Eat At Your Own Risk

Cheese, kimchi, bread, beer, yoghurt, sausage, tempeh, trassi, sauerkraut... All these amazing products owe their unique taste to living and growing micro-organisms.
Disgusting? We don't think so! At Fermentology! You can find the most delicious fermented products of this day and age. Because, lets be honest, all the good stuff comes from fermentation.

Fermentology! is a new initiative by the NeighbourFood Market and Mediamatic. The first edition will take place on Saturday 20 september, from 12.00 – 22.00 in and around the Mediamatic Fabriek.

Bier Beraad!

Tasting and presentations on wild yeasts and other tastemakers

Curious about what's brewing in your beer? Come taste, listen, learn and look at extraordinary beer design at Bier Beraad! during Bio-me. This symposium on beer design goes further than pretty colours and hip labels. One of the most important tastemakers in your beer happens to be a living organism: yeast.

Nothing tastes better than fungus

A Sausage experiment with Brandt&Levie

Did you know that the taste of a sausage is determined by its surroundings? Together with Brandt&Levie we have started a new, four-week-long experiment of sausage fermentation. 7 Organizations are competing to become the best tasting place of Amsterdam. Who will win this fungal challenge? Waag Society, Vice, Vuurtoren Eiland, Mediamatic, KesselsKramer, Brandt&Levie or Keuringsdienst van Waarde? Find out during Bio-me and join the unofficial comparative tasting at the opening of Kunstformen Der Natur on September 18th, 20:30.

  • Sausage experiments and disco balls -

  • What?!

    7 Different cultural locations in Amsterdam are competing in a fermentation competition with sausages from Brandt & Levie. You might not know it, but a sausage develops it's flavors because of fermentation: its interaction with local natural flora of micro-organisms on the spot. Every location received a package of sausages to be hung in their location. After a period of four weeks we will remove them and see what the difference is in taste, colour and consistency. The participating locations are: Brandt & Levie, Vice Magazine, Waag Society, KesselsKramer, Vuurtoreneiland, Keuringsdienst van Waarde and Mediamatic....

She’s beer curator for Mediamatic’s Bio-me programme, and puts together the programme for ‘Bier Beraad’. This part of the festival focuses on yeasts, fermentation, bacterial cultures and brewing beer.

  • You studied at the Eindhoven Design Academy first, now you’re a beer brewer. How did that come about?

    I studied at the Design Academy, ‘Man and Public Space’. And I studied at the Sandberg Institute. Six years ago I was asked to work on a project on the edge of Tilburg, at an old water purification plant. The idea was to make it into a national park. This is where I came up with the idea of the Buitenbrouwerij (Outside Brewery), because brewing beer is a way to purify water. Apparently, there were a lot of beer brewing hobbyists living around the plant, brewing in sheds and garages. I involved them in the p...
