As a fan of the East End Brewery and beekeeping, I thought this was great news. I can’t wait until the East End Brewery makes a honey beer with honey from accross the street.
From the January 2010 Burgh Bees newsletter:
The City of Pittsburgh has granted a lease to Burgh Bees for a block-long lot on Susquehanna Street in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The currently vacant lot, which sits across the street from the East End Brewery, will host a dozen honey bee hives as well as a demonstration pollinator garden and will serve as Burgh Bees’ outdoor beekeeping classroom. The site will be open to the public for tours several times during the spring and summer seasons.
