Founded in 2010, Golden Coast Mead has always been about protecting the environment it relies on to produce its honey-based meads. Now, Golden Coast is breaking into the $4.4 billion hard seltzer market with its Hard Honey Seltzer. The end of 2020 saw the first release of this new product, which is already on the shelves of more than a dozen locations across Southern California.
