Brick wall collapses to reveal giant beehive

hive0

A brick wall at the Penn Brewery, not far from where I work, collapsed today during an attempt to get to a beehive said to have occupied space behind it "for years." No-one was hurt, and the local news reports that the bees are fine, too. Some of their honey may even find its way into a brew, if it's found to be of sufficient quality. I walked over and grabbed these photos of their handiwork.

The wall will be rebricked after a beekeeper removes the hive on Friday.

Good job this didn't happen during Oktoberfest.
