Ferment it Wild!


The Blendery

House of Fermentology is a small beer blendery that ferments and ages its beers slowly in oak barrels. We ferment with our mixed culture of saccharomyces and brettanomyces yeasts along with lactic acid bacteria to make this beer lean, dry and refreshingly tart. Through our artiful blending, this process creates distinctive and original wild ales. All of our beers are alive, unfiltered and 100% bottle conditioned.

Todd & Bill

Between them, Todd Haire and Bill Mares have 60 years of brewing experience, but truth be told, only 20 of those years count - Todd's professional career.

Todd and Bill became friends through a shared interest in beekeeping. That friendship deepened when they decided to write together a third edition of Bill's widely-praised book, Making Beer.

During that project, they conceived this blendery, both because Todd had wanted to make these kinds of beer his whole career and to make a fitting conclusion to the book. They sized the blendery for their present time and future ambition, and sited it in the middle of Burlington's brewing district.

Where the Wild Beers Are

The blendery is located in the heart of Burlington's brewers' district in the South End. However, if you want a comfortable spot to enjoy our beers, Foam Brewers, at 112 Lake Street, is only 1.5 miles north of the blendery.
