Honey Beer Summit

Check back for more dates in 2023!

The National Honey Board’s Honey Beer Summit is an exclusive event gathering a small group of craft brewers for an intensive 2-day seminar on honey, an all-natural sweetener that offers a variety of functional and flavor benefits when used in beer.

Be sure to check back in 2023 for dates and locations.

Honey Beer Summit Agenda


Spend time with brewers from across the country and share ideas and your beers. Past events have spurred some amazing collaborations between attendees.

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 3,000 varietals of honey, each with a unique flavor, aroma and color? Although we won’t taste all 3,000, we’ll sample honeys from around the world.

Brewery Tours

We’ll tour local breweries throughout the summit. We’ll be touring their brewery as well as sampling beers made with honey specifically for the event!

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.

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.
