​​​​Our NEW SUMMER Meads are out!
For a limited run only, our new sparkling lemon Swingdingle, and iced tea Swamp Water, will be available until the last can is sold... That's right, its the first canned mead in Alberta!
​Take some awesome pictures and check out our Facebook Page for the summer contest open until August 30/2018!

Our flagship line of Buzzsaw is a simple traditional mead that uses only honey, water and yeast. Our water is sourced from a local supplier that fits it specifically to our needs. The yeast we use for fermentation gives a hint of tropical, citrus flavor to the mead. The honey is prominent in flavour but not in sweetness as we are bound and determined to break the assumption that honey drinks have to be sweet! Instead, we offer a more dry, refreshing beverage, boasted at an 8% alcohol by volume content, that drinks more like a cider or light beer. Best served ice cold.
As logs come into the sawmill, it falls to the Sawyer to direct how each will be cut into lumber. Skill and intuition guide him in knowing which pieces will yeild the highest grade. In that same spirit, the mead that bears his name is a skillful blend of raw, unprocessed, Alberta honey with noble and new world hops. Our hop combination is strategically added to the batch so as not to make it taste like an IPA beer, but more of a floral, hoppy accent to the traditional mead.
As a local honey producer of Clearwater County Alberta, we are so incredibly proud to announce that...we made it! Delicious mead made from pure, raw, Alberta wildflower honey. 
For those of you who are new to the mead world, mead is the oldest form of alchol in the history of mankind. There are many different ideas surrounding the origination of this honey drink. Some say it began in Africa, some say Greece, while others are convinced it was Egyptian or Old Norse. Wherever it began, the world has been enjoying it ever since it's beginning.
From the manliest of men to newlywed brides, mead was the choice.
With our new world spin on a historic recipe, we hope you will enjoy these drinks as much as those of the days of old!
