The 1634 Meadery will be hosting the artwork of David "Stoney" Stone the weekend of August 21-23.  His photos and artwork will be hanging around the tasting room and production area for viewers to see, all while sipping mead!

Stoney's art consists of many sea and coastal themes, including marsh and beach views, docks and boats.  His creative genius shows in his retouched photos, as several look like paintings.  He has both large and small prints available for sale and viewing.   You can tour the production area, see his works, and then get educated on how mead is made!

The meadery plans to host several of these types of events each year, with this being the first.  We like to support our local artists by giving them space to display their wares.  And of course, this helps us as well!  Mead is available to purchase and taste by the glass or flight.

If you are a local northshore artist, and would like to potentially use our space for a display opportunity, come on down to the meadery and let us know!

So, we built it and you came... in DROVES!

Such a wonderful turn out of the mead curious and the mead starved!  We had several crew on hand to help us welcome you. 

After our ribbon cutting ceremony by the

Chamber of Commerce

, Orville delighted the

sipping crowd and folks wandered throughout our production area asking great questions.  And they chatted with our apiarists and bee educator about bees, hives, and bee conservation.  Over the 3 days, 356 of you tasted a flight, and MANY of you went home with a bottle - OR TWO!  We could not have asked for a better jump start!

 

We feel so fortunate to have been welcomed so warmly on 3 Short Street.  We have loved this town for so many reasons - but you all gave us an additional one this weekend!  And we thank you!

If you missed out on the fun, fear not!  We will be open for tastings Thursdays and Fridays 2 - 7 pm, Saturdays 1 - 7 pm, and Sundays 12 - 5 pm.   Or call other times for appointment.

Here are some more pictures from the weekend fun...
