MIDLOTHIAN, Va. (WRIC) — A new meadery is in the works for Alverser Plaza in Chesterfield County, between Old Buckingham and Huguenot roads.

A meadery, makes and sells mead — an alcoholic beverage fermented with honey, yeast and water.

According to county documents, a conditional use permit was requested to permit craft brewery, craft distillery and craft winery uses in a Corporate Office District. The request was filed by Alverser LLC.

In addition to one of Tazza Kitchen’s three Virginia locations, the 2.02-acre property along the west line of Alverser Drive is also the site of Cold Stone Creamery and Schwarzschild Jewelers. According to the request, the meadery will be located within a portion of the existing commercial shopping center on the property.

Public records show that Virginia-based Funktastic Meads filed commercial applications for plumbing, electrical and mechanical work at 1212 Alverser Plaza on Thursday.

The Chesterfield County Planning Commission is set to hold a public hearing on this request during its Tuesday meeting. Staff has recommended approval.

If approved, proffered conditions will limit the public hours of operation of the meadery to 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
