Allentown’s Colony Meadery is quickly adding more awards to its growing collection.

Colony Meadery took home five medals at the Mazer Cup, a prestigious international competition held Friday and Saturday in Colorado. It was the only meadery to win that many at the competition.

Here’s the rundown on the varieties and the medals Colony Meadery won:

• Pikwant Field strawberry-kiwi mead – Bronze in dry melomel (fruit/vegetable mead)

• Frozen Digits blueberry mead – Bronze in semi-sweet melomel

• A Good Sarsaparilla – Silver in semi-sweet session mead

• Beso Exotico – Silver in semi-sweet dessert mead

• Mo-Me-Doh – Gold in open category semi-sweet mead

Mead, an ancient alcoholic drink made from honey, is exploding in popularity. According to the American Mead Makers Association, there was a 128 percent increase in mead production in 2014.

“We knew we were making a top-notch beverage,” says Mike Manning, co-founder and mead maker for The Colony Meadery in a prepared statement. “But Mazer Cup is the highest competition in our industry, and we’re incredibly honored to see that our peers agree we belong among the best in the world.”
