Stephen Sandve of Vancouver is a creative entrepreneur with a passion for producing local honey and keeping bees safe and well. Keeping up with the bee bizz wasn’t always part of Stephen’s plan, but after observing a hive, things started to change.

With a slight residual sweetness and an aroma reminding us of warm nut bread, this is a malt-forward ale made from only the finest ingredients.
