We are a Family enterprise and start up business who discovered the glory of mead back in 2010 and fell in love with it. Starting with humble home brewing adventures with my son, it was around 2016 that it became our goal to bring a great tasting beverage to the marketplace and spread awareness for the unique drink of the gods (mead)... thus the adventure of Zen Bee Meadery began.
Zen Bee is about recognizing and embracing the taste of now. Mead is the oldest fermented drink on earth and we bring this delicious history into the present. We are grateful for all those who have been there to guide us on this journey, and strive for continuously improving our craft as we move forward. The products we make are primarily what we enjoy drinking but we are also willing to push the boundaries in the flavors and unique combinations we make.
While home brewing we won First Place in the Ohio State Fair homebrew competition (mead category) and now as a commercial Mead maker we’re just getting started. We are proud to say we took home Best of Show & Five (5) Medals at the 2020 National Honey Board Mead Competition : 2 Gold, 2 Silver and a Bronze. Our Mead is carried in multiple locations in Columbus with more being added regularly… (See Our MEAD for current locations). We’re still working on the build out for our tasting room but have lots more to share with you so stay tuned for updates and don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter (just message us below) we'll keep you up to date on special events and bottle releases.
