Texas Beeworks founder, Erika Thompson, delivers an informative and hands-on presentation into the mind-boggling world of the honeybee hive. Great for anyone simply fascinated by bees -- and a must-do for folks interested in becoming beekeepers.
We'll also enjoy a honey tasting, marveling in the vast differences in color, consistency, and taste based on the beehive's diet.
Plus, enjoy some delicious snacks from Austin's Wella Bar, which donates part of their sales to bee research. Oh, and we'll have some honey-based beers!
