The Bees Are Back In Town
May 14, 2019 2:04 pm
After what feels like ages, Minnesota’s vegetation is blooming, and it smells oh so good. Pollinators are out to support all life to grow and protect our valuable ecosystems. In honor of our bee, bird, butterfly, bats and beetle friends, we have lots of exciting things planned for the summer. We’re kicking off things this week with a brand-new beer release. Read more below and learn all about it:
Biere de Miel Belgian Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 8% | 28 IBU, available in bottles and on tap
Introducing the newest addition to our Barrels of Life series: Biere de Miel. This tasty brew is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale brewed with Minnesota’s own Bone Lake Meadows Apiary honey and aged in oak barrels. With notes of peach and apricot, this beer is sure to go well with well-deserved spring sunshine.
Pollinator week at FINNEGANS Market
If what you’ve read doesn’t sound sweet enough, then just wait until you hear about Pollinator Market. The week of July 17–23 marks National Pollinator Week, so on June 19 from 3–7 p.m., we’ll be celebrating with bee-themed activities, insight from experts and three delicious honey beers (Biere de Miel, Silent Lake, and Einer). Make sure to get a jar of the honey used in Biere de Miel from Bone Meadows Lake Apiary, one of the market vendors! More details to come in the next few weeks so stay tuned.

And speaking of nice weather, the FINNEGANS Market is starting up on Wednesday, May 29, and will be happening every Wednesday from 3–7 p.m. through the end of September in the brewery and taproom courtyard. The market includes both produce and craft and is brought to you by the FINNEGANS Community Fund for the Elliot Park, East Town, and greater downtown neighbors. Join us on the patio for games, eats, locally made wares and locally grown produce. The goal is to be a self-sustaining market that builds community and increases access to nutritious food for all in Elliot Park and for our vendors to reach new consumers to support their businesses.
