What's All the Buzz About Honey Beers?
Did you know there are more than 16,000 different kinds of bees? These often yellow-and-black insects have been on this planet for 30 million years and can be found on every continent on Earth except Antarctica. Moreover, bees are integral to life. More than seventy-five percent of the crops in the world depend on pollination. Which we all know: Bees love to pollinate. All in all, bees are pretty much one of the most important living things on the planet. So much so that Albert Einstein once said, "If the bee disappears from the surface of the Earth, man would have no more than four years left to live." 🤯
In addition to all these life-sustaining acts, bees also make honey. This sweet, natural product has trickled its way into craft beer. Beyond that, honey is the base for its own fermented beverage called mead.
On this episode of the Drinking Socially podcast, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza drink the once mysterious but now extremely popular elixir that is mead while unlocking the "Hey Honey" badge. They'll start off with an orange blossom honey mead with blueberries and lemon called New Wave Lemonade from B. Nektar Meadery. In Harrison's own words, "I could not BEE more excited."
