NW take on malt vinegar!
Our Northwestern take on a traditional favorite, malt vinegar: A beer vinegar made with a rich and nutty classic American stout.(Why beer vinegar and not malt? Traditional malt vinegar is made from beer that hasn’t been hopped. We use finished beer to give our vinegar a more rounded, complex flavor).
BASE: Rye Stout made down the street from us at Columbia City’s own Flying Lion Brewery
PAIRINGS + USES: Fish and chips, roasted potatoes, stews, sauces of all kinds! BBQ sauce, aioli, salad dressing
Comes to us from Häxan Ferments (Seattle) via Walla Walla Food Hub. Häxan Ferments is owned and operated by Jessica Huszar. With her background as a molecular biologist, Jessica has always been drawn to complex cooking projects and fermentation. In 2018, she founded Häxan Hot Sauce, working to bring her fermented hot sauce to Seattle using the same techniques she developed in her home kitchen.
Haxan Ferments is dedicated to making unique, culinary-driven condiments. We work closely with local farmers to source the best ingredients we can find in the PNW. We use natural fermentation to capture and preserve our fresh ingredients at peak flavor while also transforming them into something unique. Driven by flavor first and foremost, our hot sauces are made with unique and fresh ingredients, expertly balanced to complement all your favorite foods with a range of heat levels. Our vinegar is flavorful with full-bodied acidity, ready for dipping, dressing, and drizzling.
