There is a new home brew option for residents of the northern Wasatch Front. Ever since Grains, Grapes & Grounds closed their doors a few months ago (still open on-line) residents of Davis, Weber and Box Elder Counties have had to order on-line, or drive to Richmond or SLC to get their home brew supplies.
Union Station Fermentation officially opened for business last month. Nigel and Shoshanna Itson relocated to Utah and fell in love with Historic 25th Street. They loved the look and the historic feel of Historic 25th street and decided this is where they wanted to open Ogden's newest Tuscan-themed Home Brew Shop.
Union Station Fermentation has all of the supplies needed to make beer, wine and soda. "We have 20 different malted grains available for home brewing," Itson said. "A lot of people prefer to make their own beer and wine these days."
But fermented beverages aren't the only items that make this shop unique. "Our cheese kits are very popular," Nigel said. "You can make your own mozzarella cheese in about 30 minutes with our kits. All you need to add is a little milk."
I've always wanted to try my hand at cheese, I look forward to checking it out.
Union Station Fermentation is open Tues-Fri from 10-7 and Sat from 9-8. They are located on the North side of 25th Street, next to Great Harvest Bread Co.
If your a home brewer in the northern part of the state, it's in your best interest to support business like these.
