We stopped in for an impromptu visit to try out mead. It was surprisingly diverse - from dry to sweet - and it rivaled any wine tasting we have done. I could easily pair the mead with an number of foods from sushi to dessert....More

Best thing to do is do a flight to try some (or all) of the available meads. Keep in mind that these are not beers and have a stronger alcohol content. The flavors range from tart to sweet. The coffee infused was probably our least...More

I love place. My husband plays here frequently for jazz nights. Good safe place with great music. I’m not a huge meads fan but there’s other things you can get drink wise.

Used a Groupon to get a tour for this local meadery. It's not a walking tour, more of a pivoting tour. Sarah gave us a good overview of the brewing process for mead. It started with a tasting of their signature mead, Wild Ohio. Then...More

I've been passing friends with one of the Brothers for 20+ years now. He's been dedicating his tastebuds and vintner/mazer skills to the art for as long as I've known him. From the earliest days of small batch wedding gifts among friends to the finest...More

My wife and I visited along with our oldest daughter, at her suggestion, and it was a good one. We each chose the standard flight but the peach had to be swapped with a dry apple as they were out. I enjoyed the one with...More
