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!

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!

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... More

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... More

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... More

Fun and unique tasting! We stopped on our way between mid-coast and Boston. Unfortunately missed the tour by a few minutes. Wonderful variety of products. We especially liked the hopped, reserve, and lavender.

We chose Portland as a dog friendly, get away long weekend. We had never tasted Mead and went here based on a taste we had at Portland Lobster, and recommendation from hotel staff. The hostess was friendly and engaging. she told us a little about the Portland Mead, ingredients and was generous with tastes. Some of the product was interesting,... More

I was surprised by the variety of mead produced by the Maine Mead Works. We arrived near closing and they graciously served us samples and told us about the meads. Unfortunately, we weren't in time to get a tour. Go there early enough to catch that!

I went in wanting to try their keg cider. I came out loving the cider and having had an amazing experience. The hostess was delightful and taught us so much about the process of creating mead. There was a steady stream of tourists coming and going, even on a dreary February afternoon. If you're a Portland local and haven't learned... More
