The Honey Beer Summit
May 22-24, 2017
The National Honey Board’s Honey Beer Summit is an exclusive, all expenses paid event that gathers a small group of the most innovative craft brewers in the industry for an intensive seminar on honey, an all-natural sweetener that offers a variety of functional and flavor benefits when used in beer.
Honey Beer Summit Agenda
The National Honey Board has conducted significant, independent research on how honey impacts beer when added at various parts of the brewing process. This research will be presented, complete with sensory panel analysis and tastings.
Did you know there are more than 300 varietals of honey, each with a unique flavor, aroma and color? Although we won’t taste all 300, we’ll sample honeys from around the world, as well as some of our favorite honey beers.
The sound of 60,000+ bees working is something you’ll never forget. Our attendees suit up and visit an apiary, where they are given an up-close and personal peek inside an active hive.
We’ve partnered with Jester King Brewery, Blue Owl Brewing and Lazarus Brewing for this event. We’ll be touring their breweries as well as sampling beers made with honey specifically for the event!
Spend two days with 15 of the best brewers in the United States. Share ideas and your beers. Past Honey Beer Summits have spurred some amazing collaborations between attendees.
Honey Beer Tastings
We’ve sourced and purchased some of the best honey beers in the world. We’ll conduct multiple tastings based on varietal and beer styles.
