Not Your Run of the Hive Beverages


At the Colony, we're always seeking to push the boundaries of taste by producing the boldest and most innovative meads in the world. Using modern techniques, precise fermentation controls, and the most refined elbow grease, we produce honey-based alcoholic beverages that surprise the palate and amaze the judges. Our meads burst with flavor and glide down the throat with sophisticated, layered profiles and unparalleled smoothness. 

The best way to experience our mead is in one of our two tasting rooms. No reservations are necessary to come in and taste or purchase bottles.

Our satellite location on Main Street in Historic Bethlehem is inside the Moravian Book Shop, the oldest continuously operating book store in the world. Come and taste some mead or locally roasted coffee (with or without mead in it!)
