What better way to enjoy a couple of hours together, than urban beekeeping and craft beer tasting?
After a sell-out 2019 season and rave reviews from Time Out and The Nudge, The Hiver Experience is back for 2020 and 2021
The two-hour session starts with a short introduction to Bees, Beekeeping, the tools commonly used by Beekeepers and a first glimpse inside the hive. We'll get suited up for a Hive inspection to help Hiver's Beekeeper handling the frames and checking the health of the Hive. After getting up close with the 'Ladies', we'll relax over a tutored beer and food matching session before leaving you to explore the rest of the apiary and answer any questions.
LOCATION: Bee Urban London, Kennington Park, St. Agnes Place, London, SE11 4BE. There is limited parking available in the area but as the site is only a short walk from Kennington Tube station and we'll be tasting beers as part of the experience, we suggest that you make the most of the fantastic transport links that the area has to offer.
DURATION: 2 hours
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 2
