Urban Beekeeping and Hiver Honey Beer Tasting
Experience the ultimate buzz with this unique glimpse into the world of urban beekeeping and the chance to sample some award-winning beer from Hiver Beers. Start your experience with a quick introduction to urban beekeeping, before suiting up in protective clothing and boots, ready to get stuck in. Join the Hivers beekeeper for a hive inspection and lend a helping hand in handling the frames and checking the health of the hive. Afterwards, head back inside and relax, while enjoying a tutored honey beer and food matching session with an expert. Boasting a deliciously smooth texture, Hiver Beers have the potential to convert even the most infrequent beer drinkers!
- Catch a glimpse into the world of urban beekeeping
- Suit up and help the beekeeper with a hive inspection
- Sit down to a tutored beer and food matching session with an expert
- Availability Description
This experience is available most weekends from mid-April until mid-September, subject to availability.
- Participant Guidelines
Guests over 18 are welcome. Beer contains gluten so the tasting is not suitable for coeliac. There is a small risk of getting stung during the hive inspection, but whilst this is very rare, we do not recommend the experience if you are allergic to bees.
In the case of really wet or cold weather, we'll focus on inspecting the exhibition hive, working with the Beekeeping tools to build frames and working with the bi-products of the hive.
This experience lasts two hours.
- Numbers on the Day
Join a group of up to 12 participants.
- Dress Code
The venue will provide a beekeeping suit (including face protection) along with gloves on the day, but please wear sensible flat shoes and bring socks. Feet should be fully covered.
