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. Since then, we’ve grown up alongside the community around us; now offering a full bar, live music and of course, mead in the Short North Arts District.
Since our founding, mead has experienced significant growth, as it is now the fastest growing category of alcoholic beverage today, with a new meadery opening up every few days. We continue to fuel the growth of this industry by educating our patrons through tours and demonstrations and dynamic collaborations with other local artisans. The Team at Brothers Drake Meadery is a pivotal part of how - and why - we do business. Local isn't just about the ingredients in our mead. It's the people around us that make and sell. When we support our team to work with fair wages and be a part of creating a local economy, we empower them to bring their skills and talents to a wider audience in a more effective way.
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.
