The latest addition to the Williamsburg area’s burgeoning craft alcoholic beverages scene is taking a page out of an old playbook — medieval, to be precise.
The Silver Hand Meadery is seeking approval from the City of Williamsburg to open at a location on Monticello Avenue near the Monticello Shopping Center.
The brainchild of Williamsburg resident Glenn Lavender, the Silver Hand Meadery would include both manufacturing and retail related to the production of mead, an alcoholic beverage derived from fermenting honey.
Lavender has requested a special use permit from the city to operate the meadery. A special use permit allows a business not specifically allowed to open in a zoning district to operate.
The request must go through the Williamsburg City Council for final approval.
