CATEGORIES: Beer   Feature  

What’s the buzz about beer and honey? This wonder ingredient brightens everything from flavor to finish, and can even give you a taste of a hive’s favorite flower.

Tyranena Three Beaches Honey Blonde

Orange blossom honey sourced from local Kallas Honey Farm—whose hives stand in an orange grove—neatly accentuates this beer’s gentle, citrusy Cascade hopping with a subtle dose of floral orange notes.

Bison Honey Basil Ale

If there were ever a beer made for pizza, this is it. Honey contributes a smooth, round mouthfeel, brushes of sweetness and a tidy, crisp finish to keep the beer’s robust dose of basil in check.

Jackie O’s Baklava Braggot

Brewer Brad Clark combined far-out ingredients like local walnuts, lemon zest, cinnamon, his Belgian yeast strain and 120 pounds of buckwheat honey in this sipping braggot designed to taste like the Middle Eastern pastry.

Back Forty Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale

Brewer Jamie Ray adds Alabama wildflower honey to the boil late, giving this nutty English-style brown ale (and 2010 GABF silver medalist) a touch of earthy aromatics and a hint of sweetness.

Cucapá Honey

Local wildflower honey harvested from the fields of the Mexicali valley snakes through this amber ale’s gentle aroma and adds a thread of sweetness to an underlying barley malt backbone.

Birra Amiata Marruca

This Tuscan brew’s named after the honey inside—a variety from bees feeding on marruca, a spiny shrub, which imparts herbal scents and caramel sweetness into this light-bodied ale.
