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.
