.
