Maine Mead Works Ram Island Iced Tea

Ram Island Mead

The other day I was lucky enough to stumble upon one of the newer (to me, at least) creations from Maine Mead Works. MMW is a Portland, Maine mead maker established in 2007.  Since then they have been consistently producing high quality mead.  Last year they had a tea mead as well, but it was not bottled as far as I know. But this summer it is a different story! They now have bottled Ram Island iced tea mead!  This is an excellent light and fun alternative to beer for tea lovers! It taste like tea.  It tastes a little like mead.  It has mint and it has honey.  What more could you want? I first sampled it at Novare Res where they offered it on there ever-changing and always impressive draught list. I liked it a lot, though I found it a bit minty for my taste.

Sorry the picture quality is not great on these photos.  I was in a bar – what do you expect? 🙂

Anyway, if you find yourself in the Portland area this summer keep a look out for this beauty on draught lists or at the Maine Mead Works sampling room.

  1. Wonder if it can be purchased anywhere? Sounds terrific!
    Thanks, Ab. Goo review!

    • Hey Linda! Thanks! I know that it can be purchased in bottles around town. For example the Bier Celler (biercellar.com) on Forest Ave. has it. The MMW tasting room also has it for purchase and sampling.
