Ambiance is like a hipsters basement. Looks more like a warehouse, crappy tables (& very few) with unfinished walls. Hard to identify this place as a meadery. HOWEVER, the bartender(s) are always nice as hell & they love to give you samples & just BS with you about the mead itself or otherwise. I enjoy most B. Nektar meads, they always have good stuff on tap, & bottle sales are usually nice as well. No food. Aside from the run-down look of the place, everything else is awesome.

An interesting Michigan spot. Located in an industrial park with a small parking lot. You will probably be surprised as you walk in to the extremely runned down look. A few random non matching tables and chairs haphazardly set around. A wide array of different items from bar stools to folding lawn chairs to leather study tables. Looks like they shopped for furniture on trash day. Yet itís funny and puts off a very laid back relaxed vibe. They make it work. Very small place. Adding to the look brick walls with crayon and marker covered walls with drawings and shout outs. A nice selection of taps and bottle pours. Always a great selection of bottles to go along with glasses and other things. A very friendly and laid back staff. Very cool people to converse about mead and whatever really. Always quick to give a free tasting of what youíre wondering about. A lot of cool events like special bottle releases. They often bring a projection screen down for movies. Devils Night they had a Devils Juice bottle release (good stuff) along with a horror movie marathon. Overall a cool place with good mead.

Stopped in later in the evening on a Friday just after they opened. There is a small dedicated parking lot. There is a small tasting room set up when you first walk in the door. They had about 8 taps available, but only about 5 were active for my visit. They were also pouring anything that was available in bottles. The service was excellent, the brewers were the ones actually pouring the beer and meads and it was fun to talk shop with them. Behind the bar you could see hundreds, maybe thousands of barrels of mead fermenting. It was quite the unique setup. My only complaint is that it was kind of cold in there. Pricing was fair. I would definitely come back given the opportunity.

Stop #2 of our tour. Interesting little place in an industrial park. Little bar setup with a small tap selection, including a collaboration and a few of their beers. Staff was cool and liked to talk beer and mead. Definitely worth a stop for a flight.

72 AMBIANCE 3/5 SERVICE 9/10 SELECTION 11/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 6/10 OVERALL 13/20
Ambiance: A dirty industrial park look/feel to the place...been to similar but B Nektar doesnt cover the dirt with paint
Service: Both bartemders were very friendly, knowledgeable about the beers/meads and took the time to talk with you.
Selection: Had 9 meads, 5 beers, a slushie and 3 still meads, nice selection plus their bottles
Value: Minimum price of meads/beers was $6...decent for the quality but who wants a bunch of 10oz meads, even for B Nektar.
Overall, a decent place for meads but had very few that was not available i. Bottles, beers only had one, and it was average.

Industrial in the questionable part of town, odd music and videos with a worn down industrial look. Service was at a tiny bar but by people who knew what they were service. Tasting flight was in plastic cups. Lots of taps of mead and some of their new beers. Prices are good with a discount if you purchase qty. Good beer, odd space.

So this place is in an industrial neighborhood. The bar is in the middle of their warehouse with random seating. Good service with samples. Decent prices and selection of meads. They are started to get into beer which will be interesting.

This place was not hard to find following directions. Plus they had a sign out pointing the way =) The place is a warehouse so the ambiance wouldn't even register except for the most amazing comfy, rocking, spinning, barrel chairs ever! The prices aren't fantastic either. I'm just putting that right out there because if you want a bottle that's on the market, go out to a store and get it.
The reason to go here is to sample the meads, maybe find a special release, talk to the very friendly staff, ask questions, and basically get to know B. Nektar. They do have the best mead I've had (out of many).

In the back of an warehouse with a driveway and parking lot that needed to be redone 10 years ago. You are able to sample all of their year round meads and they had one small batch to try for free. The yalso had the two ultra small batches to sample for a price. The person that poured the mead was friendly and knew a bunch about mead. It was nice to try the meads and I picked up a bottle of Ch! Ch! Ch! and might have bought more if the prices were in line with what I saw down the road at the liquor store.
