See what we make




Since 2015 Barrel + Brine has given new life to an old tradition by reinvigorating time-tested fermentation and pickling techniques passed down through generations. By combining those techniques with local ingredients and a culinary focused palate, we create delicious, healthy food and drink. 

Barrel + Brine makes small batch artisanal kimchi, probiotic rich sauerkraut, fresh pack pickles, and a vibrant range of kombucha from our shop/eatery located on Buffalo's West Side.

We understand that a great product begins with quality ingredients and at Barrel + Brine we take pride in the relationships that we have built with our local farmers, vineyards and orchards.     






The FOUNDERS                   

Buffalo natives Rj and Lindsey Marvin are passionate about preservation and the art of fermentation.

Rj grew up in a home with strong Sicilian roots and credits the first time he snuck into his grandparents’ basement and stumbled upon those dusty shelves lined with preserved tomatoes and eggplants as the moment he fell in love with preservation. 

Lindsey, Barrel + Brine's kombucha brewer, blames her obsession with tea on her grandmother's own love for the drink. Growing up in an Irish family, tea was always a ritual and that same quality and pride can be found in our kombucha.
