Maine Mead Works

Today’s Press Herald published a profile of Maine Mead Works.

“Wait, don’t go anywhere. Yes, the topic is mead today. But no, you are not trapped in a time warp or at a Renaissance Fair. There will be no words with an ‘e’ randomly stuck on the end, no cheesy costumes, no faux lords and ladies who talk as if they just stepped out of the Middle Ages.

That’s not what Eli Cayer and Ben Alexander had in mind when they opened their new meadery in Portland.”
