Golden Rule Mead seeks to establish itself as a dependable and responsible participant in the Vermont agricultural industry by using ingredients from local apiaries, orchards, and other farms and producers to create surprisingly delicious and highly approachable meads. Mead (or honey wine) has begun re-entering the public consciousness along with the rest of the craft brewing industry. We plan to lead that resurgence by brewing a deliciously eclectic yet accessible and affordably priced palette of meads with a focus on sustainable, responsible growth, compelling innovation, and adding value to Vermont-sourced ingredients. Our mission within the alcohol manufacturing and distribution industries centers always on doing for others as we would have them do for us.

Our meads always begin with 100% VT honey and use a variety of other ingredients – locally sourced when possible – to produce a thoughtful array of characters. Golden Rule Mead is fermented dry (sugar-free), naturally gluten-free, receives no sulfites, and gets gently carbonated for an end product that you can feel good and feel good about drinking. Our products are available in stores around Vermont (see for more details), and our tasting room is currently open Fridays and Saturdays from 4 to 8 p.m. for tastings and bottle sales – feel free to bring a refillable bottle to fill from the taps!
