New Day Meadery is a true family owned and operated entrepreneurial endeavor. The husband and wife team of Brett Canaday and Tia Agnew work tirelessly as the proprietors of New Day Meadery. Brett, your Merry Meadmaker, takes great care in crafting our meads while Tia orchestrates all marketing and operational matters. They, along with a dedicated group of family and friends, form the main labor force when it comes to crafting New Day Meadery fine honey wine.

Brett and Tia started making mead in 2001 when they moved to Brett’s family farm and started keeping bees. Their mead making began as an enjoyable pastime, a way to combine their love of bee keeping, gardening and good food during their off-time. While pursuing their careers outside of mead making, they strove to identify a business they could pursue that would allow them to remain in Indiana and tap into both their professional talents and passion for local food.

After several years of research, business planning and perfecting their mead formulas, Brett and Tia officially organized New Day Meadery in January of 2004. True to form for a new winery, they spent the next two years making mead and preparing for their public opening in May 2006. They have hit the ground running since opening day – and are enjoying every minute of it!

Brett and Tia realize that their strict adherence to using fresh, locally grown fruit and honey forces them to keep their quantities small. But it’s that same reverence for quality over quantity that makes their mead so highly prized– they handcraft all limited edition batches, from the fruit and honey selection to finished product, and it is this level of care that ensures the highest quality mead for your drinking pleasure.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
