Arktos Meadery which began distributing their award-winning meads in Grand Rapids last summer has now opened their tasting room on Grand Rapids southwest side. The location is at 1251 Century Avenue SW where an office suite has been converted into an authentic style mead hall. The grand opening was held on Saturday, August 15th with a full variety of both draft and bottled mead available and complimentary food. Owner and meadmaker Maciej Halaczkiewicz hosted a preview of the tasting room for Goblet Club members an hour prior to the official opening at 4 p.m.

Grand Rapids might be “Beer City” and home to many great breweries, but other fermented beverages are now making a name for themselves here as well. The People’s Cider Co. for instance has been producing some great hard cider for over a year now, while Long Road Distillers hope to put G.R. on the map for craft spirits this fall. Another new player is Arktos Meadery which has plans to soon add mead to the mix. The name “Arktos” comes from the greek word for bear, which is appropriate because bears love honey, and mead is a fermented honey beverage often associated with ancient Greek mythology as being the nectar of the gods.
