Wilk Apiary Honey Harvest and Extracting Event At Big Alice Brewery

  • Big Alice Brewery 8-08 43rd Road Long Island City, NY, 11101 United States (map)

Wilk Apiary is saving Wednesday during NYC Honey Week to harvest and extract honey from some of our apiaries in Long Island City, Queens, New York. We are schlepping our honey extractor to LIC where Big Alice Brewery is giving us the space to demonstrate how to extract honey from frames of honey comb all made by our honeybees in the area. To celebrate the event they are also brewing a special micro-batch of beer for the occasion. This beer is using some of our local honey from Queens harvested this year. We will also have a special honey infused with hops to taste along with freshly extracted from the comb honey.

Email if you would like to help with the harvesting that afternoon. Must be able to lift and carry up to 50#. We might be selling fresh harvested unstrained bottle yourself honey if harvest is good enough and time allows. Must be 21 and older to taste and drink/purchase beer and have ID to prove so.
