Photos: Bubbling Up at the Fermentation Festival & Market

Most people think beer when they hear the word fermentation, but many other food products are the result of bacterial action: kombucha, kimchi, yogurt, cheese and even some preserved meats. But at a festival celebrating all things fermented, alcoholic beverages are going to take center stage -- nobody wants to hang out on a hot August weekend swilling keffir. Our photographer Brandon Marshall stopped by the Fermentation Festival and Market at the Highlands Masonic Center this past weekend to capture Denverites partaking in fermented food and drink.
