September 2021 – Now
For the past 6 years, Fermenthings has been on an incredible journey of exploration and growth. Over the last two years, we’ve immersed ourselves in research and development, delving deep into the fascinating world of circular fermentation. This exploration led us to establish our very own Fermentation Lab – a space of innovation and creativity.
Now, the story we must tell is one of durability and sustainability – not just in the products we invent, make, and share, but also in the way we envision our business to flourish. Fermenthings is not just about creating delightful ferments; it’s about becoming the ultimate destination where people can truly discover fermentation from every angle and perspective.
Our vision is to be the hub of fermentation knowledge, a place where enthusiasts and novices alike can come together to explore, experiment, and learn. We believe in fostering a community that embraces the timeless art of fermentation while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Through our Fermentation Lab, we aim to craft not just ferments but a culture of sustainability and innovation.
As we embark on the next chapter of our journey, we invite everyone to be a part of this transformative experience. Join us in rewriting the story of Fermenthings – a tale of passion, durability, and a shared commitment to nurturing a better, more sustainable future through the magic of fermentation. Together, let’s create a legacy that stands the test of time
March 2020 – August 2021
However, the unforeseen arrival of COVID-19 presented a significant challenge to our journey. Despite the ongoing confinement, we remained resilient, reflecting on the project’s direction, and embracing our collective strength. While the pandemic altered our path, Fermenthings remains ready to return with renewed purpose, shaped by our experiences, and eager
to conquer the next challenge that comes our way.
May 2019 – March 2020
In May 2019, we found our new home at Be-Here, collaborating with Micro Brewery la Source and later Goutzi Kombucha. Here, we flourished, hosting fully packed brunches, weekly workshops, and catering gigs across the city. The future looked promising, and Fermenthings gained significant traction in its new location.
January 2019 – May 2019
Undeterred, we embarked on an “on tour” adventure while preparing for the next iteration of Fermenthings. One of the most memorable moments during this time was a spectacular Kimchi party that took place in February 2019 at the vibrant Cocktailbar Green Lab in Ixelles.
August 2017 – December 2018
During this period, we opened our shop in Jette, offering an array of ferments from all over Belgium, with a special focus on beer-related beverages. Alongside the sales, we organized workshops, tasting events, and even ventured into catering at various festivals. Our shop became a hub for fermentation experiments, and we gathered valuable experience. However, despite our passion and efforts, we faced challenges and had to close down the shop, leaving room for a new chapter in our story.
