One day many years ago, saddled up to the bar at Russian River Brewing Company, Jen was talking pickles and sauerkraut with a friend when they were approached by Eric. This mutual friend introduced Eric, as he was just getting off of his shift in the back of the house, where he was the lead brewer. Jen invited him to attend her monthly fermentation classes that she organized to teach the community how to ferment food at home.
Fast forward a few months, Jen and Eric had developed a close friendship founded on a love of microbes and decided to take an afternoon trip to a meadery on the coast. On the drive out to the coast, conversation about Jen’s dreams of owning her own fermentation-centric business got Eric thinking. Confidently, Eric proclaimed: “We will go into business together.” And Jen laughed.
Amused by his confidence and determination, Jen entertained the conversation of the two of them opening a brewery and pickle house of sorts, chalking it up to fun banter. However, as the months went by, these two found themselves spending hours together creating all kinds of fermented concoctions and beverages. The seed was planted and was beginning to take root. They signed up for the Business of Craft Brewing program through Portland State University, and the name and vision for “Kulturhaus” was born.
