ginger beer workshop

Soda season is upon us! Nothing beats the heat like the sweet fizz of an ice-cold soda pop. But who wants all that sugar? All those chemicals? All that...what is phosphoric acid, anyway? Rachel Armistead, co-founder of The Sweet Farm and avid soda lover, teaches you how to make your own lightly fermented ginger beer (and other sodas) with less sugar, natural ingredients and seasonal flavorings. Attendees will leave with a how-to guide, a handmade ginger bug (wild soda culture), and recipe ideas for a summertime's worth of sweet, delicious fizz!
