Honey is pretty awesome, right?

My dad drinks his coffee every morning (every. single. morning.) with honey instead of sugar, in part, because his great uncle was a beekeeper.

A handful of local companies are coming together for a honey festival at a local cidery called Texas Keeper this weekend.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday at the cidery at 12521 Twin Creeks Road, you can explore part of the wide world of honey by tasting local honeys, ciders and meads, trying products from local companies including Spun Ice Cream, Anjore, Confituras, Kokonut Yogurt and Srsly Chocolate, and learning about beekeeping with Two Hives Honey.

Tickets cost $10 and are available at honeyfestival.eventbrite.com.

Of note: Texas Keeper Cider and Two Hives Honey are both grant recipients from the Austin Food & Wine Alliance, whose next round of grants is now open to applicants.
