Visit our New Tap Room!!   
The tap room at the new facility is now open. But please excuse our mess while we finish up moving production to the new space. Our new tap room is much more than a tasting room. It's a place to come hang out, bring in some take-out, and chill for the evening or afternoon. We'll be rotating meads on tap and even have some special meadery only releases that might never see a bottle. We'll also be expanding our hours in the very near future.


1481 Wordsworth
Suite B
Ferndale, MI  48220 
Friday - 5:30pm - 10pm
Saturday - 1pm - 7pm

This new facility will house production of our draft meads, shipping/receiving, sales, administration, and our new tasting space. With about 5500 sq/ft, it allows us to produce about 500% more mead. It will also be home to the new B. Nektar Brewery as soon as licensing is complete. 

 

 

 

Apple Pi (Release 2/15/2013)

Apple Pi We made about 10 gallons of this one, so it's not going to be sold in stores. A rich sweet blend of apple cider and honey with apple pie spices to make the perfect winter warmer. Granny's pie never tasted this good.
 
375ml bottles
$19.99 each

$8 per 4oz pour.

Supplies are very limited.







 
Spring Mead Festival
April 20, 2013

Who's sick of winter?

It's been too long since we've had a big shindig. So on April 20th (4/20) at 12pm until 6pm, we're going to have a party. And because it's not a party without mead, we're making up a bunch of really cool ones for the event. 

I'll admit, we got caught off-guard last year at the August Mead Fest, and we ran out of a lot of the small batch stuff. So this year, we're making at least 3x as much as before. We may still run out, but your odds of getting to try everything have just improved.






We also learned that 1 table selling mead by the glass AND merch is just not enough. So this time, we have 2 outdoor bars, plus the merch/mead table at the bay door. Every table will also be able to accept credit cards.

Saturday, April 20th  2013  - 12pm - 6pm
at the OLD B. Nektar Facility
at 1505 Jarvis, Ferndale, MI  48220

New Barrel Aged Meads

Scheduled for release at our upcoming Spring Mead Fest is an oldie but goodie. The government has informed us that aging in a bourbon barrel means we can no longer call our Bourbon Barrel Mead a mead. I'm sure they have a good reason. But instead of me turning this into a rant about the government, I'd rather just tell you that our old favorite, the Bourbon Barrel Mead, is now called Episode 13 - B. Nektar Strikes Back. Please don't write us and tell us we're going to get sued.  Really...just don't.

Only 4 barrels made. 
19.5% ABV - $25 Suggested Retail  / 375ml bottle.



Also scheduled for a POSSIBLE release at the Spring Mead Fest is some more barrel aged goodness. The Zombies Take Manhattan is an Imperial Zombie Killer aged in rye whiskey barrels. We're waiting on label approval before we can officially announce the release. It's still possible that the government will come back and say something about how we can't use the name Mahnattan, or Zombies in the label. Again. Don't ask. It's a government thing. Anyway, to wet your appetite, here's the label we sent in for approval. 



11.25% ABV - $ TBD / 500ml bottle

The Zombies Take Manhattan

Upon release, BOTH of these meads will be going out to our distributors in all of our markets. I DON'T know which stores will get them.
