WILLIAMSBURG-Silver Hand Meadery has outgrown its current location on Monticello Avenue near Midtown Row and will move a portion of its operations to a new location this fall.
Glenn Lavender, owner of Silver Hand Meadery, recently announced plans to open a second location in Toano for use as a production facility.
Silver Hand Meadery opened roughly five years ago in an old medical office building. Through the years, the meadery expanded, eventually taking over the entire building.
“We are at the point now where the whole building is not enough for us,” Lavender said.
Silver Hand Meadery will lease a 4,000 square foot warehouse space in Toano that it plans to renovate and utilize as a production facility. The space will be used for labeling products, jarring honeys, and making some of the company’s meads including meads for wholesale and the meadery’s Insider Club. Currently, there is a wait list for the Insider Club, but moving to the new facility will enable more people to join.
“This is going to be great for us,” Lavender said.
