Our vision is to bee an environmentally sustainable, locally-focused beverage experience that strengthens communities and brings joy. 

The Hive Taproom was started out of a desire to fulfill a need that was missing, the need for an energizing, high quality gluten-free beverage and an inclusive, welcoming space for multiple generations to share a beverage.


The founders Tim & Ayla left their engineering and veterinary careers respectively to create their happy place, a place where face-to-face conversation presides and building community is prioritized, a place where family & friends gather and memories are made.


Eighteen months after enjoying session mead for the first time on a family trip to California and many months of tinkering in the basement and developing recipes, Tim and Ayla opened the Hive Taproom in July of 2018.
