___________________________

Special fundraiser cocktails for the cats
continues this week!


During the YARN BALL formal masquerade evening last Saturday we served two very special cocktails named after Freya's cats, Bygul and Trjegul. 25% of proceeds of these cocktails go directly to Cattyshack, our beloved cat rescueing and rehabilitating neighbours downstairs.

We still have ingredients left to make these cocktails, so we're running them all of this week until supplies are gone, continuing to donate 25% of sales even though the official event is over.

Support the cats!
Get yourself one of these before they are gone!

ALABAMA TROTH
OFFICE HOURS


The Alabama steward of The Troth, Jay Meeks, holds his office hours at the group table every third Saturday of the month.

This month Jay will be leading a discussion regarding the lesser known Norse deities.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about Norse mythology and/or following the Norse path is welcome to join him and other like mindeds for conversation and companionship.


 
 

We are proud to be North Alabama's first meadery, and only the second in the entire State. We call ourselves a MICRO meadery due to our very small square footage, focusing on small 5-7 gallon handcrafted batches. Our fermentation room is able to house 36-42 active batches. As of last month we have begun upgrading the size of some of our carboys in order to increase bottle production.

Ravenwood Meadery is part of Ravenwood Creative Studio located at Studio 2069 at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, a cotton mill built in 1901, converted into over 150 working studios that house artists, makers, independent businesses, and restaurants. We are immensely proud to be direct neighbours of Irons One whiskey distillery, Dragon's Forge Cafe, and the largest art gallery inside the complex.

We conduct sales of 750ml bottles in our sales room when they are available, usually twice a week. We post here and on social media as soon as we have firm dates. Due to our small production, bottles to take home are not always available.

We have a have a small tasting bar where you'll be able to enjoy house mead on tap as well as mead cocktails and seasonal drinks. The tasting bar operates each day we are open, and have a cozy seating area for you to relax in. You can also make a reservation for the group table for you and your friends.

In addition, you can purchase our mead tumblers, horn cups, or horn mugs, and borrow our cork screw so that you can enjoy a sip while exploring the mill, watching a concert on the docks, watching a horror movie during the month of October, sitting on the lawn, or enjoying food from the restaurants.

You can track the progress of our batches here.

 

How to find us at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment:

As you enter the main gate, you will see small guard shack. Park near the guard shack.

On foot from the guard shack, follow the concrete path around the side of the building until you come to the first door on your left, grey DOOR 30 in the concrete seating area.

We are at the top of the stairs next to Dragon's Forge Cafe.
