Join us for the sweetest part of beekeeping! Our friends from BeeWeaverApiaries will be onsite at Vista hosting a hands-on honey harvest experience where you will learn how to remove honey supers from hives, extract, strain, and bottle the liquid gold.

Our extracting course is small group (20 students max with 2 expert beekeepers) includes approximately two hours of extracting, and every student will go home with fresh honey they helped extract, bottle, and label. YUM! Get ready to get sticky!

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased on the Vista Brewing website. Your ticket also includes a free pint of our collaboration beer, DreamWeaver, a braggot made with 183 pounds of BeeWeaver’s Texas wildflower honey! Stop in to Vista early for lunch, or stay after class for dinner from our farm-fresh menu.

The experience will be held from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. and will cover the following topics:
* Short intro on when, what and how to harvest honey
* Walk back to the Vista bee yard, where we will suit up and check on Vista’s 16 hives and pull frames full of honey
* We’ll move into the Brewery where things will get a bit sticky as we uncap and extract the honey by spinning
* We’ll cover how to store your honey properly, packaging options, as well as how to make use of all that wonderful beeswax

This is a great course for beekeepers and non-beekeepers. Protective gear (hat/veil) is recommended for pulling the honey from the hives. BeeWeaver does offer loaner gear if you do not own your own.
