Honey Fest returns on Saturday to celebrate one of the most magical foods

Honey is a magical elixir. It’s the only food that doesn’t rot. It’s antibacterial. It’s sweet and thick and useful at every meal.

The folks at Texas Keeper and Two Hives Honey know how special honey is. For the second year, they are teaming up to host a Honey Festival, which will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, at the cidery at 12521 Twin Creeks Road.

The event will double as a release for Texas Keeper’s new Honey Thief Cyser, a bubbly fermented beverage made with apples and honey. Guests will also get to try meads from all over the world as well as other local products made with honey and bee-friendly ingredients.

Tara Chapman of Two Hives Honey will also give tours of a hive on the property so you can learn about beekeeping. Ten percent of ticket purchases go to the Houston Beekeeping Association to support the rebuilding efforts of beekeepers affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Tickets cost $10 (kids are free) and you can buy them here.
