Latest Buzz in the World of Mead, Vol. 1, Issue 3

Pips Meadery gets go-ahead to open tap room in Gurnee 

Gurnee leaders approved a plan allowing Pips Meadery to operate in the space currently used by Only Child Brewery at 1350 Tri State Parkway, Suite 124, on the west side of Interstate 94.

Pips currently produces mead, the alcoholic beverage made from fermented honey, at a facility in Beach Park. Unless you are a club member, won a lottery or managed to snag a bottle online chances are you haven't seen their product at a liquor store or tasted it.

Columbus-area meadery open[ed] new tasting room this weekend 

Zen Bee Meadery launched a brand new tasting room and production facility in Worthington, OH.

The meadery’s new storefront, which is located at 480 E. Wilson Bridge St., will held a soft opening on June 10 and 11. Approximately 700 square feet of the new 2,000 square foot space will be used by the meadery’s production facility, with the rest being dedicated to its new tasting room.

While Zen Bee noted they’re still working to build out the rest of their new tasting room, the public is invited to sample house-made mead on tap and in bottles. There will be limited flavors on draft, but bottles will be on sale.
