Reservations cannot be made during our Tasting Room hours. We will take private groups for tours and tastings by appointment only. One week’s noticed is required to arrange staff. To arrange a private tour, or event, please contact us.
Can I get a tour of the meadery?
Sure! We offer public tours at 6pm on Fridays and 3pm on Saturdays. If you’d like a private or more in-depth tour – please contact us for an appointment. Our Tasting Room is located in our warehouse, so those less interested in the details can still see where all of our product is made just by visiting.
