Studying mead in its natural habitat is much more enjoyable than exploring the dank, melancholy caverns of root beer's namesake. Stroll past blissful honey stores with this Groupon.

Romance packages sweep patrons through a deluxe mead-minded walking tour in which pairs learn how Moonlight Meadery makes its signature honey wines. Each pair also receives two large engraved commemorative glasses from which they can sip up to eight on-hand meads during the tasting. Cheese and crackers are also provided. Reservations are not required, and tours are held every half hour.
With its three basic ingredients—honey, water, and yeast—the making of mead sounds misleadingly simple. But Michael Fairbrother tinkered with the recipe for this ancient drink in his garage for 17 years before he felt ready to open Moonlight Meadery and share the results. Michael has fine-tuned the fermentation process to craft batches of mead from ethically sourced, unpasteurized honey, which imparts each sip with rich color, vivid aromas, and the pleasant buzz that bees make while wading into a hot tub. Michael’s traditional mead rests side by side with fruit-tinged and spiced varietals that meld flavors such as tart rhubarb and Madagascar-bourbon vanilla beans with New Hampshire wildflower honey.
