Cool Kickstarter Alert: Locally-Sourced Sauerkraut

The Brinery

Sure the baseball season may nearly be over, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t indulge in the true American pastime: eating hot dogs. Biting into a delicious dog without the accompanying layer of sauerkraut is like laying in a bed without a pillow or petting a dog without fur (apologizes to Xoloitzcuintli fans.)

The Brinery, a Michigan-based pickling company, is attempting to buy over 12,000 pounds of locally-sourced cabbage to turn it into delicious and probiotic sauerkraut. They have taken to everyone’s favorite crowdsourcing site, Kickstarter, to ask for your help in finishing this fermented fiesta. A donation of $20 will ensure you a jar of the kraut once it is finished. A donation of $1,000 will net you and your friends the ultimate pickle party of your dreams.
