Bee and Food Demo

This last weekend we were asked by Chef Adam of Abbot’s Cellar to participate in a live-demo about bees, beer and food at the SF Ferry Building. We had a great time talking about the virtues of beekeeping and also incorporating some of last Fall’s harvest into the delicious winter vegetable recipe. Thanks to CUESA and Chef Adam for a really awesome day!

chef Adam ground into a fine powder for his fresh hops salt!

Chef Adam talking through his process—a pretty amazing first-hand cooking lesson!

New Year Beauty Shots

We’ve just completed the photography of the 2012 season packaging for Black Tar Honey! Many thanks to Gillian Bostock for shooting the 2oz. apothecary bottles and 6oz. jars and also to Sticker Mule for the killer label printing job. The jars and labels have never looked so good! Stay tuned, there’s much more to come in the new year!

PS. You can check out the work over at www.cameronewing.com for other packaging related design projects.

Sneak Peek: Black Tar Honey’s New Bottles

With many new followers to our blog it is probably worth reminding everyone that Mr. Combover and Cam couldn’t agree on a name for their honey so they each have their own label and equally split their bounty from each harvest.

Here is a sneak peek of Cam’s updated new Tincture bottles.
