Ferment – RESCHEDULED to March 6
March 6, 2018
7:00pm until 10:00pm
Neolithic man first took hold of the natural processes of fermentation some 9,000 years ago. In this moment (or shortly before this moment), the groundwork was laid for the beginnings of human civilization.
From the moment that humans realized cereal crops could be utilized in the production of the worlds most popular beverage (beer), they began to cultivate these crops en masse, producing the necessary infrastructure for what would become the world’s first civilizations. In fact, there is research to suggest that beer, more than bread, was the true reason for the first intentionally organized farming systems in the Fertile Crescent (Mesopotamia).
Following these first steps into the light of agriculture, the study and practice of fermentation has expanded, with new approaches being taken every day to uncover the undiscovered tastes lying just beneath the surface of judiciously applied bacteria, both societal and biological cultures, and just the right amount of time.
On March 6th, at The Virginia Beer Company in Williamsburg, VA, we will be diving headlong into the world of fermentation with a beer-pairing dinner designed to offer insight into the nuances of fermented beverages, food, and the long and fascinating history of “the world’s oldest culinary technique.”
We would love for you to join us as we explore the world of fermented food and beverage, share a delightful evening of food and drink with the community, and experiment with some of Williamsburg’s most delicious beer in the process.
Tickets to Ferment are $85, which includes 5-7 plated courses, beer pairings, tax, gratuity, and a $10 tax deductible charitable donation to E.A.T. Foundation for the pursuit of our nonprofit mission.
