Meade - What's all the Buzz About?

The McDowell Chamber of Commerce was pleased to celebrate the Grand Opening of Keeper’s Cut Meadery with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 23, 2019. The purpose of the occasion was to recognize new business owners, Charlie Meyers, Kathryn Curran and Kurt Meyers, and celebrate their new business. 
What started with a dream of a tasting room has turned into a two and a half year journey building one of Marion’s newest destination tasting rooms and event spaces. Keeper’s Cut Meadery, located in the old Laughridge furniture warehouse, makes traditional and flavored meade. Meade is a fermented beverage traditionally made from honey, water, and yeast. Sometimes called “the drink of the gods,” meade has been cultivated and consumed across the world for thousands of years.
The Meadery will feature tastings, regular live music and food truck offerings. In addition to their indoor seating available in the tasting room and adjoining production room, they offer outdoor seating on their deck and dog-friendly patio.
Their 3,200 square foot mead hall is available for weddings, receptions, parties, and meetings seven days a week. Additionally, they offer or will soon offer; ‘bee to bottle’ tours, local sourwood, and spring honey, fine chocolates, charcuterie, and snacks to pair with your favorite meades. You are welcome to bring in your own food to enjoy as well.
So, if you're looking for that special place to sample the “nectar of the gods” or host a gathering, then Keeper’s Cut is the place for you.  This one-of-a-kind appealing and spacious business is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Marion.     
Location: 175 W Henderson Street, Marion.  Hours:  Wed - Thurs, 12-9pm, Fri-Sat, 12-10pm and Sun, 12-6pm. For more info call (828) 803-3766 or visit -
