I'm not a big mead fan, but they've got some tasty flavors, it was very busy so the girl doing the pouring seemed rushed, but I will definitely look for this in my local wine shop

Very personable, the owner spent time with us explained each and every mead and let us taste each one then refused a tip! We bought several bottles and will go back if ever in town again! Recommend the iced tea and spiced mead very good! Prices are very reasonable as well.

We walked to Maine Mead Works from downtown and sampled many tasty brews. I usually don't like mead, but these were some of the best I've ever had, work a trip.

I thought I had posted a review from my phone, but checking today I see that it never transpired. I first tried Maine Mead Works when I received it as a gift, and it became my favorite alcoholic beverage. I live in NY state, near dozens of Finger Lake wineries and craft breweries, so I have sampled my share. The... More

This meadery is a low-frills establishment, run by fewer than half a dozen employees, but the product is high-end enough to make you think it must be a whole lot bigger. Everything is made with love and dedication to the Craft of mead… a perfect example of small-town America and what good artists can produce. It was rainy today so... More

Never had tried Mead before but stopped in here when we were in Portland touring Breweries. To my surprise, I actually like Mead. The tastings are free and the staff will spend the time with you to explain the product, how it’s made and features about each type of mead. It was hard to whittle it down to just one... More

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
