one shot across three thousand on fast freight."
Urban Farm Fermentory® is an experimental urban farm, fermentation factory, and community engagement hub located in Portland, Maine. They craft authentic kombucha, jun, cider, gruit, and mead using local and foraged ingredients, when available. To sample their full selection of fresh, and seasonal concoctions on draft, visit their tasting room to experience the culture.
Gruit Brewing is part of Urban Farm Fermentory. Gruit (grut or gruyt) is an old-style beer brewed using a variety of botanicals. Before hops were readily available, brewers looked to what they could source locally. They think about gruit as beer brewed using one's back yard as a plentiful pantry—varying through the seasons—providing a diverse set of ingredients.
