Breweries Celebrating National Honey Month
Firestone, Colorado — The National Honey Board is celebrating National Month in September with the
help of breweries across the United States. National Honey Month is an annual celebration of honey,
honey bees and this amazing ingredient that plays an essential role in brewing.
This year, the National Honey Board is working with four breweries to promote honey and the importance
of honey bees to our ecosystem. Each participating brewery will be featuring a made with honey beer
throughout September.

In addition to featuring made with honey beers throughout September, Urban Chestnut Brewing
Company will host an event at their Grove Brewery on September 19, 2017. The event will include honey
beer tastings, an educational presentation on honey and honey bees, and tastings of varietal honeys
from around the United States.
“We’re thrilled that these great breweries are recognizing the importance of honey and honey bees to
creating some exceptional beers,” Catherine Barry, National Honey Board’s director of marketing, says.
“The way these breweries use honey in different styles of beer is inspiring, and we’re excited their
customers will get to taste these honey beers and learn more about the importance of honey bees.”
The National Honey Board (NHB) is an industry-funded agriculture promotion group that works to
educate consumers about the benefits and uses for honey and honey products through research,
marketing and promotional programs. The Board’s work, funded by an assessment on domestic and
imported honey, is designed to increase the awareness and usage of honey by consumers, the
foodservice industry and food manufacturers. The ten-member-Board, appointed by the U.S. Secretary
of Agriculture, represents producers (beekeepers), packers, importers and a marketing cooperative.
