Description

Hiver is the brainchild of former Meantime Brewery employee Hannah Rhodes, inspired to create a quality beer using honey, following the discovery of the vast array of honey produced in London. The number of bee hives in London has soared in recent years following news that global bee numbers were in rapid decline. Unpasteurised, more textured and flavourful honey is used in the brewing process, contributing to the taste and body of the beer. Since its inception in 2012, Hiver has gone from strength to strength with listings at M&S, Ocado, a number of independent merchants and pubs.

The unique beer and bee experience takes place at the Bee Urban Beekeepers Lodge in Kennington, where Hiver sponsors hives. As part of the experience guests will discover more about bees, their ecological value and the role of honey in the brewing process. Revel in the opportunity to don a beekeeping suit and get up close and undertake a full hive inspection. Following the bee encounter, guests are fully equipped to appreciate the fruits of the colony's labour by sampling Hiver's range of craft beers. Enjoy this memorable foray into both urban beekeeping and Hiver's honey beer and leave with a newfound appreciation for bees, beer and British honey.
