Mead is a honey wine but it is so much more. Its origins go back thousand and thousands of years. The ancient Greeks called mead, Ambrosia, or Nectar. It was believed to be the drink of the gods. In Norse mythology a draught of mead, delivered by the beautiful divine maidens, was the reward for warriors that reached Valhalla.
3 meads are currently available at Prairie Rose Meadery’s tasting room, a traditional mead with just honey, a ginger mead and a blackberry mead. Additional meads are fermenting and will be available soon.
You have several options at the tasting room. A sampler will give you smaller pours so you can taste 3 meads. Larger pours of a glass of mead are availabe plus you can buy bottles of the mead to take home. Soda and cheese & meat platters are also available for you to snack on while you are there.
The tasting room is carpeted and very comfortable with a long bar plus several tables and a couple sofas to relax while you taste the mead. The tables are custom made with a prairie rose routed and stainted in middle.
There are large windows in the doors going to the brewing area where you can see all the stainless steel tanks with quick tours avaiable if you ask.
