Our Story

368-3-.jpgIn 2009, former archaeologists, Nancy & Walter relocated to Vermont where Nancy’s passion for local & wild food pushed her canning hobby to the next level.

Jamming and canning everything in sight, Nancy eventually ran out of fruit & veggies. Turning to the cupboards for inspiration and ingredients, Nancy developed Potlickers’ signature Beer Jelly.  

In 2011 with bills to pay, and a cupboard full of canning, Nancy went to market. Her original Beer Jelly and other unique flavors caught the attention of food lovers and taste makers across the country.

Recognized for excellence, Potlicker jams have received national awards & international attention. Today Nancy & the Potlicker Kitchen crew can up jams, jellies & pickles in Stowe, Vermont and distribute them across the country.




One of the most unexpected and most wonderful side stories of this whole journey is my beer-ducation. I have learned so much about beer styles and the brewing process. I have met, and get to work with, a wonderful group brewers and like-minded individuals. Each of us is committed to preserving a craft and sharing the art with others
