Fermentation Festival N Beer Masters Cup 2017

June 30th, 2017 | No Comments

Along with our traditional homebrew contest we are expanding to all things fermented, Santa Cruz County Fermentation Festival N Beer Masters Cup. From Sourdough to Pickles – Yogurt to Kimchi – Homebrew contest and Kombucha – And there will be several demonstrations and presentations. A big Highlight will be a presentation by Kirsten K. Shockey and Christopher Shockey who are the coauthors of the best-selling Fermented Vegetables and will be doing a Fermented Hot Sauce demonstration.
They got their start in fermenting foods with their farmstead food company, where they created more than 40 varieties of cultured vegetables and krauts. Their current focus is on teaching the art of fermenting vegetables to others through classes and workshops at their farm. They live on a 40-acre hillside homestead in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon.
Helping out at the front gate will be the fabulous Derby Girls. Year after year they have come out to help.
