3 - MoonBrine

Stewart “Stew” Golomb started pickling 15 years ago in his tiny East Village apartment in New York City, where he filled his fridge with test batches, slowly cultivating a brand he called MoonBrine. After moving to Boston, he continued building his company. Now, in Portland, Golomb remains dedicated to his quest for crunch, fermenting all-natural ingredients and strictly in small batches. Varieties: Super Dill Pickles and Pretty Hot Pickles (pictured), as well as other pickled goodies (turnips, radishes, etc.) available only at the shop: 2505 S.E. 11th Avenue, Suite B12, Portland. www.moonbrine.com
