Happy New Year!

Greetings from the Brinery and Happy New Year!


Sitting nestled amongst many barrels of kraut, I can sometimes hear a briney gurgle, comforting me that all is well in their probiotic depths.

Reflecting upon this past year, I am filled with gratitude for lessons learned, relationships strengthened, the continuing growth and evolution of the Brinery business, and the thousands of Brinery jars that have made their way into the homes and guts of so many people!

So much can feel out of balance (and straight up crazy) in this beautiful world of ours. Luckily, at the Brinery, we are grounded and find meaning and purpose in nourishing our communities with traditionally fermented foods.

The new year brings further opportunities to strengthen our core business, dial in our processes, and evolve our company culture. The Brinery is a maturing business, entering its 8th year, and we are proud to be a bridge between farmers and eaters, preserving family farmed produce through the ancient and necessary art of fermentation. Our ancestors ate these same fermented foods, and we carry the culture onward with products as simple as a jar of sauerkraut.

Many blessings to all, and thank you for your continued patronage and support!

Things to look forward to in the new year: the release of Habanero sauerkraut, our latest seasonal, and more batches of JKC Spicy Carrot Pickles. The heat of sun ripened peppers will be sure to keep you warm this winter! This January, Fair n By kraut, Oh Gee kimchi, and Verde Solanales hot sauce will be on sale at all Midwest Whole Foods!
