Get ready to meet the product that is changing the game in craft
brewing. We re-envisioned traditional mead to create crisp,
carbonated and perfectly balanced styles that pair equally well
with a weekend exploring outdoors, a dinner party with friends or
hanging out at your favorite tap house.
Let us introduce you to Author Draft Mead.
We had a crazy idea that mead should be more than what it is today
and rise in the ranks of the craft brew world. So we assembled an
all-star team of brewers and dreamers to explore how to get there.
Step 1 was to develop a new process of craft brewing mead that
stands alone in the industry and allows Author Draft Mead to be
meticulously crafted to be different.
In creating Author Draft Mead we found ourselves at the crossroads
of tradition and innovation. We translated all our learning and
expertise gained making award-winning craft beer into a brand new
product that is universally appealing.
If you love craft beer, you will love Author Draft Mead for its balanced
flavor, crisp mouth-feel and styles reminiscent of your favorite brew. If
you're a hard cider drinker, you will appreciate that Author Draft
Mead is also naturally gluten-free, with a perfect bite and yet not
overly sweet. Join us as we build new traditions together!
With access to an unmatched bounty in the Pacific Northwest, we
harvest the highest quality local honey, fruit, hops and other fine
ingredients to endlessly push the limits of Draft Mead.
We're pretty big fans of bees. You sort of have to be if you decide to go
all in on Draft Mead. One of the main reasons behind our love of bees is
that they are one of the only species in the animal kingdom that do no
harm. OK, other than the occasional sting, but put that aside.
Bees create and eat their own food and it is the mutually beneficial
relationship between plants and bees that turns sunlight into flowers
into honey into Author Draft Mead. Every time you drink our mead you
are supporting the sustainability of one of Earth's most treasured
