NYC's 1st Fermentation Festival Is Coming

We're excited, to say the yeast

To all the kombucha devotees, craft beer aficionados and pickle juice-hoarding gherkin eaters of the world: A festival celebrating all things fermented is headed to New York City at the end of this month. 

To help kick off the Big Apple's annual Beer Week, NYC's Brewers Guild is hosting the first ever NYC Fermentation Festival, a "celebration of all things fermented." The event is uniting fermentation fanatics from all over the city for events such as a homebrewing competition, seminars with various home fermentation tips and an abundance of fizzy drinks to sample, from boozy ciders and beers to more kid-friendly kombuchas. An expo of more than 30 vendors, featuring local businesses like Brooklyn Brewery, Kombrewcha and Mama O's Kimchi, will also be on hand for you to sample everything the wondrous world of fermented foods has to offer (which is a lot).

The Fermentation Fest takes place February 25 at the Brooklyn Expo Center, so buy your tickets now at the event's website.
