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.

This is really exciting news. Go Burgh Bees, go!
