THE PLACE WHERE BEER AND BEES COME TOGETHER

THE PLACE WHERE BEER AND BEES COME TOGETHER

Drink Hiver, save bees.
Unlievable right?

Well, the truth is we’ve been as committed to bees as we have been to beer since we started brewing our flagship fresh and natural blonde beer back in 2013.

Everyone knows that without bees we’d all be in a very difficult place environmentally, so we made it our cause from the beginning to champion these essential little gems of nature.

Every day we’re helping independent British beekeepers by buying their honey to nurture both urban and rural hives, creating healthy colonies that can do the heavy lifting of pollinating the food we eat. We then use the honey as an integral part of our brewing process, helping us to deliver this crisp, light-tasting beer with a subtle honey aroma.

We don’t pasteurise our beer either, which means you always get the freshest, most natural beer in your glass. And, just like the bees as they go from flower to flower, we tread lightly in all areas of our daily business, so there’s plenty of reasons to feel good about choosing Hiver.

our sourcing policy

We believe even as a small team, that by caring about the provenance of our ingredients, by telling an important story through great beers and by caring about our suppliers, we have a sustainable approach to craft beer and can do well by doing good while hopefully having some fun too. So what exactly do we do when we say we ‘do business by doing good’?

Hiver sources raw honey from independent British beekeepers, we sponsor a number of beehives and we run really fun experiences that also help spread knowledge about the role our furry friends play in our environment. We also believe that supporting our beekeepers through purchase is one of the best ways to support British bees and since Beekeepers tell us that the best way to support bee populations is by planting for bees, every web order at Hiver is despatched with a free seasonal pack of seeds too. We’re working towards our B-Corp accreditation and pledge to donate 10% of profits to pollinator and green spacing projects as we grow.

Having started by thinking about bees, the ethos of treading lightly and of sourcing ‘all-British' became as important as the strive for the best fresh and natural brew. So, you can be sure that Hiver will also always go the extra mile to work with local suppliers, like the people that kiln our glass, produce our labels and stamp our business cards. This means that we have a low carbon footprint with less travel miles on our beers than others as well as being proud to support UK industries through purchase.

So, whether you’re enjoying a Hiver with friends, attending an Experience or planting some of our free seeds for bees there’s hopefully lots of reasons to feel good about choosing a Hiver.

LOVED BY MANY

Holding the launch for our new book, Lonely Planet’s Global Beer Tour, at the Hiver Beers railway arch, was a great experience. The whole team were fantastic to work with - very responsive - and made the event feel easy and fun, which was exactly the vibe we were going for! Having it on a summery evening was perfect as we had the doors open and everyone loved the venue. I would definitely recommend it highly - we’re trying to think of another event we could hold there! Katharine NelsonLonely Planet I am really impressed by Hannah's innovation, enthusiasm and knowledge of an industry she has a massive amount of passion for. The entire Hiver product, from taste to packaging, has been carefully crafted. She's doing something different, she's doing it well and she loves doing it. Tom KerridgeChef Patron of The Hand & Flowers I love Hiver beers, ever since I first tasted them during a beekeeping experience at Bee Urban in Kennington in 2019. I recently ordered a tasting pack of beers, including their honey blonde, amber ale and newly launched session IPA. They are all winners in my view (although I have a soft spot for the amber, which has a lovely lingering malty aftertaste). You would think that, having been brewed with honey, they would taste awfully sweet, but they don't. They are very refreshing, thanks to the process of adding the honey at the start of the fermentation process in place of other sugars. The honeys have been specially selected to give each beer its unique flavour. Highly recommend! Kayleigh Woods HarleyGoogle Review
