Join award-winning author Sarah Owens for an evening of naturally cultured, fermented beverages! You will taste and learn to make three different refreshing drinks that are easily replicable at home including whey soda, jun, and kvass. These probiotic immune boosters harness the power of raw local honey and will help to keep you hydrated during the hottest months of the year. We will discuss how to harness the flavors of the seasons, making them unique to what's available as well as your preferences. You will make one 16 oz bottle to enjoy at home and light snacks will be provided.
