While Good Mead's economy was originally based on the fishing of knucklehead trout from nearby Redwaters lake, by the mid—14th century DR they received little profit from their catches. As a whole, the town focused on brewing their famous mead, that they sold in the merchant town of Bryn Shander.
For many years, Good Mead and Dougan's Hole enjoyed a healthy rivalry with each other.
- Mead Hall: This large building, in the center of town, was the heart of its brewing-based economy.
- Shrine to Tempus: This worn-down and aged shrine was run by the young battleguard, Brother Sharamod during the mid—14th century, who hoped to expand it to a proper temple.
