festival + event schedule


Greetings from your local Brine Wizards! 

Temperatures have been cooling down as we approach autumn, but things have been heating up at the Food Hub. We have processed roughly 1,000 lbs of cayenne, cherry bomb, and habanero peppers for our fermented hot sauce; our stellar staff is busy preserving the bounty of late summer veg! There are a few chances to catch us out and about this month, so be sure to watch our social media @thebrinery for updates and reminders.

Try seasonal ferments at the following sampling demos put on by our friends at Taste the Local Difference!
