Bellingham's Newest Meadery in Over a Decade, Artivem Mead Co.

If you want high-quality craft beer, cider, or wine, you don’t have to look any further then Bellingham, WA. This scenic town is home to many excellent craft beverage producers. However, Bellingham does come up short in one category: meaderies. In over ten years, only one meadery has called this beautiful town, “home.” But that is about to change. Artivem Mead Co. is becoming Bellingham’s newest meadery.

Who Is Artivem Mead Co.?

The co-founders and owners of Artivem Mead Co. are bringing their mead making expertise to Washington to share with Bellingham. Carlos Bassetti and Micah Mailand are the creative minds behind what is soon to be Bellingham’s newest meadery and gathering place for lovers of delicious drinks. They bring with them a wealth of knowledge, experience, and love of community to fit right in with the Bellingham craft beverage community.

What Is Their Experience?

Artivem is only a startup meadery, but this co-founder duo brings a lot to the table. Carlos has been internationally recognized for his mead with over 30 awards. Micah has created dozens of digital tools and systems to reduce workload and increase efficiency for businesses in several industries. Their combined efforts, as head mead maker and business manager, helped their former employer* garner the title of a “Ratebeer Top 100” brewer (out of 23,000+ brewers worldwide) for three consecutive years: 2015, 2016, 2017.

What Is Their Passion?

Though they love mead, their shared passion is people. Whether it is creating a dynamic workplace that values employees or providing a unique, welcoming experience to guests, they understand that a business can’t exist without people. A strong supportive community is the best way to help people grow together and as individuals.

Artivem Mead Co. is excited to share life with and inspire the taste buds of the Bellingham community. Artivem is coming Spring 2020 to the newly renovated Granary Building. Learn more or follow our progress by visiting or following us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
