Just an incredible delight. Staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and incredibly friendly. Just so generous with their time and information, to say nothing of the excellent mead! Well worth looking them up at your finer liquor stores, but absolutely worth the visit to sample their full catalogue and enjoy their charming company.
We had an amazing time here! We went on a Sunday afternoon in July and it was quiet, so we had the chance to talk for a long while with one of the staff. They were so kind and answered our questions about their mead and the process of making it. The tasting flight was a great way to taste 6 of their current meads and get a sense of the difference flavor profiles. Definitely needs to be on your list of stops in Ipswich, MA!
Wow what a find! Tucked away just off the main downtown area in Ipswich, this meadery took me completely by surprise. We had a flight of 6 meads, plus a taste of the sparkling berry mead on offer. Each one was phenomenal, from driest to sweetest. We ended up buying two bottles, and I'll definitely be back for more.
A larger variety of mead and they're all good! The shop is small but they have an outdoor seating area, which is a nice addition.
Have stopped at 1634 Meadery many times since me and a friend happened upon it a few years ago. Lack of physical space is all this place lacks. The tasting room is cozy, but too small for any meaningful social distancing, which is important in the new normal of COVID. Otherwise, the meadery produces exceptional mead, a few bottles of which I happily bought and drank with friends and family.
