Honey Elixir Bar 

Tempt your taste buds with the Honey Bear, made with bourbon, honey and black cardamom. The non-alcoholic Sol Shine is served steaming with honey and oat-milk crystals.

Honey House Distillery

Savor spirits made in a beehive-shaped still and feel like you’re sipping straight from the honey jar. Award-winning faves include Cinnamon Honey Whiskey and Hex Vodka.

Hunters Moon Meadery

This take on the oldest known fermented beverage features harmonious flavors like Colorado huckleberry and nectar. Try Trappers Cask, boasting notes of vanilla and oak, or Howling Moon for hints of coffee.

Slaymaker Cellars

Idaho Springs
Channel your inner King Arthur as you swig Slaymaker’s subtly floral honey wine. Ask for their award-winning Wildflower Traditional mead for whispers of fresh grass and melon.


Audrey Jane's Pizza Garage

Revel in the Hot Honey Disco Pie — think spicy salami and Calabrian-chili honey. FUN FACT: Audrey Jane’s was featured on Food Network’s hit show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

Peach Street Distillers 

Dip into made-to-order guac infused with amaro honey, carrot pico de gallo and a bevy of chopped herbs. Take a tour of Peach Street’s production facility (be sure to call ahead for the weekly tour schedule).

The Windsor Hotel's Dining Room 

Del Norte
Pre-game dinner with a deluxe snacking plate piled high with locally cured meats and buttery cheeses. The best part? It’s all topped with golden goodness straight from nearby Haefeli’s Honey Farm.

Honey & Harrison

Revive your worker-bee energy with Greek yogurt drenched in fresh fruit, bee pollen, crunchy granola and Colorado-wildflower honey. 

See For Yourself

Devil's Thumb Ranch

Don a stylish protective suit and tour the ranch’s bee colony, with more than a million buzzing critters producing 1,200 pounds of pure Colorado honey. Sample summer’s sweet taste, then bring it home with a piece of honeycomb.

Hudson Gardens

Find your calling with a Meet the Beekeeper class. Learn the art-of-beekeeping foundations and real-life management techniques with a beautiful 30-acre public park as the backdrop.

Fort Collins Museum of Discovery

Fort Collins
Check out the museum’s colony doing its bee thang in the Animal Encounters exhibit. You’ll learn all about our buzzy insect friends, and you just might spot a bee doing a waggle dance to tell others where the good nectar is.


See Honeyville’s queen bee in a glass beehive, watch golden Colorado honey being bottled, and head to the tasting counters to sample all manner of pollen-y products like spreadable honey, sauces and wines.
