Introducing The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa’s Bee Royalty Initiative

Our Bee Royalty Initiative will nurture a small colony of rooftop bees that will produce delicious honey to be served at our Afternoon Tea.

Every bee will be treated like a Queen on our blissful BP rooftop and the bees will receive the Royal Treatment from our dedicated Palace beekeeper.

This initiative was developed to honor the regal nature of bees and their tireless work in providing one of humanity's most prized sweeteners and healing elixirs. Every bee is a gift to our planet, so our Palace bees are treasured guests.
