Rooftop Honey Harvest at the Brown Palace

It’s that time of year again! Each fall, The Brown Palace harvests the hotel’s rooftop bee colonies for the season, providing honey that will be used for a number of unique products and ways for hotel guests to enjoy. The creations are signature offerings ranging from skincare products to spa treatments, culinary dishes and even happy hour cocktails. The honey harvested this year is already being put to good use! Here are a few of our favorite photos taken throughout the process and one of our favorite ways to enjoy the fruits of our labor – a specialty honey cocktail!

*A portion of the proceeds from all Bee Royalty signature products are donated to the Denver Beekeeper Association – helping support bee awareness & sustainability.
