“It’s been such a crazy journey getting this far, and we are so thankful for everyone that has been a part of making it happen, and the amazing team that will be running the taproom,” the pair said online when they announced the grand opening in July.
The couple has been making mead out of their home since 2014.
“I really fell down the rabbit hole and got obsessed with the fermentation science and the art of mead making and just started making tons and tons of batches and trying to perfect everything,” Joe Leigh said on the Florida Foodie podcast.
The interior of the taproom was designed by Ginger Leigh, who is also a professional artist working under the name Synthestruct.
