You cannot miss out on this!

I cannot speak higher of this family- owned Meadery run by the loveliest people - Michael and Alejandra! The tour of the herb/fruit gardens and tasting was personal and undeniably a highlight of my families trip to CR! The mead and beer was not only delicious and packed with exquisite, unique flavor profiles, but each bottle is backed by a touching story from the owners! This place embodies the character, ingenuity, and (literal) sweetness you are in search for! You cannot miss out on this!
