This week for our Brooklyn Artisnal share, we have kombucha (or ‘buch) from Kombucha Brooklyn (KBBK). Kombucha, a fermented tea beverage that is both delicious and health-supportive, has been gaining popularity over the past several years. Today, it is known around the world for its detoxifying and energizing effects.
KBBK began in a Williamsburg, Brooklyn apartment in 2007 when Eric Childs discovered kombucha. Eric had been suffering a pesky heartburn problem for years and started drinking the beverage in hopes it would kick that heartburn to the curb. Initially, he made kombucha solely to improve his own health. However, once he began sharing his home brew with others, he became overwhelmed by the requests for more! Before long, he was in business and the Kombuchman was born! Taste it once and you’ll be a kombucha junkie for life!
