Meridian Hive Meadery

As Austin’s first and only meadery, Meridian Hive Meadery specializes in hand-crafted and unusual honey wines. Its mission is to go beyond the rising national popularity of mead, the brew of choice in medieval times, to dive deeper into an even more niche market to produce unique carbonated, slightly sparkling meads called ‘session meads.’ Meridian Hive Meadery is the only meadery in Texas producing these award-winning session meads that also utilize local and unique ingredients. Grant funds was used to increase production capabilities to meet the high demand for the session meads, allowing further innovation using diverse and unique ingredients to craft new recipes, and introduce the public to variations of this near-forgotten beverage.
