    Where to start?! I went here on a Sunday searching for a few odds and ends for brewing beer and was delightfully surprised at the gem that is Preserved. Although there isn't a super comprehensive collection of actual beer related stuff, she had just what I needed and I left with much more. I want to start doing ALL of the things you can do with the stuff here... Plus, Elizabeth is super knowledgable, helpful, and passionate! Highlights: - Items for people of ALL price ranges. She had super-schnazzy-mega jars and just general use masons and everything in between. Something for everyone. - Elizabeth knows a TON about this stuff. I felt bad picking her brain as she offers classes often which take place at the shop, but she's passionate and super friendly so it was natural. - Tastings. She let me taste some of the booch she was making and some water that used a filter offered there. Here's a little rundown of what was available: - Specialty jars: All very functional and very pretty. Some were for pickling, some were just cool all glass sealing for general use, some for Kombucha. Within each type there were many to choose from. - Kits: Full setups to make beer/wine/mead/cider/vinegar/etc, incl the jugs, airlocks, racking canes, cultures, flavors, grains, seeds, funnels, mothers, etc. etc. etc. - Sprouting - Kefir (water & otherwise) - Yogurt & cheese (vegan options too) - Books and more books - Bone broth (so hip) I am missing so much but check out the website or give them a call! Actually yeah, just go in. If it is a style of DIY food making, they probably have it, and they probably have literally everything you need as a beginner or advanced maker of things. Absolutely worth a visit.

    Really well curated selection of products and books to make jams, kombucha, vinegar, butter, tinctures, cheese, and other fermented and homemade products. The staff is really knowledgeable and they have a lot of courses you can pay for. While not necessarily the best prices, it's nice to not have to buy a dozen jars or lids at once and support a local shop instead of Amazon.

    Knowledgeable staff that'll assist you in the right direction for preserving things in mason air tight jars or cans. They've plenty of manuals and books on all things preserving. I've never felt some compelled to try at home diy until I did the math. DIY method sure saves you money in the long run. It may take some time and effort to get it all together, but in the end you'll appreciate it very much.

    Elizabeth has a passion for all things pickled and preserved, and she shares that passion with all who enter her lovely little shop. Preserved is the only place around to both learn how to make your own kombucha/kimchee/kefir and get all the supplies you'll need to make it at home. With all the foodies in Oakland, I'm sure you will find something for yourself or a gift for a friend. Check out their class list, most Thursday nights and Sunday mornings. It's always something fun you didn't know you could make at home!

    Great assortment of supplies that I found hard to find elsewhere. Very pleasing layout of wares ( interesting and easy to see what is available) and a wonderfully helpful owner.
