Keeper's Cut Meadery


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. 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.
