Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, I'll Have Another Whiskey Manhattan, Please**

My take on this is that the bees go where they can get enough food to survive. I think it's pretty brave of anyone keeping bees in an urban setting.  Good for them.  It would be nice, however, if there were enough actual pollen to feed the bees & have them produce normal honey.  I wonder if there is a market for cherry honey?


**I'm from Wisco where we drink a lot of brandy, so I also need to ask for whiskey.

Depending on who you’re asking, Wisconsin consumes either the most brandy in the nation, more brandy than all other 49 states combined, or 90 percent of brandy distilled worldwide.

Though each of these claims proves more hearsay than fact, Wisconsin does consume disproportionate amounts of the liquor. For Korbel, a northern California brandy manufacturer, the state is an invaluable market.

Wisconsin is Korbel’s biggest state for sales, purchasing roughly 133,000 crates of Korbel brandy in 2008, accounting for more than one third of the Korbel’s total brandy sales, Korbel’s Midwest Area Manager Mark Winkels says. Wisconsin has been a major market for Korbel over the past 15 to 20 years.
