This place was amazing! My husband and I really like meads and ciders so we new this place was a must on our visit to Durham. We got a few tasting flights with friends and loved almost everything we had! They have a large selection of many flavors so there is definitely something for everyone here. We went home with some bottles and I am already wanting to get more! Some flavor highlights for us were the Blackberry Crumble, the Honey Chai, and the Peach Ginger. Can't wait to come back!

This place is so cute and the mead is so good! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and will give recommendations as well. My friends and I did tasting flights and then bought bottles, it’s all delicious! The speciality seasonal flavors are fun and change a lot.

Stopped by today while in Durham. I've had their meads before but first time stopping by the meadery. Great product and great staff.

I don’t think I’d had but a small sip of mead previously, and Honeygirl made for a fine introduction. The tasting room is small but bright and clean. Combined with a friendly and knowledgeable staff, it makes for an inviting space. Honeygirl offers more than a dozen meads from basic to barrel aged and semi-sweet to dry. The ingredients are sourced locally (and, in one case, foraged by the manager) and incorporate a variety of apples and herbs. Hard-pressed (pun semi-intended) to make a decision, my wife and I settled on a flight consisting of spiced apple cyser, farmhouse wildflower, hibiscus lemonthyme, and tri-berry. The wildflower was all that I expected mead to be: a smooth honey wine. The cyser boasted some nice spice notes, but it also made me realize that I strongly prefer cider to its wine-based cousin. The tri-berry, on the other hand, was outstanding. A seasonal offering, it brings together mulberries, blackberries, blueberries, and black currant juice. The resulting concoction offered complex flavors and was not too sweet. We liked it so much that we ended up getting a bottle to take home. Honeygirl isn’t cheap – a flight of four is $15 and most glasses are in the $8-$12 range – but it’s a great way to try something different.

Been here so many times with friends! Their wine is mead or honey based and is so good. They have a great indoor and outdoor area. The service is amazing too.
