Meet the Brewer: Colony Meadery on July 9 in Bethlehem

Learn more about how mead is made, why we love making it, and the history that comes from one of the oldest crated beverages in the world. 

We are proud and excited to be a part of Historic Bethlehem Museums and Sites' "Meet the Brewer" program on July 9 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

This event is perfect for those who have an interest in mead, or history buffs seeking some unique stories and culture.

Ever wonder what mead tasted like in Colonial times? Join Greg La-Belle and Mike Manning from Colony Meadery to learn about the history mead. 

Now highlighting local breweries from the Lehigh Valley, this Meet the Brewer will feature Colony Meadery. Founded in 2013 by craft beer writer and businessman Greg Heller-LaBelle and award winning mead master Mike Manning, the Colony Meadery is based out of a former Mac Truck factory in Allentown with a presence on Main Street Bethlehem at their Moravian Bookstore Tasting Room.

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.

Complimentary tasting and access to the Bethlehem Brewed & Distilled exhibit included! Tickets are $20. Space is limited to 20 guests per program time. Guests must be at least 21 years or older to participate in the tasting, and a valid photo ID must be presented. Alternate entry available.
