Drink Like Royalty

First Central Alabama Meadery

We are  Ivy League Brew. We are a Meadery in Alabaster, AL. Mead, a.k.a. honey-wine, has an amazing history of one of the first alcoholic beverages.

Our Story

Alabaster's Hometown Meadery

Ivy League Brew stems from thousands of years of practical application mixed with the genius of Ivy League minds. Making the best tasting meads is only half of the experience or walking into our prestigious establishment. The best stories are a happy accident that creates an everlasting effect on the hearts and minds of countless individuals. We stepped into this awesome beverage by accident in 2010 and never looked back. 

We realized quickly how little access there was to this delightful beverage. So after diligently working to create the best meads, we decided the atmosphere of our establishment should coincide. Our fellow mead enjoyers should be able to be treated like royalty as they consume the “Drink of the Gods”.
