Maine Mead Works has opened its first satellite tasting room. The new spot is located at 8 Western Ave. in Kennebunk, next door to Federal Jack’s.

The tasting room opened July 1, according to Ben Alexander, the owner of Maine Mead Works, which has a meadery and tasting room at 51 Washington Ave. in Portland.

“We’re thrilled to have another direct to consumer outlet for what we’re doing. I think that’s been a key to our success, just getting people in the door to try something different.”

Maine Mead Works was founded in 2007.
