“All Businesses are Essential.” As small businesses in upstate New York, we’re all tied together. Not only are the other businesses our customers, they’re our neighbors, friends, and family. As the restaurant landscape has changed dramatically due to COVID-19, we’ve heard many stories from our friends in the industry about how life has changed. Both Sloop and Craft New York are open for business, and we want to help rebuild the industry we’re proud to be a part of.

Craft NY is proud to be distributing Royal Meadery across the entire footprint for 2019!
Gregory Wilhelm founded Royal Meadery in 2014, and today the company is still 100% family owned operated. Gregory used his own beehives for the initial commercial batches and today the honey selection is an integral part of the mead production. In 2017, the Meadery relocated to Delmar and shifted focus to more sessionable carbonated meads.
So, what is mead?
