I feel like I have truly arrived as a beekeeper and a brewer. Merging both crafts, my honey can now be found at San Francisco Brewcraft sanfranciscobrewcraft.com). I'm thinking of dubbing myself, The Brewkeeper. It's a nice portmanteau (my new favorite word) that fits me rather well, don't you think?
I was excited when shopping recently at San Francisco Brewcraft. I got into a conversation with another shopper and one of the owners about bees and honey when the owner said they'd like to sell my honey. I was thrilled, but I tried to play it cool and casually said I'd bring some in next time I came shopping. So a couple of weeks ago, I brought in 9 lbs of honey in three bottles. When it came to negotiating a price, I confessed that really it was an honor to have my honey in this Mecca for SF home brewers, and I'd take anything they would offer me. If you've bought honey from me, then you know that I would normally sell 3 lbs for $36. They sell 3 lbs for $22. You can imagine what they bought the honey from me for. It's not always about the money.
If you happen to find yourself shopping at SF Brewcraft, check the honey supply and let me know.
