Rooftop Bee-Keeping at the Fairmont SF

Last night, we all got a behind the scenes look at the epicurean garden and hives on The Fairmont San Francisco's famed rooftop! After a brief intro to the bees and their history at the Fairmont SF, participants suited up to view the hives and learn more about the bees from Marshall's Farm Natural Honey. The group also sampled different honeys, heard from Jesse Friedman of Almanac beer (makers of beer made using Fairmont SF honey), and enjoyed a demo by the Fairmont SF's Executive Chef jW Foster, who used freshly harvested honey from the garden.  Everyone took home a recipe booklet, as well as tips and ideas on how to get started in urban bee-keeping.
