1-30-24 We’re off to Arkansas tonight (where it’s warmer) to visit with Tony Fry, owner and meadmaker at Arkansas Meadery in Alexander, Arkansas.

Since 2001, Tony Fry has been deeply passionate about the art of fermenting, starting with beer and wine and eventually delving into the world of mead. As a founding member of CAF (“Central Arkansas Fermenters”) in 2003, a prominent homebrew club based in Little Rock, Arkansas, he played a pivotal role in fostering a vibrant community of enthusiasts, making it one of the largest homebrew clubs in the United States.
In 2014, Tony ventured into beekeeping, which further sparked his interest in mead-making. This journey led him to acquire a small farm in Saline County, Arkansas, in 2015. Serendipitously, that same year, the dry county lifted restrictions on alcohol sales, providing the perfect opportunity for Tony to explore his passion for mead-making and the possibility of opening a Meadery.
Tony views this sequence of events as a divine sign, inspiring him to establish Arkansas’s first Meadery, opening the meadery in September of 2021. Today, he is thrilled to share his creations with the world, inviting everyone to join the journey.
