Amazing place, great atmosphere and delicious mead! My fiancé and I decided to stop by on a rainy day expecting to taste a little and leave and we ended up trying everything they have, enjoying it all (even the spicy pineapple) and sipping on carbonated flights for a couple of hours. We left with a couple of bottles and are excited to go back whenever we pass through again.

The meads here are fantastic, made by a true craftsman. Highlights include the traditional "Zeus's", the cherry mead, and the carbonated apple cyser. The space is beautiful as well, reminiscent of some of the more pleasant wineries I've visited. Reasonable to-go prices too, especially for the quality you're buying. It's worth the drive from Asheville.

Awesome local place. The owner is very informative and attentive. The mead is from great quality and the place is gorgeous. We try to go once a year and it never disappoints.

About Us

Keeper's Cut Meadery makes traditional and flavored meads from our production facility, tasting room, and event space in Western North Carolina. We are open to the public Wednesday-Sunday in lovely downtown Marion, in the Historic Depot District, and feature a tasting bar with indoor seating as well as a dog-friendly patio. In addition to our mead, we serve charcuterie, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. You are also welcome to bring in your own food to enjoy here at Keeper's Cut, or order in from a local restaurant.

While you are here, pick up some of our own sourwood honey, or a logo hat or tee. We will soon offer fine chocolates to pair with your favorite meads, as well as educational 'bee to bottle' tours.

We are family-friendly, with a relaxed atmosphere enjoyable for all ages. Older children and adults enjoy our Fountain Room, connecting over a game of checkers, chess, or backgammon on our beautiful antique game tables.

Our 4,000 square foot facility is available for weddings, receptions, showers, parties, meetings, audio recording, and more, seven days a week. Contact us for more information and to schedule a walk-through.
