Apis Meadery

Scheduled for May 5, 2015 at 6:00 PM at Monaca in Tasting

David Cerminara, a brewer at the North Side’s Penn Brewery, opened Apis Meadery in 2014 to brew and ferment mead, an alcohol created by fermenting honey with water and other fruits, spices or grain.

“The city doesn’t have anything like this,” said Cerminara, 31. “We have a great cidery now – we need a great meadery. We have a million great breweries that keep popping up and getting better and better. This is the next step, I think.”

Despite the sit-down style of the meadery, he said he hopes most of his business will occur outside of the location. He said he has about 20 local contracts lined up with bars and restaurants throughout the city that are interested in selling and promoting the mead.
