My first experience drinking meade was amazing. We had a flight of 7 different flavors for only $7! The lavender and chai were so good that I purchased a bottle of each. Please visit and support the local businesses!

Touring Portland and tired of walking aimlessly around Portland looking at all the tourist crap? Head over and visit these guys! Sit back and taste the drink of the gods! They have a solid variety and the staff was a good bunch of dudes.

So friendly and welcoming. Tried all the very lovely meads and sparkles available. Have always loved the lavender lemon mead. Worth the stop. And right next to a BUNCH of distilleries and breweries!
