WILLIAMSBURG — Silver Hand Meadery has been named the recipient of the 2023
Williamsburg Business Appreciation Award by the Williamsburg Economic Development Authority.

Mayor Douglas G. Pons presented Silver Hand Meadery the 2023 Business Appreciation Award at the June 8 Williamsburg City Council meeting.

Each year, the Economic Development Authority recognizes a Williamsburg business for its contribution to the betterment of the city, it said in a press announcement. Any person or business is able to nominate a city business for the award.

Criteria used for award consideration include a physical presence in the City of Williamsburg, being in business for at least five years, employing fewer than 100 people, and demonstrating innovation along with excellent customer service and environmental sensitivity.

The EDA discussed the nominations at its May meeting and voted on a recipient.

“Thank you, Mayor Ponds, the Williamsburg EDA and the City of Williamsburg for this award,” Silver Hand Meadery posted on its official Facebook page. “It means so much to all of us here at Silver Hand. We’ve come a long way since we opened our doors in the fall of 2015 and so much of the growth is due to your continued support. Cheers to our entire team on this tremendous accomplishment.”

Prior to making mead, Silver Hand Meadery owner and founder, Glenn Lavender spent 12 years touring with his band throughout North America. It was during this time that he began his education on the ancient drink. In 2012, he and his wife and meadery co-founder, Sherri, moved from Ontario, Canada, to Williamsburg where Glenn took a job with a local church, all while still making batches of mead.

After participating in the Mazer Cup, the largest mead competition in the world, the Lavenders took home two awards and made the decision to open their own meadery.

After getting a special use permit approved by the Williamsburg City Council in June of 2015, Silver Hand Meadery officially opened its doors on Monticello Avenue that November. The meadery continues to offer new and expanded tastings and educational opportunities on mead, honey, and honeybees.
