Q&A with Matt Trahan, Co-founder
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Smaller menu but designed to accompany a tasting and provide a quick snack or a full evening. Small plates and quick preparation allow for multiple rounds that fit a customer’s needs perfectly. Lots of special menu’s around events. Oyster Nights every Friday night with $1.50 a shuck oysters.
What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
Both Matt and Ash worked in a restaurant before starting the Meadery. Katelin, the tasting room manager, was a sous chef at multiple establishments before taking over at the meadery.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
The original tasting room was originally a post office at the turn of the century, a grocery store in the 30’s and shoe store in the 40’s. The shelves and footholds from the shoe store still exist today.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn’t cover?
The cheeses on the Ploughman’s Lunch pair very well with the Meads produced at Sap House Meadery. The Gorgonzola Dulce and the Sugar Maple are a staff favorite.
