Year two: More spice! BBQ and Music!

Hunter Mead Sideways

Join us for a one of a kind sensory experience.

Last year we lost our minds and decided to make a handful of extra spicy meads (honey wines) with truly scary peppers. Turns out, people loved them and we sold out quickly. Join us again for a cellar tasting amongst the French oak barrels that help to make these one of a kind beverages possible.

This year, we're welcoming back two favorites and adding a limited release to the mix. Check out the menu below.

  • Hunter: The original. A Balanced slow burn, lemony with well-aged wood flavors.
  • Big Game Hunter: Black pepper notes alongside chile pepper spice. A Lasting slow burn.
  • Ghost Hunter: Smoky hot with highly floral killer bee honey
  • Scorpion Hunter: Woodsy spice with a sharp kick that sits high in the throat.
  • Project Hunter: Reaper. The hottest we've ever made, from the world's hottest pepper. *Only 150 bottles are available.*

You ticket gets you a regular tasting as well as a tasting of the entire spicy flight. You'll also get first dibs on our secret limited release. 

This is our tribute to fathers, but you certainly don't have to be a father to attend. Ladies like to get their spice on too!


Saturday Only:

Pork Authority will he here all day serving up their soon-to-be-famous BBQ. Musical act Austin and Olivia (formerly Skeleton Twins) will here from 3-4pm. Admission is free!

Father's Day Mead Flight of Spice

Tickets are limited!

Honey + Hot Peppers + Booze. Friends forever.

This Father's Day, we're releasing three new additions to our "Hunter" family of spicy meads (honey-wines). Honey has an amazing ability to enhance and elongate capsacian's effect. Get a taste of the following with each ticket purchased:

  • Hunter: The original. A Balanced slow burn, lemony with well-aged wood flavors.
  • Big Game Hunter: Black pepper notes alongside chile pepper spice. A Lasting but slow burn.
  • Fish Hunter: Maryland-native Fish Peppers are understated at first, but grow with each sip. Bright acidity
  • Ghost Hunter: Smokey hot with highly floral killer bee honey
  • Scorpion Hunter: Woodsy spice with a sharp kick that sits high in the throat.

 

With the help of locally grown peppers and high quality honey, we've managed to make a libation that plays with the senses like no other. 

A limited quantity of bottles will be available for sale after each tasting.
