keeps visitor safety in very high regard and will not
reopen them until a solution can be found to make the
60+ year old elevators safe to travel on.

We can assist you up the stairs to visit the 2nd floor
if you have a stroller, or if you are able to climb
two flights of stairs with assistance.
Please call us on (938) 207-3394 when you arrive

We are proud to be North Alabama's first meadery. We call ourselves a MICRO meadery due to our very small square footage, focusing on very small handcrafted batches (5-50 gallons).

Ravenwood Meadery is located inside Studio 2069 at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, a cotton mill built in 1901, converted into over 150 working studios that house 200+ artists, makers, independent businesses, and restaurants. We are immensely proud to be direct neighbours of Irons One whiskey distillery, Dragon's Forge Cafe, and the largest art gallery inside the complex.

We conduct sales of bottles in our sales room when they are available. We post here and on social media as soon as we have firm dates. Due to our small production, bottles to take home are not always available, but we do have 1000ml growlers & fills.

We have a have a small tasting bar where you'll be able to enjoy house mead on tap as well as mead cocktails and seasonal drinks. The tasting bar operates each day we are open, and have a cozy seating area for you to relax in. You can also make a reservation for the group table for you and your friends.

In addition, you can purchase our mead tumblers, drinking horns, horn cups and horn mugs so that you can enjoy a sip while exploring the mill, watching a concert on the docks, sitting on the lawn, or enjoying food from the restaurants.

 

How to find us at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment:

As you enter the main gate, you will see a small guard shack. Park near the guard shack.

On foot from the guard shack, follow the concrete path around the side of the building until you come to the first door on your left, grey DOOR 30 in the concrete seating area.

We are at the top of the stairs next to Dragon's Forge Cafe.

STUDIO: 2069 (yellow route, 2nd floor north)




For those who need accessibility:

PLEASE NOTE THAT BOTH ELEVATORS AT LOWE MILL ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF SERVICE

Please follow the directions above to door 30 and call us on (938) 207-3394 so we can come and assist you up the stairs if you are able to climb stairs with assistance, we are happy to carry your rollators and strollers. Please note that there are TWO flights of stairs to reach the 2nd floor.

 

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

 

In addition to mead, we offer some great merchandise to go with it.

Various styles and sizes of drinking horns; horn cups, mugs and tumbers; tshirts (sizes small to burly viking!); rune carved pendants; beard combs; etc. Can't figure out what to get for your friends? Grab a gift card and let them choose for themselves.
