We are a family and dog-friendly taproom that finds the midpoint between a wine bar, microbrewery, and European pub. We currently feature weekly trivia, live music, food trucks or food delivery, and yoga plus other events like bee seminars and makers & mead. We have 12 session meads on tap with select meads available to go home in twenty-five ounce crowlers.

Drinking our honey wine surprises many people when it’s not overtly sweet like traditional mead. It’s naturally gluten free and through our careful processing, the medicinal properties of raw honey are maintained. Many people report that they are able to enjoy this beverage with no negative impact the following day. 

Historically, it’s the oldest alcoholic beverage, enjoyed by pharaohs and kings.



Scientifically, mead is wine made by fermenting honey, changing the sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. 

Practically, mead is a delicious gluten-free beverage that makes you feel good, even the next day!

We are a husband & wife duo who are passionate about creating a space where face-to-face conversations take precedence over technology. 

Tim, the Brewer, is a reformed technology junkie /engineer /consultant who has found his niche making people smile with a delicious product that is good for you.

Ayla, the Creative Director, is a large animal veterinarian who has found a calling keeping bees and flexing her creative muscles to create an environment that is welcoming to all ages and backgrounds.




On location we have a rotating taplist of up to 12 session meads including a coffee mead, several hopped meads, and meads made with local, seasonal produce. Stop in to see what's on tap!
