The Good brew

Check Out The 2016 Wild Ferment Gathering This Weekend!

We have a right to LIVING BREWS AND FOODS—our corporate pandering, synthetic food loving government is trying very hard to remove this right!

That’s why the Living Brews and Foods Protestival movement was born. Our first event is this Sunday.

The Good Brew Company will be serving a range of delicious kombucha beverages at the 2016 Wild Ferment Gathering in Castlemaine, Victoria. Deano will also be speaking at the event as part of the Ferment Sovereignty Panel, covering topics such as fermented foods and beverages.


The 2016 Wild Ferment Gathering is a family-friendly event focused on fermentation. Experts and enthusiasts alike can try unique foods, taste new beverages, learn new culinary skills and discuss the many different aspects of fermented foods, such as probiotics for health.

There will be a range of stalls where you can sample and purchase foods or beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), along with learning new tricks to bring fermented foods into your kitchen.

The Main Stage will feature a range of guest speakers discussing topics such as Aboriginal ferments, gut health, sauerkraut, cheese, tempeh, beer, wine, bottling and many other topics related to fermentation.

The Science Corner includes experts in all fields of microbial science, ready to answer your questions. They’ll discuss topics including gut microbiome and health, lactic vegie ferments, alcoholic ferments and sourdough.

Plus to top it all off, there will be a fantastic range of live music and arts.


The gathering will be held in the Old Market Building in Castlemaine, VIC 3450.

The gathering starts at 9am on Sunday 6 March 2016 and runs until the late afternoon.


We’ll be serving a range of delicious probiotic beverages, including our famous Hibiscus Lemongrass Ginger Kombucha and our incredible JUN brews.

We’ll also be serving Jazz Apple Cider and Buckleys solar brewed Ale’s and Lagers, all from the one bicycle!

Deano will also be speaking on the main stage from 3:10pm onwards with the Ferment Sovereignty Panel.
His topics will include but not be limited to:

  • The state of play with Kombucha and Food Safety.
  • Fermenting revolution.
  • Symbiotic ferments as a metaphor for living on the planet.
  • Symbiotic living, a necessary part of our evolution.
