cucumber pickles + more!

Greetings from your local Brine Wizards! 

We are crawling out from under a growing pile of Tantré Farm cabbage to write to you about our August product offerings. The first round of local veggies have been harvested and production is in full swing here at the Food Hub. We are brining your favs and dreaming up new flavors with this incredible abundance! Here is what you can find from your local grocer this month.

Seasonal Krauts: Dyer Family Farm Garlic Kraut, Galaxy Rose, Fennel Love

KITCHEN TIP: Brian, one of our stellar production workers and go-to handyman, stuffed and roasted some juicy persimmons with Fennel Love!

Seasonal Pickle: Dilly Dally Pickle is HERE! Catch it at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market, co-ops, and other small markets across the state of Michigan. Limited run, get 'em while you can!

COMING SOON: Cucumber Kimchi! This season's rotating kimchi will be everything you love about Oh Gee, with the addition of crisp local cucumbers. Keep an eye out for the release of this small, specialty batch!

Restaurant Feature: We are proud to be featured on the new menu at all Anna's House locations! Go try the Tempeh Power Bowl or the Kimchi & Bacon Fried Rice Bowl and tag your dish on Instagram @thebrinery!

JOIN US: Zingerman's is celebrating its 35th Anniversary at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market on August 12 from 6PM to 9PM. We are joining the festivities and will be selling our kraut and special label (Single Barrel and Zmoked) hot sauce! There will be great food (think Reuben sliders with Brinery kraut) and even better people. See you there, friends.
