The Buzz About Honey in Downtown York

Centennial Restaurant Honey Week is almost here. Find out where you can celebrate.

Select restaurants in Downtown York are busy bees prepping for Centennial Restaurant Honey Week, taking place May 18 through May 25. Honey Week is a culinary celebration that honors the York County Beekeepers Association on its 100th anniversary by showcasing local honey on the menu of the city’s eateries. Although this is only a week-long celebration, honey is no stranger to the downtown food scene. Here are just a few places you will find this sweet ingredient on the menu:

Collusion Tap Works

105 S Howard St.

717-838-8400

Monday-Thursday, 4-10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 12 p.m.-12 a.m., Sunday, 12-8 p.m.

For Honey Week, Collusion Tap Works will showcase a special honey mead. Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey and water together. Several local farms donated the wildflower honey for Collusion’s brew, and a portion of the Honey Week sales will be returned to them. This particular mead will be sold only during Honey Week, but other meads rotate through Collusion’s taps throughout the year.

Chocolate and honey are a match made in dessert heaven. Eric Himes, of Must Have Chocolate, will feature the decadent duo during Honey Week with Honeycomb Candy, a sugary toffee made of honey that is dipped in chocolate. You can find the chocolate treat in select Downtown York restaurants throughout the week including The Left Bank, Tutoni’s and the Roosevelt Tavern. Himes also uses local honey as an ingredient in many of his chocolate creations year-round.
