Welcome to The Brinery, where we strive to stimulate your inner economy!
We are an Ann Arbor Michigan based business steeped in the ancient art of fermentation. The Brinery specializes in all natural brine fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, kimchi and pickles. Raw lacto fermented foods are rich in lactobacteria, similar to yogurt, and have many health benefits such as aiding digestion and boosting the immune system.
The Brinery is a concept fermented out of the local foods traditions of South Eastern Michigan by David Klingenberger. David has been fermenting and farming since before the turn of the century. He has lived and worked for many years at Tantre Farm, a pillar of the local foods community. It is there that he first started developing his love for fermented foods.
We strive to source all of our produce from local family farms. Our mission is to stimulate peoples inner economy, as well as Michigans economy.
Here is a great video of our Fermentation Workshop put together by our friend David Peterson. The Fermentation Workshop is one of the outreach programs we have developed to help raise awareness about what we do. We talk about the benefits of live lacto-fermentation as well as give instruction on how to make your own fermented food products!
