Tasting Time

There’s more to Williamsburg, Virginia, than history and theme parks. The city’s Tasting Trail (www.visitwilliamsburg.com/trip-idea/williamsburg-tasting-trail) of award-winning wine, microbrewed beer, ancient mead and distilled spirits has three new stops worth a sip, all opened in 2016. Copper Fox Distillery Williamsburg (www.copperfox.biz) is home to craft whiskies and gin made from locally grown barley. The Virginia Beer Co. (www.virginiabeerco.com) offers a seasonal rotation of craft beers served in a family-friendly taproom and pet-friendly beer garden. Or, explore the ancient beverage of mead, which is created by fermenting the sugars found in honey, at Silver Hand Meadery (silverhandmeadery.com).
