mead club

We'd like to think this will turn into something more than just a club - that this will become a diverse, tightly knit community of long loyal consumers of our mead, newbies looking for alternative ways to imbibe and everyone in between. We are kicking off The Mead Club at Brothers Drake and it is an honor to invite you into our inner circle of mead sharing.

At Brothers Drake Meadery, we source raw Ohio honey and high quality ingredients to design some of the most refined and tasty meads available.  We aim to create meads that are not only delicious on their own but also pair well with food, versatile in cocktails and embody the energy of their ancient brews.

Mead has deep roots. It is one of the common denominators across cultures, carrying with it the mysteries of myth and legend.  It has knit together centuries of brewers, healers and celebrators alike. We want to bring this special tradition to you to enjoy and share in the now.  

Every quarter we will share a special selection of our meads with you. Our selection will give you a sneak peek at our newest batches and craziest experiments. We'll also dig deep into the mead vault to gift you some of our rarest finds that are aged to perfection. Other benefits of membership include mead tastings and food pairing events, early access to ticketed shows on our stage and access to members only meads and vintages not available to the public.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q. I'd like to pick up my club releases at the meadery...how do I make that happen?

  • A. Send an email to sara@brothersdrake.com and let us know that you'd like to pick-up.

  • Q. What will be included in quarterly club releases?

  • A. Quarterly club releases will include a selection of meads made by the meadmaker.  Releases will include a mix of of year-round, seasonal and limited release meads.  We will make sure to mix things up throughout the year to provide an awesome variety of meads that span the category with different styles.  You may receive the same mead more than once on occasion but only styles that we are super excited about or that we feel you'll definitely want more than one of!  

  • Q. Take my money!  When/How do I pay?

  • A.  The Mead Society is free to join.  You're only billed at the time of each quarterly shipment.  We will send out an email a few weeks in advance and let you know that your delicious package of mead will be shipping soon.  We'll also email the day before and let you know the charge will be coming to the card.

  • Q. How much will shipping be?

  • A. Our club management platform, Vinoshippper, has managed the lowest shipping rates possible.  Shipping of course will depend upon your where you're located but you should expect roughly $16-$30 based on distance from where we are located.  One note is that shipping charges tend to peak at the six bottle level...in other words it's usually only about $5.00 or so more to ship twelve bottles than it is to just ship six.
