Bright, open tasting room. Small, but could probably fit a decent crowd. A meadery dog was present, and while it was a standoffish dog, it still adds to the ambience. Bartender was friendly and informative. Flight of 7 meads for $7, 1 ounce pours each. Bottles available in line with mead prices. Meads themselves tended to be on the sweet side but were solid overall. Worthwhile stop.

Iíve toured this place a couple times, itís a fun afternoon activity. You get to try all the meads and go on a short tour. They have a really unusual process for making the mead which doesnít really come across in the tour. The mead comes out very dry but flavorful due to this process, a lot of people like it who hate mead normally. Oxbow is right behind off to the right of the building, making a nice double header. Do it.

Popped in here for the 3:00 tour on 7/2/13. First tour of a meadery. Tour guide was knowledgeable and we got to sample a splash of every mead available at that time. I wasnít in love with their catalog because Iím not a huge fan of dry meads, but I picked up bottles of the slightly sweeter Spiced and Iced Tea meads. Worth a stop.

The front of the building looked as if it were a car garage and if it hadnít been for the sign, I wouldíve walked right past. Inside there was a bar that only served samples of their creative meads by a fellow that resembled Jared from the Subway commercials. The interior had the appearance straightaway of a sewing supply store: the walls were white, the counter was white, and there was no clutter, plus, its only customers on that day were five mid-40s women that wore what appeared to be wool sweaters. The guy who served the meads was nice enough, and had told us the same story he told Phaleslu about his grandmotherís sweet tea being used in a mead.

Maine Mead Works just moved to a snazzy new location on Washington Ave, just north of Eastern Cemetery on Congress. The tasting room greets you as you walk in the nice, large, clean building. The meadery itself is in the rooms to the back and side and tours are available. We went through the entire slate of available meads. One of the mead makers came in to talk to us for a while and offered us some of a mead theyíre just about to release for Novare Res, a really unique mead based on his grandmotherís sweet tea recipe. The meads here are not thick and syrupy like the Polish meads, but thinner and more subtle in order to showcase some of the other ingredients, whether blueberries, hops, strawberries, or whatever other variety. The bottles go for $14-$20 or so, based on which style you want. They ship to a handful of states, with more on the way. The operation seems to be rapidly growing and by the end of the year will have increased output by almost four times compared to last year. Very, very nice place overall and absolutely worth a stop if youíre in Portland for a while.
