About The Fermentation Bar

The Fermentation Bar is one piece of GYST's Creative Food Business. Here, we celebrate the benefits and tastes of naturally fermented foods and beverages. We are a family-owned, producer-driven business. We believe that good food comes from good people, so we highlight our favorite artisanal producers and farmers, and connect you to their products and stories. Currently, the Fermentation Bar is only open for pop’-ups, tastings, workshops and events.



Our Kombucha + Pickles

We are producers ourselves. GYST Traditional Pickles and Kombucha are made in-house using the best local and/or organically farmed ingredients. Supporting the livelihood of those in the food and beverage industries is profoundly important to us. We either source directly from farmers and producers or use products with transparent sourcing and practices. It’s how we sustain ourselves, grow our small business, and how we support the businesses of our fellow food producers, farmers, and food businesses.


GYST Traditional Pickles

Our pickles are naturally fermented using the freshest possible organic produce. We add only kosher salt and water: no heat, no vinegar. The result is a naturally tangy, flavorful and healthy pickle that complements any dish.

GYST Kombucha

GYST Kombucha is different. Brewed with the finest fresh and/or dried herbs, we bring you an herbal tonic kombucha that is balanced and revitalizing. We are always experimenting with our herbal teas to brew kombuchas like dill, lemon balm, ginger, chamomile, hibiscus and chocolate mint.

We believe preservation is innovation. Fermentation allows food products to be sustainably preserved and gives them a unique and desirable flavor. The process enhances and stimulates healthy microbes and boosts vitamins and nutrients. Currently, we work directly with three local farms: Twin OrganicsLily Springs Farm and The Good Acre Farmers.
