What do honey and beer have in common? Both are made right here in Downers Grove! In this special one day excursion, participants will learn all about honey, brewing, and how the two come together to produce some delicious beer. Participants will begin the day at Alter Brewing Company and travel to Lyman Woods where they will learn from experts about the rich history of local beekeeping and the science behind how honey is made. At Lyman Woods, they will suit up and visit the apiary, harvest honey from the hives, and take part in a honey tasting. The experience will then journey to Alter Brewing Company where the head brewer will give a tour of the facility and explain the basics of brewing. After lunch from the Roaming Hog, the day will conclude with an FAQ session with the beekeepers and brewers and pre-release pint of the limited Lyman Honey Wheat Ale made by Alter Brewing Company with Lyman Woods honey.
