Garagiste Meadery started with humble beginnings as home meadmakers in 2015.
The prior year we'd had the opportunity to try meads from a small commercial outfit in Michigan. I don't know that we recognized at the time that it was a life altering event; but, mostly out of desire to have more mead in our lives that measured up to the quality we had experienced from them we decided to start making our own. Having no local meadmakers to draw from, this gave us the luxury of being unafraid to experiment with flavors and ingredients not associated with meads. Some experiments failed and others worked great, all had a powerful influence on how we saw mead and what we thought mead could be.
