Stone cairn on the labyrinth at The Lodge at Woodloch

Bee's Knees Week

Here at The Lodge at Woodloch, we take great pride in our honeybees and their hives. Aside from making nutritious, delicious honey, the honeybee is also a dynamo in the garden, visiting flowers at a dizzying pace all growing-season long, helping gardeners’ and farmers’ plants with pollination. They are also a “litmus test” for the environmental stability - if the bee is not doing well, the environment is not doing well.

Crafted specially for this week, enjoy a Bee’s Knees cocktail, made with Barr Hill Gin, lemon juice, and honey. Proceeds from every Bee’s Knees cocktail served during the week will go to building educational beehives.

Join us as we celebrate this tiny but mighty creature with the sweet class selections below!
