Feeling the Need for Mead? La Grange’s Rohan Meadry Has You Covered!

By  | 

There are a lot of winding back roads around La Grange, Round Top, Fayetteville, and Giddings. One delightful surprise hidden within is the Blissful Folly Farm. This picturesque site is the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon, enjoying an adult beverage. The serving options go beyond wine; mead and cider are big hitters on the menu. All made on site, Rohan Wines & Meads, and Blissful Folly hard ciders & fruit wines are produced in small batches. In fact, Rohan Meadery is the oldest meadry in Texas, and all of their meads are a Czech-German style, resulting in a drier product.

Mead is the oldest fermented libation known to man. It’s created by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with various fruits, spices, grains, or hops. Honeybees begin the process by gathering nectar, then producing honey. Over one million flowers must be visited to produce a single pound of honey, which is sourced from Bee Wilde Honey, a family-based beekeeping business based in Montgomery, Texas, that manages over 3,000 colonies.

Open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., seating is available inside and out, with coverage and live music on the weekend. If you like to mix your mead and grains, an artisanal pizza truck is open there on Saturday and Sunday. A great way to get your feet wet is the tasting, which allows for five samples of meads, wines, or ciders in stock for $10. You can also tour the property, either self-guided through the bee garden or guided through the garden and hives. Find this slice of tasty, revitalized history at 6002 FM 2981, La Grange, TX 78945.
