Stumbled upon The Colony accidentally when heading to Hijinx Brewing Co next door. Huge selection of meads. Tried the ‘First Timer Flight’ which features their flagship meads. Everything was delicious. Cool vibe and friendly staff too. Thanks, John!

You've had mead (honey wine) and found it too sweet or lacking complexity, try a flight of 5 meads here and prepared to be surprised. Try the Habanero mango, Apple pie, Ginger lime for a varied and refreshing alcoholic beverage. The Meadery is located in...More
