Elgin Meadery

Dear Friends and Supporters,

It was with mixed emotions that we share the news of the closing of our tasting room in downtown Elgin at the end of 2023. Our journey together has been remarkable, and we are profoundly grateful for the support you have shown us over the years. Your enthusiasm and loyalty have been the backbone of our success, and for that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

As we turn the page on this chapter, we are thrilled to announce a new beginning: Elgin Meadery has joined forces with the newly established Valkyrie’s Kiss Meadery, under the leadership of founder Isaac Pruna, in New Braunfels, TX. This exciting merger marks the continuation of our legacy and introduces an opportunity for growth and innovation in the world of mead making.

 

Valkyrie’s Kiss is set to carry forward a selection of our meads, including “Cyser Aromatis, Traditionalis, and Cherry Nice to Meet You,” among others. Moreover, Valkyrie’s Kiss will broaden the horizon with an enticing new lineup of meads, and new unique creations.

 

Underpinning Valkyrie’s Kiss's commitment to excellence is the dedication to using the finest all-natural ingredients and locally sourced Texas honey, a tradition that has always been at the heart of our mead making philosophy. We are delighted to announce that Micah Erwin, the head mead maker at Elgin Meadery, will lend his expertise in a consultative capacity to ensure that our high standards and the legacy of our craft continue to thrive at Valkyrie’s Kiss.

 

Join Us for the Grand Opening Celebration!

Mark your calendars! Valkyrie’s Kiss will be hosting an opening party on June 7th at 4:30 PM at Krause’s Beer Garden in New Braunfels, Texas. This event is not just a celebration of new beginnings but also a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey thus far. We invite you to join us in welcoming Valkyrie’s Kiss Meadery to the vibrant Texas mead scene.

 

We are confident that you will find the same passion, quality, and dedication in Valkyrie’s Kiss Meadery that you have come to expect from us. Here’s to new adventures, continued friendships, and more exceptional mead!

 

Warmest regards,

 

The Team at Elgin Meadery

Elgin Mead

Hand Crafted | Locally Sourced

Inspired by ancient and medieval traditions, we bring a modern interpretation of honey wine to you! If you love wine, seek new flavor adventures, or are simply looking for a sustainable, paleo-friendly, or gluten-free alternative to beer, it's time to try mead! Wine made from honey.

 

At Elgin Meadery we craft balanced traditional meads in small batches that capture the delicate flavors and aromas of Texas honey and provide a unique and complementary backbone to our fruit, herbal, spiced, and barrel aged meads. 

Please enjoy this modern revival of the world's oldest drink!
