Would You Try Honey Beer?

Exciting! Brew Day is Here!

Were super excited to let you know that The Durham Brewery are currently in the process of brewing a Sumerian Beer made with Humble Bee Honey!

Humble Bee Honey about to go in!

The time had come where the work of millions of Humble Honey Bees was to be added to the beer brew!

Were thrilled to be involved with the brewing of this special 30th anniversary beer. What an epic day it turned out to be.

Although the weather outside was some sort of torrential, inside the brew house it was pouring down with liquid gold - in the form of lovely local honey.

60lbs of Summer Honey poured, or should we say dropped into a giant 2000l stainless brewing vessel!

What this image doesn't show is wills face! We will spare you that!

In better news the aroma in the brew house was amazing, the smell of honey, cardamom and other spices coming from the brew was incredible.

Other ingredients also needed to be added, take a look at the scale of the operation. All this stainless equipment was impressive.

And now we wait... In the meantime be sure to pop along to the shop and show your support.

Dashing through the rain, I managed to snap a photo of the shop front! Looks tropical and inviting even in a storm.

We then checked out the shop where all the final product goes to lovely local customers.

What a neat place to go and find local produce and grab a beer.
