A meadery is coming to Roswell with still and sparkling meads and ciders

A Roswell building that’s already home to a craft beer house and whiskey-focused restaurant and bar is slated to welcome a meadery later this year.

5/4 Meadery will be located in an 1,800 square-foot space at 23B Oak St.

Once open, 5/4 will manufacture and sell a variety of unfiltered, still to sparkling meads and ciders with dry, semi-sweet, or sweet variations—both with and without fruits and spices.

Located in the back of the same building occupied by Tap & Six and The Whiskey Project, the meadery will include both production facilities and a public-facing storefront for tastings and direct-to-consumer sales. 

5/4 will use traditional processes to make its products, using locally sourced ingredients. 

Owner Sean Walcek said the meadery’s name is a nod to the 5/4 time signature in music.

“Believe it or not, first tastings of our experimental dry mead recipe elicited delightful comparisons with creative music innovators,” Walcek said in a prepared statement. “Our hope is to establish ourselves as a premier maker of inventive mead and original fruit fermentations, and along the way, help cultivate a deeper awareness of, appreciation for, and love of meads and ciders in our community.” 

The AJC has reached out to economic development organization Roswell Inc. for a projected opening date.

5/4 will join several other Georgia meaderies, including The Viking Alchemist Meadery in Marietta and Monks Meadery in Athens.
