Celebrating World Bee Day with Belgian Moon #HoneyForDaze

Today is World Bee Day! Proclaimed in 2017, World Bee Day acknowledges the role of bees and other pollinators in our ecosystem. Because let's face it, without bees we humans would be in big trouble. The protection of bees and the beekeeping sector can help reduce poverty and hunger, as well as preserve a healthy environment and biodiversity. 

Studies have proven that bees have become increasingly endangered. We need to come together to ensure the protection of bees and their habitats. Today is a great day to stop and think,  how can I make a difference for Canadian bee colonies? Our friends at Belgian Moon are sharing fun ways Canadians can give back to the bees, all you have to do is pick up a can of Belgian Moon Honey Daze. Made with ethically sourced real Canadian honey, and in partnership with Dancing Bee Equipment, Belgian Moon will plant one pollinating flower for every can of Honey Daze produced in an effort to support the ecosystem for honeybees.

Approximately 80 percent of flowering plants depend on pollinators such as the Honey bees to transfer their pollen. Without our lovely pollinating friends, humans wouldn’t be able to enjoy the natural sweeteners, like honey, that make everything, including Belgian Moon beer, taste better.

To celebrate at home this year, here are a few tips and tricks that are both easy and impactful to help support World Bee Day!

  • Plant bee-friendly shrubs in your home garden to rejuvenate our pollinators.
  • Source local and ethical products made from real Canadian honey.
  • Sponsor a bee-hive for 2021 with The Bee Conservatory
  • Create a bee-hotel or water fountain in your garden to quench their thirst, after all, they are busy-bees!
  • Purchase raw honey from local farmers or beekeepers.

We were sent a few samples of Belgian Moon Honey Daze to have to celebrate World Bee Day today and let me say, it's so good! Belgian Moon Honey Daze is a light, refreshing Wheat Ale Beer with a smooth mild sweet hop flavour. Crafted with a touch of sweetness and an orange peel for a refreshing taste, Honey Daze is a must-have this summer and pairs deliciously with grilled summer food such as marinated chicken or prosciutto-wrapped melon. 

Available year-round, you can find Belgian moon Honey Daze at your local Beer Store and LCBO retailing for $2.95 per 473 mL can. Be sure to check out Belgian Moon website for more information about Honey Daze and their other products. Be sure to also use #HoneyForDaze on social media to share about Honey Daze and World Beer Day!
