Nectar Creek Meadery’s Last Day, Saturday

Nectar Creek Meadery has announced they will be closing for good, and they are inviting the public for one last visit.

On Saturday, October 5 they will hold a final celebration at their Philomath taphouse from opening at 11 am through closing time around 10 pm. Throughout the weekend they will also hold a mead sale in the taproom. 

The award-winning meadery announced the closure on October 1. 

Brothers Phillip and Nick Lorenz founded the business in 2012. In 2015, they swept the session mead category at the Mazer Cup which is the world’s largest mead competition. Three of their meads each won a medal. Their  “session mead” is carbonated and contains 10% Alcohol by volume (ABV). Ingredients include raw honey sourced directly from Oregonian beekeepers.  

According to, Nectar Creek opened the 5,000 sq. ft. production facility along with their 1,500- square-foot taproom in January 2018.  

Announcement of the closure came through a Facebook posting. 

With much sadness we are writing to let you all know that Saturday October 5th, 2019 will be the last day our Tap Room will be open and Nectar Creek will be operational.  

We started this company seven years ago with the mission to grow the mead category and have a positive impact on the communities, environment, and people we interact with while operating our business. Although this is not the way we hoped things would end, we can look back and feel nothing but appreciation as we reflect on the endless support we have gotten and the excitement around Nectar Creek. We want to say thank you to all our employees, to all our customers, all of our dedicated fans and all of our business partners. Without their dedicated support we would not be able to look back on 

the past seven years and reflect on them as a success. Thank you to everyone who has put their heart and soul into Nectar Creek and made it possible for us to have achieved so much.  

To celebrate, we will have delicious mead, amazing food and great people in our Tap Room all week. Come by to stock up on mead, find some specialty products and bottles for sale and join us for a culmination of tears and joy ending with a big party on Saturday!  

Lots of love to you all for making what we have been able to accomplish possible!” 

Nectar Creek’s taproom is located at 500 Main Street, Philomath
