What You’ll Do

Bees have something of a mixed reputation, known in equal parts for their searing stingers and rich honey. But urban beekeeper Bob Redmond would like you to focus on the sweeter side of their nature in a 75-minute honey-tasting session held inside a present-day apothecary. During your stay, you will sample at least six types of honey harvested from Seattle neighborhoods and learn the history behind the sweet, sticky foodstuff.

  • History of Honey
    Seventh-year urban beekeeper Bob Redmond shares how bees make honey, what makes honeys taste different from one another, and which foods pair best with it.

  • Hands-On Learning
    Guests will chew raw propolis—another product of bees—and see frames of honeycomb from the hive.

  • Sample Honey and Take It Home
    After sampling at least six locally made honeys, guests will go home with a 5-ounce jar of it.
