Have visited twice, and it was great both times! The mead is delicious, and the woman who owns the place (along with her husband) is super friendly and engaging. The tasting is affordable and fun, and the bottles make great gifts. My favorite so far has been the Apple Cyser, but I have yet to try the Strawberry!

Read about Maine Mead Works and was intrigued, had to give them a try. Dropped in today and we each tried a flight. Very innovative flavors and locally made. Fell for the blueberry mead, and the iced tea mead will become a summer staple in our home. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, we took home 9 bottles with the... More

We didn't go on a tour but they are available at 11:30 AM and 3:00 PM on Monday thru Saturday. We had the mead flight for $7 each and sampled 7 meads. I loved all of them, particularly the Lavender mead.

Didn't know anything about mead and have never tried it. This wonderful gem of a tasting room and mead making facility. We sampled many different types, flavors and learned about the process of continuous fermentation. Loved the samples and ended up bringing 5 bottles of deliciousness home with me!

First time tasting Mead and we learned a lot. We stumbled at this place on the way to another brewery and we are glad we did. The bartender was very knowledgeable and helpful. Tasting was a good price.

I'm not a big mead drinker, but this was a very informative and interesting tour of a mead works. Their process is fascinating, and their product is topnotch. We went as part of the Maine Brew Bus tour, which in itself is a GREAT deal.

My husband and I were touring around Portland, and after a quick google map exploration, we decided the Mead Works sounded fun. And we were right! The staff here is a lot of fun, and I highly recommend the tasting! The mead is delicious and it's something a bit different from all of the breweries around the area. Check it... More

While looking up breweries in Portland we saw they had a meadery. We have tried mead before and always like to see what else is out there. We stopped in and was greeted by the owner, Ben, on his way out and we were really pleased with their product. It is a little sweet but the Chai, Lavender and Tea... More

went in to try the mead wine. Was interesting but just not my cup of tea. I really didn't care for the mead wines but the place is good
