Tampa, FL - Pye Road Meadworks, a family-owned meadery renowned for its hand-crafted top-quality craft meads, is thrilled to announce a partnership with Altered Craft Distribution to launch limited keg distribution of their highly acclaimed low ABV (“session”) meads in the Tampa Bay Area. Recognized as one of the world’s top 10 rated meaderies on Untappd, Pye Road Meadworks is set to splash ontothe local craft beverage scene with their unique and flavorful offerings.


Pye Road Meadworks prides itself on its commitment to using all-natural, unfiltered local honey sourced directly from trusted beekeepers in the Tampa Bay region. This dedication to quality ingredients and attention to detail has earned the meadery a devoted following among mead enthusiasts, as well as multiple gold medals from the National Honey Board and Mazer Cup International.


This foray into local distribution signifies a significant milestone for Pye Road Meadworks, enabling them to introduce their exceptional session meads to consumers across the Tampa Bay region. While session meads are known for their drinkability and lower alcohol content, Pye Road’s session meads are bold, flavor-forward offerings that still emphasize the exquisite local honey, making them an excellent choice for mead drinkers seeking a lighter, friendlier, full-flavored mead experience.

"We take great pride in hand-crafting each batch of mead pairing our incredible local honey with only the finest ingredients. We are confident that our session meads will open the eyes of both mead aficionados and those just discovering how delicious mead truly is."
