The Buzz on Rooftop Honey Wheat Beer

This should be a pretty sweet treat this summer . . .
Half Acre Beer Co. teams up with the Marriott's Harvest restaurant to create Rooftop Honey Wheat Beer.
More than 350,000 Italian five-striped bees call the downtown hotel's ninth-floor rooftop home, and hang out in five hives (up from three last year) to produce over 200 pounds of honey.
That's waaaaay more than enough to use in a number of dishes at the restaurant, jar for your at-home pleasure and drop in bottles of Rooftop Honey Wheat Beer.
The signature beer's exclusive to the hotel, and in limited availability, so get on it!
