More details were released today about Apis, the Hill Country restaurant with a garden and 20 beehives, set to open sometime in early 2015. Helmed by chef and beekeeper Taylor Hall, Apis is set to serve American fare along with its in-house honey. Hall said in a press release today:
"The apiary will actively complete the cycle of sustainability, pollinating the gardens that will provide the honey for our craft cocktail program and many of the dishes we’ll serve."
Once open, the restaurant plans on offering tours of the beehives, as well as selling the honey itself. As a preview, the restaurant will have two pop-up dinners on Tuesday, December 16, and Wednesday, December 17, held at the Noble Sandwich Kitchen within the Oasis Texas Brewing Company. Tickets are $50 with beer pairing suggestions from the brewery.
