Odd Culture Fitzroy has created an event for the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival specifically for all those who love wild and unusual fermented flavours — the funkier, the better. So if you would proudly describe your palate as dank 'Fizz: A Festival of Fermentation' is one to ink in your calendar.

From 12–4pm on Sunday, March 17, the Odd Culture crew will take guests on a journey through the world of fermented drinks, from beer and wine to sake and gin, while serving up Mediterranean and Middle Eastern eats courtesy of the legend Chef Tom Sarafian who has curated a grill-heavy selection of bites.

The $78 ticket will include one main meal per person, but you can always order and pay for more on the day.

The Odd Culture crew has teamed up with Four Pillars to offer all punters a complimentary fermented dirty gin martini on arrival. For the occasion, Four Pillars' Creative Director of Gin Drinks Nick Tesar has also come up with a small list of other gin-based bevs that can bought at the bar.

The venue's beer garden will then be filled with a series of stalls slinging tasters of fermented drinks. Either sip your way around the stalls or buy a few bottles to take home. For extra vibes, and to keep you entertained in between tastings, there'll also be live bands and DJs playing all day long.
