York is excited to announce local mead company Honeygirl Meadery is moving its Downtown Durham operations to the American Tobacco Campus in 2024. With this move, the Meadery will be doubling in size and will be operating under the name of its ownership group, Ment Beverage Co. The ownership group is led by Robby Battle, an industry veteran.
Construction for a 3,000 SF tasting room and production space is underway at 300 Blackwell Street (the Noell Building). This location will include two bars and both indoor and outdoor seating. Ment Beverage Co. will offer new beverage options in addition to mead, such as cider, local beer, distilled spirits, and nonalcoholic sparkling beverages.
The space will become a part of the social district, known as the Bullpen. This will allow customers to walk along the grounds and take their drinks with them. The space is expected to open in early 2024.
York broker Robert Hoyt represented Ment Beverage in the transaction.
