Honey beers: Not just sweet

Beers in just about every style are now being made with honey.

With local-honey production back in style, brewers are embracing the phenomenon by crafting distinctive honey-tinged beers, said Laura Kiniry in Draft. Heck, even the White House has jumped on the trend, using honey from the First Lady’s South Lawn kitchen garden for a home-brewed honey ale. Beers in just about every style are now being made with honey, which often rounds out the taste without noticeably sweetening it.

Honey B’s Lavender Wheat The winner of a recent homebrew competition, this wheat-style beer from Samuel Adams has a “tart, citrusy base” softened by honey, vanilla, and lavender petals.

Orange Blossom Pilsner This “crisp” pilsner from an Orlando, Fla., brewer is made with local orange-blossom honey.

Beerhive Honey Ginger Tripel Ale This Belgian-style brew from Michigan’s New Holland Brewing Co. uses wildflower honey and beautifully complements Brie cheese.
