- Pedernales Brewing, Fredericksburg, Texas
- The Farm Brewery at Broad Run, Broad Run, Va.
- Durty Bull Brewing Co., Durham, N.C.

In addition to featuring made-with-honey beers throughout September, Urban Chestnut Brewing
Co. will host an event sept. 19 at its Grove Brewery. The event will include honey beer tastings, an educational presentation about honey and honey bees, and tastings of varietal honeys from around the United States.
“We’re thrilled that these great breweries are recognizing the importance of honey and honey bees to creating some exceptional beers,” said Catherine Barry, National Honey Board’s director of marketing, in a statement. “The way these breweries use honey in different styles of beer is inspiring, and we’re excited their customers will get to taste these honey beers and learn more about the importance of honey bees.”
