The main reason this is a 3-star review is simply because it's a long way to the meadery, and I'd suggest you go only if you are already in the area. Combine it with a trip to the Foggy Ridge Cidery and the Crooked Road for music, and that would be a 5-star trip! Wind your way through deep Virginia woods, along narrow winding roads, and up a long gravel driveway. Find yourself looking at a gorgeous deep-porched log cabin made from logs that are hundreds of years old. Walk up the front steps, and cozy up to the small tasting bar on the "sippin porch" for tastes of some unusual honey-based meads, made on site, from the dozens of bee hives scattered around this mountain property. The tasting fee was $5.00, and we tasted at least 8 different types of mead - ranging from wildflower to hops to squash and raspberries infused. Favorite was Lime Bee Brew, a tart, thirst-quenching beverage that was unusual, and very tasty. It takes a while to get to the meadery, but would make a great part of a long day exploring this part of Virginia, just a tiny bit off the famous Crooked Road for bluegrass music. Of course, if you're a fan of mead - just head right here, and enjoy!
