Schramm's Mead Shipping Policy

Policy for Mead Pickup


Mead bottles are available for pick up only by you or your designated Trustee and will be held for up to 30 days.  Orders not picked up within 30 days will be subject to a 20% restocking fee.  You and your Trustee must be 21 years of age or older.  Trustees must be registered users at store.schrammsmead.com.  Trustees must be specified in the Contact Information section of My Account before your order is placed.  Adding or changing a Trustee after an order is placed will result in a $5 change of Trustee fee.


Shipping Policy 

States laws controlling the shipment of mead & wine in the United States vary widely, so we have created this section to help you determine the restrictions and limitations that you may face in your state — in addition to our own policies and licensing as we grow our direct shipping program. 

We are currently able to ship mead to the following locations: Michigan, California, Florida, Alaska, Minnesota, Ohio, Colorado, and Washington D.C.  We cannot ship mead to P.O. boxes.

Although we plan on adding more states in the coming months, there are certain states (and countries) that we cannot ship to — either because the jurisdiction in question doesn’t allow wine shipments from a licensed Michigan winery or because onerous licensing/registration fees will prevent us from doing so.  If your state is not on the list above but you would like our mead shipped to your home or business, please let us know: info@schrammsmead.com.  We will do our best to make it happen (and if we can’t, we’ll let you know which regulatory agency in your state to call to voice your displeasure). 

By placing an order, you authorize us to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to your selected destination.  You must be 21 years of age or older to buy wine. By placing your order with this meadery you certify under penalty of perjury that you and the recipient are at least 21 years of age. When the mead is delivered, the recipient will be required to show identification proving that he or she is at least 21 years of age and sign for the package.

Packaging & Shipping Information

To launch, we have chosen high-performance packaging materials and methods which will ensure the highest quality product possible reaches your door — and we’ve invested mightily in materials and software to help us maintain compliance with these quality standards during product transit.  To achieve these lofty goals, we are fulfilling every order in-house (not through a third-party fulfillment house).  We will be tracking mead shipments throughout the entire process using state-of-the-art data integrations and technology.  You may be asked to participate in an internal audit of these processes, and we thank you in advance for your assistance in helping us maintain our very high standards.  

We currently ship only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This helps our mead avoid weekends in locations without temperature control. Orders taken Thursday through Sunday will be shipped the following week. We will only ship our product via ground when the weather permits (exterior temperatures in transit and at destination between 30 degrees and 70 degrees Fahrenheit).  We will not ship product via ground in cases of extreme weather.  In cases where ground shipping is not acceptable, we will offer expedited shipping and handling options if they are acceptable to our meadmaking team. 

Please be sure to inspect your shipment ASAP after delivery — and contact us immediately at that time if there are any issues.  After delivery, we recommend you place your mead into storage as quickly as possible — as close to a stable 55 degrees F and 50-80% humidity as you can manage.  Schramm’s Mead assumes no liability for improper storage or secondary transport of our mead.

Please note:

All prices are listed in US dollars. All orders will include delivery charges and applicable sales tax.
You will receive an email confirming that your order was submitted. If your order is urgent, please call the meadery directly to assure proper and timely handling: 248-439-5000.  Please provide a valid and complete email address in your account & on your order. 

Order Tracking 

Please contact info@schrammsmead.com for order tracking information if it hasn’t already been emailed to you.

Shipping & Handling Charges 

Shipping & Handling charges are noted during the check-out process. 

Multiple Delivery Attempts 

If no one is available to receive the package and it can not be left with someone who is at least 21 years of age, two subsequent attempts to deliver will be made.  We will do everything in our power to assist the carriers in making a successful delivery on the first attempt.  However, if the carrier is unable to complete the delivery after three attempts, their policy is to send the shipment back to us or to destroy it — in which case, a refund cannot be issued to you.  In order to ensure the highest quality product available reaches you, we do not allow UPS to redirect or hold shipments for pickup.  Please ensure that a recipient 21+ years of age will be available at the "Ship-To" address on the "Anticipated Delivery Date" indicated at the time of order.       

Mead orders require an adult signature, so whenever possible, we strongly encourage you to use a commercial business address to assure the fastest delivery time (usually during the work day, which is much better for the mead and more convenient on your end, as well).  

Benefits of Using a Commercial Delivery Address

We strongly encourage you to provide us, whenever possible, with a commercial address for the delivery of your order.  Mead orders require the signature of an adult.
