Founded in May 2016 by Jesse Bussard and Loy Maierhauser, Fermentana was established on the core values of craft, community, and collaboration. Fermentana seeks to develop and grow Montana’s local communities through events which intrigue, engage, and excite fermentation enthusiasts. From craft beer connoisseurs to cultured food junkies, Fermentana’s events, like Bozeman Craft Beer Week, offer unique experiences for the gamut of fermentation aficionados and an opportunity to bolster and build our region’s communities upon a shared passion for all things fermented.
