MoonStruck Meadery hosted its grand opening weekend Friday, October 28th through Sunday, October 30th at 2221 Madison St. in Olde Towne Bellevue. Doors officially opened on October 28th.

MoonStruck Meadery will be the first meadery to open in the state of Nebraska and will initially offer a variety of mead, including both still and  carbonated, and flavors such as hops, cherry and plum. Also available will be flavored soda and bulk honey.

Mead has a history that goes back more than 8,000 years and is believed to be the world’s oldest alcoholic drink. It’s a fermented  beverage made from honey, water and yeast. It can be created in an almost limitless array of varieties including Melomel (fruit or fruit juice ) , Cyser (apples), Capsumel (chile peppers), and Metheglins (spices ). Mead has a distinct flavor and aroma not found in wine or beer, however both types of drinkers are sure to enjoy!

MoonStruck Meadery is owned by Brian Schlueter, along with his business partner, Dustin Koppit. Their passion for mead stems from years of homebrewing, and their interest in educating others on the art of craft beverages.

MoonStruck Meadery will have a tasting room available evening and weekends and available for private parties.
