Mead Definition

Mead (/miːd/)
an alcoholic drink of fermented honey and water.
"the tavern stocks beer, cider, perry, and mead"

Mead has been around for thousands of years but has only recently made a comeback in the world of alcohol. If you're not familiar with mead, it's a fermented drink that's made by mixing honey, water, and yeast.

The honey is the source of sugar for the yeast to consume and turns into alcohol. The strength of mead can vary, from light and refreshing to strong and complex. If you're interested in exploring this historic drink, read our beginner's guide to mead.

About Us


We started Batch Mead in 2019 to leave our Silicon Valley tech careers and pursue our real passion, MEAD!

We love locally sourced honey, apples and other ingredients. We focus on small batches to keep taps rotating and deliver delicious meads and hard ciders.

We believe mead is an experience, and our tasting room reflects all the notes of that ideal experience.

We recently won Best in Show from the San Diego International Beer Festival (2020, 2021 & 2022)! As well as several other wine, beer & mead awards!
