Details of Zymarium Meadery’s Grand Opening is August 19th

Orlando’s Zymarium Meadery is grand opening on Saturday, August 19th.

Here are the details from Zymarium:

18+ different meads on tap, special one-off kegs, limited bottles for sale, amazing food trucks! Free entry, no RSVP needed!


In order to allow more people to enjoy the grand opening throughout the day and do our best to not have to turn people away or have people wait in the heat, WE WILL BE LETTING GROUPS INTO THE TAPROOM IN 2 HOUR BLOCKS, starting at 12pm (noon).

We will be using colored wristbands for each 2-hour block, which will be given away at the door on a first-to-arrive basis. Once all wristbands for a 2-hour block are given out, we will cycle to the next color, and so on.

  • Each two-hour block is a set time (12pm-2pm, 2pm-4pm, 4pm-6pm, etc.), so we encourage you to arrive at the beginning to take full advantage of the 2 hours, which should be plenty of time to enjoy a variety of great meads! At the beginning of each block we will let in the next colored-wristbands, so we will be asking everyone from the previous block to settle any tabs and make your way outside
  • If a group leaves early before the 2 hour block has ended, we will let people from the next block in early to fill their spot (until we reach capacity).

Bottle Release:

We reserved a limited amount of previously released meads to have available at our Grand Opening! Bottles go on sale at NOON, and each mead has a different limit per person (#pp).

  • Endless Blueberry (2pp)
  • Endless Blueberry Vanilla (1pp)
  • Endless Cherry Pie (2pp)
  • Endless Raspberry: Tupelo Reserve (1pp)
