Overview

Our Meads are Different. Lighter bodied, honey forward but balanced, we make most of our meads with ale yeast, a 1-to-4 California Honey to San Diego Spring Water Ratio, and an element like oak or lactobacillus to balance the finish. We want our meads to drink like a refreshing ale or invigorating sparkling wine, we want them to spread mirth, and arouse people to the beauty of life. WHAT IS MEAD? Mead is alcohol made from honey. Mix honey and water, add yeast and you eventually get mead. It is a whole spectrum of alcohol, so it can be light abv, dry, and refreshing, or thick, sweet and strong, bubbly or still and any where in between with any number of additional ingredients. It is very creative, it is very versatile, it is timeless and we think it can be good for the earth (you don't need a mono-culture of barley or grapes to make it, just bees on a healthy ecosystem).

I came here about a year ago when the tasting room was scarcely a 10’x20’ corner of a warehouse behind a roller door. The transformation since then is amazing. A nicely set out place to Meade your friends. Plenty of tables for groups to have...More

Last night I dropped by Golden Coast for a glass of mead and found that they were having a fun event that allowed you to experience cigar, mead, and fine chocolate pairings. Not being a cigar smoker myself, I chose to participate in the remaining...More

I purchased a groupon and base on the information/pictures I thought this was a beer brewery. I love trying different things so I was pleasantly surprised! Didn't understand the decor until our server explain what Mead is. Cool to try once but not something I...More

Located in an industrial park, it's a bit tricky to find, but well worth it. It's a small place, so you can be in and out in less than 15 minutes if you're new to meads and just want to try a few, or spend...More

This meadery is tucked into the back of an industrial park - they've got signs to make sure you find it. The owners and staff are friendly and really into their product. I've made mead for years, and they are producing a different type of...More

Golden Coast Meadery tasting room is a tiny place in the back of an industrial park. It is open Fri-Sun afternoons. The tasting counter is wedged between the brewing equipment and pallets of ingredients. Alex gave me a wonderful introduction to meads. As a complete...More
