Very small tasting room off industrial end of pearl st. Four high tables, not much room to relax or spread out. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed tasting the reserve line but prices were very steep. Will have to take the tour some time.
My first meadery visit. Kind of exciting. Small tasting room with an even smaller tasting bar. I get it...the tasting is free. They have plenty of bottles for sale, including some of their special reserve releases. The woman who served us was incredibly friendly and told us a lot about all the different meads we were trying. The meads are pretty decent for the most part, and it’s nice to be able to try them all. Worth a stop if you’re just curious, if nothing else.
Another warehouse brewery but this one offers free samples and has been around for 12 years. They do tours regularly and there is a bar on the right side of the room where you can try pretty much everything they have currently. The only samples that cost money are the reserve series, of which they had a 2006 regular mead and two years of the fruited ones. You can buy bottles (and apparently fill them back up if you have empties), chocolate, and non-consumable things like shirts and posters. They also had two special beers that they’re doing for GABF in collaboration with Dry Dock. Not surprisingly they’re both braggots. The girl working the bar was very nice and wanted opinions about the beers. I’m not all that into mead ticking but I wouldn’t hesitate to bring new people here.
Visited on October 8, 2012 with two friends. We enjoyed 11 complimentary pours and got two pours of the more fancy reserve meads. Great service, knowledgeable man serving and helping us. Good selection to sample on site as well as to buy for home. My first ever visit to a meadery and it did not dissapoint me at all, I’m very happy we went and it is for sure worth the trip out of your way to get there.
Small little bar/shop and tiny sitting area. Free samples of anything you want to try- many options. Even the driest mead seemed sweet to me. Full glasses and bottles seemed a bit pricey. There was a bluegreass duo playing when we were there... mead I can take or leave, but bluegrass gawd no! Unless you are on a tour, or are going to sit and drink, it is just kind of taste and leave. Oh, check the map before visiting, Pearl Street isn not continuous
Quaint little place, got to see the tour and get some free samples of some awesome mead. Not a bad selection of on-tap and bottles to buy. But after the tour, I felt like they wanted us all to buy something and leave. That said, the head brewer and his taproom help sure were quite knowledgeable and helpful.
Hmm, not sure what I expected but I was surprised to see it’s just a small sampling area with bottles available to go. Selection was interesting, some sort of experimental meads available, some good stuff, dude was nice enough but I came here for a visit and to learn about their mead and I felt I was treated like they wanted me to just buy something and leave. :/
