A unique stop for anyone looking to experience the ancient brew mead. A great tasting room and a chance to learn about the brewing of mead from a local expert.
Unlike anything you have probably had, this honey based drink is not a wine nor a beer but something different. Sample the many varieties and I'm sure you will find something to your liking.

The Brimming Horn Meadery was a *wonderful* experience! Every mead I sampled was unique and delicious. The Norse decor was warm, lively, and fun. I felt like I was in an old-fashioned mead hall! :) The staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. My only complaint was that I couldn't buy everything I tasted!

I will be back, and I'll be bringing more friends to share in the fun!

This meadery serves a unique selection of meads (alcoholic beverage made from honey). They had a total of 11 available for tasting and by the glass when I was there, with about 6-7 available for purchase in bottles. In addition to traditional meads like Golden Tears (dry) and Freya's Kiss (semi-sweet) they also had a variety of more unusual flavors. The one that surprised me the most was Wolf Peach, made with green tomatoes. The place is decorated beautifully with Norse themes and the owner and staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They're located very close to Lewes, DE and about an hour away from Ocean City, MD.

We have visited a couple times. My hubby really likes the mead served here and we have bought a few bottles to bring home. Staff is friendly. They don’t really talk to you about the flavors or what goes into each one or the process like you get at wine tastings. They are fairly new so I’m not sure that they anticipated how popular they would be. Both times we have been here they were out of flavors or out of growlers. It would be nice to be able to bring all of the ones we tasted there and liked home but they don’t bottle them all. Hopefully the next visit they will be restocked on growlers. Check it out the next time you visit Rehoboth or Lewes. It’s not that far.
