Brewed with a special blend of honey from a Chester county apiary, this well balanced IPA has a great malt/honey backbone to blend with the citrus hops.
The consumption of locally produced honey has many benefits including relief from allergies. We can’t claim that benefit from drinking our beer but we do believe that you should buy some honey from the fine folks at Swarmbustin’ Honey. They are the ones who blend a winter and spring honey that we use in Bitto. We love the fact that each year the honey is slightly different based on what the bees eat and we believe that the subtle change in flavor resulting from this natural process is not only acceptable but one to relish.
Bitto Honey was the beer that started it all. Named after a friend of the brewer, Tim Bitto, who asked for a beer to serve at a party for his brother Don who had recently finished med school and was moving to Denver to start his career and the long road to paying off student loans. The home brew was called “HIPA” for ‘Honey IPA’ and a play on the medical term. This was one of those moments every home brewer experiences where everyone at the party asked where they could buy that beer. When they learned it was home brew and they couldn’t the seed was planted for starting a brewery.
