“Glad we mead this stop.”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Stopped here in conjunction with the beer tour and it was one of my favorite stops. The staff was friendly and the tour was brief but eye opening. Really all you need to know is you probably will not be leaving with just one bottle, it was that tasty!

“Tour and tasting a must!”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We checked this place out on our first trip to Portland. Glad we did the tour first then the tasting, which were both free! Learned a lot about mead and their unique process. Loved all the products, owner very sweet and knowledgeable - bought three varieties to bring home as they don't ship to NJ! Fun!

“Poor Service”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We stopped in to do a tasting, have a tour and learn more about mead. Unfortunately there was not a tour(we stopped on a Friday mornining) and the server was more interested in entertaining her toddler than doing our tasting, so needless to say we dod not learn much about mead. This was a big disapointment and a far cry from what was offered on the brochures.

“Great informative tour and tasting”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 via mobile

We spent a rainy hour here and had a great time. I had never had mead before but enjoy beer and wine. If you are the same you will probably like mead. The tour guide was awesome. It is a fairly small operation and almost everything is in one big room. She answered all of our questions and they do a great tasting. We probably tasted 10 different kinds. I highly recommend. This is just down the street from shipyard brewing so you can go from one to the other.

“Do a Tasting!!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We stopped here for a tasting and tour. It was a lot of fun and I learned a ton of stuff about mead. The lady that assisted us with the tasting was very nice and knowledgeable. The owner did the tour and was so receptive to our questions. We ended up buying a case of mead to bring home and can't wait to try it all out!!! If you have the opportunity while in Portland, spend an hour here!!
