bananas foster forever


It is said that once, long before the Birds and the Bees, there was the Banana and the Bee. The rowdy Banana came from the wrong side of the tracks, so it was instantly a scandalous relationship. Things were hot for a while, practically a flambé. Their love didn’t last long, though, as it was steeped in good times and a heavy dose of a certain Caribbean libation. After the flames settled settled they decided it would be best to stay BFF’s.



Pollen-Nation is a dry hopped (cascades) spiced blackberry hydromel.  Pistils of Pollen-Nation are crafted in honor of the industrious honey bees.  Responsible for over one-third of the world's food supply they have worked thanklessly through the ages.  Threatened today by Colony Collapse Disorder and other man-made threats, the weight of the world is getting a little heavier for the honey bee.  Join the Pollen-Nation and click here for details on how you can help!

2014 Mazer Cup - Gold Medal Winner

2015 Mazer Cup - Bronze Medal Winner



We've taken our gold medal winning Pollen-Nation and infused it with something special.  This dry-hopped blackberry mead with saigon cinnamon is perfectly balanced with subtle heat from chipotle peppers.  Once only available at festivals and in our taproom, Chipotle Pollen-Nation is now coming to the masses.

Jinja Dragon


Spring has awoken the might of the JINJA DRAGON.  We've harnessed the power of "the glow" through generous additions of hibiscus and ginger with a touch of black peppercorn.  Sure enough, the legend of the shogun of mead is true.  Although only available for a short time throughout the year, we assure you this is not the last Jinja Dragon.

Codex combustum

Limited Release  - draft/bottles

The smell of charred honey and cocoa wafted through the laboratory. We had finally deciphered the riddle of the CODEX COMBUSTUM. Would this bochet-style mead lead to world peace or global destruction? We were the only ones that knew of the relic we held in our hands, and if word leaked out it would mean imminent danger. Spies are among us though, and we know we can’t contain the secret for long. Soon the world would know…

the dispear

Limited Release  - draft/bottles

The full realization had finally set in. Every possible choice that could be made would ultimately lead them to their final chagrin. As they walked across the fjord there was not a word. The pear became one with the cardamom as a silent scream could be heard. Today marked the dawn of a new age.

gose Project: watermelon

Limited Release - draft/bottles

This gose-inspired mead is a tribute to a historic brew that has once again found renewed popularity. With their rise from obscurity, an experiment with the gose style and mead only seemed fitting. Watermelon and light honey sweetness give way to tartness, coriander, and a salty finish that targets every taste bud. A slice of watermelon just isn’t complete without a few good shakes of salt. Cheers!

magnum peach inferno

Limited Release  - draft/bottles

Ahh, the sweet life of a private dick. I was living like a king in Hawaii with hot cars and women, but the beat is always risky for a peach like me. Life was good until one day I landed in the hot seat with a tough gang of chipotle thugs. Thanks to three good friends and a couple reluctant Dobermans, I made it through. I vowed to put down the Old Dusseldorf, and I’ve been a Crafted man ever since. Life’s a peach, after all. A smoky chipotle peach, to be specific.


Limited Release  - draft/bottles

CCP, how can we explain it? C is for Coconut, C is for Crème, the last letter P, well, you’re going to want to enjoy every last little bit. Because it’s Pie…as in Coconut Crème Pie. Like, the delicious kind that gets brought to the family reunion or a picnic or something. But…it’s a mead. A mead so good it’s naughty. And, it’s made by nature (the bees ya’ll). Now bust it! You down with CCP? Yeah! You know? Mead!

criminal klp

Collaboration/Limited Release

Cigar City Cider & Mead is WANTED by Crafted Artisan Meadery for a crime of passion.  On a cool September night they slipped into our facilities, danced past the moving floor lasers, skipped past the cameras and still didn't wake the baby.  They then proceeded to sabotage this perfectly good batch of wildflower mead with copious amounts of lime, pecan, and graham.  The only evidence left behind was a simple note that stated: "Hecho a Mano".

Barrel-Aged Borealis


Barrel-Aged Borealis is a limited edition mead crafted with 100% raw wildflower honey, buckwheat honey, vanilla bean, and just a touch of locally roasted coffee bean.  Aged for one year in barrels used by a local brewery for their award-winning Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, this complex mead is not for the weak at heart. Enjoy!

Tupelo Dry Mead

2013 FLIWC - Bronze Medal Winner

2013 FLIWC - Bronze Medal Winner

Spiced Apple Cyser is a sweet mead crafted with 100% raw Ohio wildflower honey, fresh Ohio apple cider, spices, and yeast.  This apple pie-inspired cyser can be enjoyed year round, but with cinnamon and nutmeg notes, is always a treat when the air becomes crisp and the holidays approach.


The Hop Resinance Series is a limited release, three part series of single hopped meads.  We made a single batch of wildflower honey mead and divided it into three smaller batches with the only difference being the hops used to dry hop these meads.  The hops reign supreme allowing for the unique hop characteristics to take center stage.
