Yes, I've tried several of them and they're all top notch.

Excellent. I'll have to pick some up next time I'm there.

I'm not a mead fan, but this one is a liquid panty remover. SWMBO loves it and if SWMBO loves, it then so do I.

If you're ever in the Maine/northern New England area, Maine Mead Works in Portland makes some very good meads that are all on the drier side. Reasonably priced too; $14 a bottle if I recall correctly. They don't distribute out of state yet, but they are steadily extending their reach.

I'll second (or third) BNektar. I LOVE their Bourbon Barrel Cyser. But it is pretty pricey $23ish for a 375ml bottle. Their Orange Blossom is verry good as well.

Redstone meadery for sure... They are local, I use their bottles from the tasting room for my own,(there is always an ounce left, so I sample them every time I pick them up) they are grolsch style flip tops. Nectar of the hops, blackberry melomel, and their cyser are my favorites, they also have aged meads for 50$ per 500ml, their normal 6-8 month aged 750ml bottles are 20-30$. They ship direct to any state that allows it.
