Snowbees The littlest workers at 49th State Brewing are our Snowbees. The apiary is located here in anchorage and we practice sustainable beekeeping. That means that the snowbees are wintering in Alaska and surviving! Currently, the snowbees total 8 colonies. The amount of honey they produce varies depending on the weather. We can promise you that it’s some of the best honey in the world! Clean, clear Alaskan air means low pollution and healthy, happy honey bees.Try Snowbee honey when we release special beers made with the honey, in the honey butter served with our spent grain lager loaves, or in the Alaskan honeymoon cocktail at the overlook restaurant in Denali Park.
