Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement. A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey, and black pepper. What they didn't realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences. Stricken by fear after its compleation, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle. Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us...

The holidays are over, but it doesn't mean you can't still enjoy some delicious pie. Ours is made from fresh apple cider, honey, and pie spices. Perfect after dinner sipper. Buy a bottle, or enjoy it by the glass at the meadery while supplies last. A little under 10 gallons was made.

Inspired by a traditional Vietnamese ice cream, the bold star anise flavor may be too beaucoup for you. The white cardamom, juniper berries, orange zest and lime zest give it a twist that might seem like a major malfunction, but works together like a Marine and his rifle. Now sound off like you got a pair!
Less than 50 bottles of these were made, and we took a bunch for ourselves. So, you definitely won't find these on store shelves. They're only available at the meadery for a VERY limited time. We really want you to have one, but you probably won't get one because we didn't make enough. I guess it says something about the dichotomy of man, sir!

His lab rats can't get enough of the stuff. And soon, neither will you. Introducing the Evil Genius. The big bang is no longer a theory, it's your reality.

Simi Hendrix born Simian J. Monkenstein lived hard and drank well, one night in Belgium after a show during a wildberry induced purple haze Simian was mixing wildflower honey, tart Balton cherry juice and dry-hopped Styrian Goldings. The result? A Funky Belgian–inspired hopped cherry melomel. This revolutionary concoction was the inspiration for the mega hit ‘Funky Monky‘ sadly, Simi has disappeared into the French countryside but in his absence he has left us with an imperial libation to be treasured and savored. Don’t miss this its too funking good to pass up.
Have you ever seen that little label on the back of a bottle of B. Nektar Mead? You know, the one with all the numbers on it that looks like it's a price sticker? Well it's a batch number. Every bottle of mead we produce comes with a handy dandy batch number which, if you know how to read it, will tell you exactly when it was made, and the batch number. Here's how it works.
In the picture above, the bottle is from Release 46, made in September of 2009.
