We were fortunate to meet the owners in July 2016 when we stopped by. Started talking about mead, and they told us how they started, and gave a tour of the facility. Really good mead, smooth drinking and no sedimentation. Wonderful folks who really know their business. Subtle flavors, and great taste. We bought two cases to bring back to... More

Really knowledgeable bar tender about local beverage products, bees and honey. The sampling is terrific value for $7 and we tasted many meads, mainly dry not sweet at all. Nice space, nice experience. Did you know city bees make more honey than country bees?

Took a group of friends from out of town here during a self-guided spirits tour of Portland. A tasting was around $7 per person (if I remember correctly) but was well worth it. Their product is top notch and well worth a visit.

Stopped by here doing a little walking tour of the area. We did the tasting of seven different meads, all were good, we were not real familiar with mead so this was a nice introduction. The building will be fun to watch as a brewery and distillery are planned to go in. They have a really nice chocolate lab that... More

We stopped by an hour before they were closing for the tastings, $7 for 7 different meade flavors. They all started to taste alike- there was not cracker, water or palate cleanser. Our hostess was clearly in a rush and even turned customers away that came 20 minutes before closing. She explained that she had been there before dawn and... More

My daughter and I decided to stop by and tried the Mead Flight for $7. Their product is very cool and tasty plus it is wonderful to try something that can taste so different. It gave a refreshing spin on things. They are smart and very informative and easy to talk and visit with. We had a wonderful time! Besides... More

Stopped by on a recent visit to Portland. We tried the mead flight for $7 and sampled seven different meads. The meads were delicious and each had a unique flavor. The staff person was friendly and very knowledgeable.

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.
