Susan and Bob Ruud opened Prairie Rose Meadery in 2015.
“We love mead, and as it has started growing as a segment of the alcohol industry and as we make great mead, we decided to turn our hobby into a business,” said the Ruuds.
What They Serve!
Prairie Rose Meadery uses all North Dakota honey to make a wonderful semi-sweet mead. To make each product unique, they ferment the honey and add a small amount of fruit or spice.

1. Made from Marquette grapes, the Marquess provides flavors of chocolate and leather. Combined with the ND clover honey, this is a perfect slightly sweet drink.
2. Prairie Rose’s Traditional Mead is wholly honey. The slight spice and honey blend give you a traditional sip.
3. Combining a cocktail classic with mead, the Honey Mojito is refreshing. Chill this to enjoy on a warm day!
