Fermented Soda!


Interested in finding a new quarantine hobby? Join us for a relaxed info session and hangout where FORGE’s Caleb Weinhardt will demo making fermented soda from ginger bug (the starter) to finished drinks! Fermented soda is a simple homemade drink made with ginger and sugar that can be flavored with all kinds of fruits and plants. Some favorite flavors include blueberry, Oregon grape, sumac, elderberry, and fennel!
