Honeycombs are produced by honey bees at a hive, harvested as part of the beekeeping industry. In order to press the honeycomb, you must have a dwarf with the pressing labor active, a screw press, and empty jugs. A wax cake is produced as a byproduct and a wax worker can use it to create wax crafts in the Craftsdwarf's workshop.
Honey is the only animal product that can be brewed, and it, along with royal jelly, are the edible products of bees. Honey has a low value of 1 and is brewed into 5 mead with a value of 1 each.
Honey jugs will be stored either in a finished goods stockpile allowing the storage of "tools" or a food stockpile set to allow "animal extracts - honey bee honey". Turning it into mead works regardless, but if bins are allowed on a finished goods stockpile where honey is stored, hauling of the bins can make the honey temporarily unavailable and force the cooking or brewing jobs to cancel.
