FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All guests must be at least 21 years of age and with valid ID. 

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is available at the Whiskey Factory located at 1000 Maple Street, and the location is accessible by all modes of transortation. MOGO bikes are located nearby at Gratiot and Russell ST. 

Will I get stung?

No, silly, live bees will not be flying loose inside the factory.

 

The Whiskey Factory, a long­-dormant building at 1000 Maple Street, located just off Gratiot Avenue between Downtown Detroit and Eastern Market, is the last remaining structure at the site that largely defined Detroit’s brewing legacy. Brewing at the site goes as far back as the 1930’s when Goebel Brewing Company built a massive brewery to compete with Stroh’s Brewery, Detroit’s largest brewery at the time. The breweries were located directly across the street from one another. Shortly after Stroh’s acquired Goebel’s in the 1960's the building was converted to a factory to produce Stroh’s ice cream, a successful business created out of necessity during the days of Prohibition when producing alcohol was illegal. 

Today, we're reviving the long history of alcohol production at the site that started it all.

BEES IN THE D

“Bees have been a symbol of resurrection throughout history. They’re also a signal of being prosperous and successful and I feel that mirrors Detroit beautifully. It’s a resurrection right now. Detroit had a reputation as Motor City, then it had a reputation that wasn’t so desired, but now we’re seeing another push of Detroit becoming an art mecca, a technology mecca, a greening and gardening mecca. Honey bees would not only benefit Detroit’s community, but agriculture as a whole. Honey bees and an urban environment can have a symbiotic relationship; we can function together. What I love about that aspect of it is most of the spots that I’m eyeing are wasted space. Rooftops where nothing is happening or vacant lots; areas that are for the most part not being used so that’s the beauty of it.” -Brian Peterson-Roest. Visit www.beesinthed.com
