Honey Bee

Honey Bee - 4.4%

At Brakspear we love bees so we thought it would be a great idea to brew a honey beer. Honey Bee is not a typical honey beer, the beer will be brewed using honey from our pub Orwells in Shiplake, who have their own beehives. We are also excited to announce, Brakspear will donate 20p for every pint sold to Friend of the Earth. Available in April and May 2015 from the Bell St Brewery.

A light golden coloured beer with delicately subtle honey notes and a bracing delivery of hops on the follow through.

    Other details:

    Hoeny Bee is brewed at the Bell Street Brewery which sits within the Bull on Bell Street public house 57-59 Bell Street at the back of the building. In January 2013 Brakspear gave 57 – 59 Bell Street a major makeover and on 29th March 2013, the Bull on Bell Street was revealed alongside the Bell Street Brewery. After a few trial runs, the Bull on Bell Street began selling the first brew on the 11th May 2013 and Brakspear beers were back being brewed in Henley after the brewery on New Street closed in 2002 and moved to the Wychwood Brewery in Witney, West Oxfordshire.

    The Bell Street Brewery is situated only 3 doors up from where William Henry Brakspear originally started brewing Brakspear in the garden of 65 Bell Street back in 1711 before the brewery moved to New Street in 1812. The Bell Street Brewery building itself is one of Henley’s oldest, dating back some 700 years, and we like to think it has a modern look whilst making the most of its character.
