Honey Moon Mead & Cider

We randomly discovered Honey Moon Mead & Cider while perusing a beer and cider pamphlet. They specialize in mead (honey wine) along with cider and cocktails.

They’re located in an alleyway but it’s easy enough to spot them. They’re close to the Bellingham Farmers Market.

We dropped in on an early Saturday evening (around 5:00pm). It’s a cute spot with a couple cozy booth tables and communal style tables down the middle. There was only one server/waitress working but she was friendly and chatty.

They even have a few board games tucked away in a corner.

They apparently have happy hour (5:00pm to 7:00pm) but it’s not advertised inside.

Bar snacks are always welcoming but only the spicy chicharrones caught our eye.

Spicy chicharrones
DSC09345Bar snacks were complimentary so we decided to try a bowl of chicharrones. Light and crunchy.

Baked mac and cheese
DSC09360No better way to describe this than it being an adult mac n cheese. Not too heavy. Baked well.

Flight ($10.00 US for 6)
DSC09344We decided to try three meads (raspberry, orange and wassail) and three ciders (session, cherry and cranberry).

Our favourite ones were the raspberry mead and session cider. Raspberry was sweet (but not overly so) and smooth. The session was refreshing and quaffable. Can’t quite pinpoint what the flavour was but it was fruity and floral.

If you want to try something different, worth a visit to HMM&C.
