Charm City Meadworks

407 East Preston St. Suite B
Baltimore, MD 21226

Hours: Year Round

Charm City Meadworks was born out of a love of adventure and learning. Co-owner James Boicourt began keeping bees in college, after taking graduate-level entomology classes, and through the excess of honey, he started to translate his home-brewing hobby into the amateur crafting of honey-based spirits and beverages.

After college, his love for the water led him to a job at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, where he met fellow brew enthusiast and future co-owner Andrew Geffken. As they dreamed and schemed of investing in a new business, mead grew from an annual Viking party to a full-fledged business, seeking to show the world that the oldest alcoholic beverage in history is still relevant, and more importantly, still just as delicious.

Abandoning engineering and sustainability jobs to work a lot more for a lot less but have a great time doing it, James and Andrew launched Baltimore City's only meadery in early 2014. Ever since, they've been movin' and brewin'. Charm City and the nectar of the gods are a match made in heaven.
