New type of micro-brewer opens in Allentown

Allentown's latest micro-brewer, which held its grand opening on Tuesday, is responsible for producing something quiet different than most other ales, which is the product normally brewed at all other Lehigh Valley micro-brewers.

The Bridgeworks Enterprise Center is also unique, because the former Mack Truck plant in Allentown, is now run by the Allentown Economic Development Corporation, and houses small businesses and developing start-ups.

The Colony Meadery, which opened at the Bridgeworks Enterprise Center in Allentown, makes mead. Mead is better known as honey wine, because it made by fermenting honey and water. Combining it with hops or yeast, along with other fruits and spices is what makes this product a special type of ale.

The Colony makes 12 different flavors of mead, which is available in its tasting room on location. The preferred drink of Ancient Greeks and Vikings is also available through out Allentown and Bethlehem at select venues: both locations of Fegley Brew Works (Allentown and Bethlehem), the Strange Brew Tavern in Allentown, and at the Broadway Social in Bethlehem.

Some of the selections available include Mo-Me-Doh, the Colony Meadery's equivalent of a mojito, made with lime and mint. Fred and Ginger, which is mead flavored with ginger. The Woofiedog, a hoped mead; Pikwant Field, a strawberry-kiwi mead; and Straight-no-chaser, which a base semi-sweet mead.
