A one of a kind festival, headed to Denver this weekend, could teach you a thing or two about fermenting kombucha, brewing beer and making kimichi. At the Fermentation Festival you can also sample fermented foods and beverages from around the world. Participants include some of Colorado’s top chefs and brewers, as well as many of the region’s brightest rising culinary talents.
“Our hope is that attendees go home excited to try their hand at fermentation,” says festival organizer Mike Burns. “We want to give people not only a better understanding and a deeper appreciation for the process of fermentation and its uses— but also the tools to go home and put that knowledge in action.”
Participants include TRVE Brewing, Verboten Brewing, Twelve Degree Brewing, Yak and Yeti, Grossen Bart Brewery, Kokopelli Beer Company, Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew, City Star Brewing, Gordon Biersch, Grand Teton Brewing, Sapporo, Ling Elixirs, Vital Cultured Foods, Dae Gee Korean BBQ, Vibrant Veggies, MMLocal Foods, Esoteric Foods, Lu Lu’s BBQ, El Toro The Tot, Beer Bites Premium Jelly, Happy Leaf Kombucha, Roundhouse Spirits, Wicked Hard, Vodka 14, Papagayo Rum, Juniper Green Gin, Highland Harvest Scotch, UK5 Vodka.
