It Was Good - Now It's Closed

I don't know when they closed, but they did. Sometimes you will find their Meads on restaurant menus with a "limited" notice next to it - that is because they are closed.

We stopped here on the fermentation tour in Homer. We were the only customer in the place so we were able to ask all sorts of questions, taste a bunch of different meads, and get some background on the meadery. It was a fun stop.

We found out Mead is very flavorful, and is treated like fine wines. The only problem we had was the prices on the board, didn't match what we were charged. We purchased 2 bottles of Mead which...

Who knew I could like mead? A relaxed tasting experience at the store encouraged us to bring home two bottles. I also appreciated that Cafe Cups served Ring of Fire's mead with our dinner or else I might not have gone to their store front on my own.
