National Mead Day!

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

Ipswich

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...
