Mead Bottles by the river

Welcome, Run Amok Meadery | West Gardiner, Maine
Located in West Gardiner, Run Amok makes mead on the new moons and the full moons, fermenting the most delicious and delightful ingredients into amazing taste sensations, aligned with ancient tradition. Erroneously described as honey wine, mead is a fermented beverage made from honey, yeast, and water. It isn’t really wine, but it’s just as tasty on those cold winter evenings. Mead is thought to be 8,000 years old, give or take, and shows up in ancient cultures around the world – Greece, Rome, Ethiopia, China, and, of course, the Vikings. So as you’re settling down for some mid-winter hygge, grab your copy of Beowulf and a mug of mead and travel back in time! Save the date for a tasting with Run Amok Meadery on Friday, December 15 from 3-5pm.
