Unicorn Unchained Meadery



The unicorn wandered over here from a place called Unicorn Dreams. Unfortunately that website no longer exists.


Welcome to the Unicorn Unchained Meadery (U2M). U2M was started in August 1994 by Rebecca Sobol and Marcia Crary. In 2019 my half of Unicorn Unchained started collaborating with Dick Dunn at Talisman Farms.

We are a non-commercial meadery and have no mead for sale. So why is this a website? Brewing has never happened at my house and the brew notes are at the brew site. This is my copy and a website means I can look things up when I take mead to a party and someone wants to know more. None of it any kind of big secret, so if other people find it useful that's great.

Commercial meaderies can be hard to find, but they are out there. Since I make my own, I don't buy mead and don't know much about what's out there for sale. That said Redstone Meadery in Boulder, CO sells some nice meads.
