2020 Honey Beer Summits

Honey Beer Summits

Check back next year for our 2021 Summits!

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

Technical Sessions

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.

Honey 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.

Apiary Visit

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.

Brewery Tours

We’ve partnered with some amazing Austin and St. Louis breweries 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 25 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.
