We just learned about Maine Mead Works through a visit at a tap house in Portland and decided to stop for a tasting. When we came in there was no one in the tasting area. A very nice young woman came in from the office area and explained it would be a few minutes before someone could help us. We... More

We had a great time doing a tasting at Maine Mead Works! We were not there for a tour and did just a tasting of their 4 meads and 2 Ram Island offerings. It's a small place with a nice tasting bar and the woman serving us was very friendly and knowledgeable. I ended buying a bottle of mead and... More

We visited Maine Mead Works while in Portland on a cruise (we walked there and it wasn't too far, but wear comfy shoes!). We went right when it opened and were the only ones there. The woman doing the tasting was friendly and it was very relaxed. The tasting fee got us samples of 5 or 6 different drinks and... More

Even if you think you don't like mead, go here. The meads are delicious, diverse, and much dryer than you'd expect.

We stopped on a whim here in between breweries...It was a cool experience as we had never had Mead before. The gal was super nice and explained everything about each of the samples. The Mead was very sweet, but I am glad we tried. If you are in Portland, check it out

I am a heavy wine drinker and love wine tasting. Naturally when we decided to go mead tasting I was a bit dubious. So, mead is NOTHING like wine, but the experience at the meadery was on par with the best wine tastings I have had. They have a very large variety and the lady doing the tasting was very... More

We had a fantastic tasting and tour here. The mead is really interesting. Some is delicious, some not my taste. The lady doing our tasting was super friendly and knowledgeable, and really made it an enjoyable experience. Highly recommend this as a must-do in Portland! Tasting is $5 per person but very worth it as there are many flavors to... More

I'm not a huge fan a mead as it tends to give me a quick headache, that said, these Honey Makers are gifted and are putting some great effort into they're products. We tasted everything - loved the Ram Island tea tea. Also liked the cool logos gifts and t-shirts to take home.

Tasting room is nicely done. Owner was working the counter when we were there and was quite nice. He seemed very excited about what he does and that makes the experience better. The different varieties were quite nice and we were pleasantly surprised that many were not overly sweet. We were most surprised by how much we liked the lavender.... More

I love mead, and this place just made me love it more. The bartender knew all about the meads was just all around wonderful. She had a great sense of humor, she was friendly and fun to hang out with while we tried some awesome mead. I've never had carbonated mead before, but I will have it again. And of... More
