Local Honey with Fruit & Spices. That’s It.

Mead, with honey as its primary sugar source for fermentation, has a taste history of every flower that a bee visited during our honey's creation. We use this raw, flavor packed natural sugar to craft modern mead in a huge spectrum of flavors, ranging from letting honey stand alone in our evergreen traditional Wild Ohio to our wildly experimental PB&J release. Mead is the wild west of fermentation, so here are no stuffy standards that curbs Brothers Drake’s creativity.

Brothers Drake Meadery was established in 2007 in Worthington, Ohio when fewer than 40 meaderies existed in the United States. The origin of our namesake refers to the Drake brothers, Eric and Woody, who were creating mead well before one could readily find home brewing kits.

Mead Master, Julian Menaged, joined us in 2020 and has lead the effort to expand our production into a new location in Grandview Heights.  

Schedule a tour time to meet Julian, sample meads and learn more about our business.  

We know you're here for the delicious meads, but you'll stay because you'll find some truly creative and interesting new friends at Brothers Drake.

Our first location in the Short North has become a local cornerstone of music, art and delicious drinks. 

Our back room holds our barrel aging projects. Many of our barrels hail from our neighbors at Middle West Spirits!  The bar operates as a tasting room, a night club, a music stage and a great local meet up. 

The Bar is also available for private events.  We host everything from out of the box business meetings to weddings and reunions.  Book our barrel room or the whole venue.
