“The bees living in the resort’s apiary have produced nearly 50 gallons of raw honey this year. They are part of our community, and the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort staff thought of some creative ways to use the honey they’ve produced,” said Julie Berry, director of sales & marketing of the resort.
LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (PRWEB) September 09, 2019
Marriott hotels worldwide are known for the sustainable practice of beekeeping, including the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort. This year, the thriving bee colonies housing over 600,000 bees have yielded so much raw honey that the resort is sharing their bounty with Viva La Honey. In honor of National Honey Month, Viva La Honey is a month-long, honey-themed celebration in September that features everything from anti-aging spa honey treatments to the launch of an exclusive honey ale to a restaurant menu filled with endless tasty ways to utilize the bees’ bounty.
“The bees living in the resort’s on-site apiary have produced nearly 50 gallons of raw honey this year alone. The bees are practically part of the community at this point, and the staff thought of some creative ways to use the honey they’ve produced,” said Julie Berry, director of sales and marketing of the resort. “This includes creative menu items, honey-infused spa treatments and partnering with a local brewery, Tighthead Brewing Company in creating a custom honey beer.”
Throughout September, guests at the resort can enjoy:
Launch of Exclusive Five Eyes Honey Ale Draft
Who knew bees have five eyes? The resort is proud to announce their new honey ale made exclusively for the resort. The first batches and tastings of the new honey ale are a headliner throughout Viva La Honey.
Viva La Honey Happy Hour
Wright’s Brew & Bistro is celebrating with Viva La Honey Happy Hour every Monday through Thursday in September from 4p.m. through 5:30p.m. Specials include the first batches of Five Eyes Honey Ale Draft for $4.00 in addition to honey-inspired cocktails and honey food specials.

Starting at $36 per person and $54 per person with wine pairings, the menu includes Five Eyes Honey Ale, battered fish and chips, honey BBQ brisket, and honey pecan cake including honey financier, pecan crémeux, and honey plumped cranberries.
