Brew Dr. Kombucha, Portland, Ore., is releasing its delicious, refreshing kombucha in aluminum cans nationwide, becoming the first kombucha brand to offer its products in cans, the company says. The kombuchas are available in four flavors: Clear Mind, Love, Mint Lemonade and Ginger Turmeric, which are available in Whole Foods Market stores nationwide.
“Our customers and our employees all live active lifestyles so putting our kombucha in travel-friendly cans was a natural evolution for our product,” said Matt Thomas, founder and chief executive officer of Brew Dr. Kombucha, in a statement. “Our new packaging makes it convenient to bring your favorite drink to the beach, festivals, parks, mountains, hiking, and everywhere we like to go. Aluminum cans are more readily and frequently recycled, not to mention easier for consumers of all ages to enjoy.”
Since launching Brew Dr. Kombucha in 2008 from the kitchens of Townshend’s Teahouses, the brand has continued to innovate its kombucha-making process. Using a specially designed distillery, Brew Dr. Kombucha removes the alcohol from the fermented tea without the use of heat, preserving the beverage’s beneficial live and active cultures, it says. All varieties use Townshend’s custom organic tea blends, herbs and botanicals resulting in a smooth and balanced taste with no artificial flavors, it adds.
A fan favorite, Clear Mind is made using a blend of rosemary, mint, sage and green tea to produce a bright, invigorating flavor. The Love flavor combines jasmine and lavender to create a refreshing floral brew and gives back to 1% for the Planet. Mint Lemonade features spearmint, peppermint, lemons and green tea to create a classic combination that is light and delicious. Ginger Turmeric is a zesty beverage of ginger and turmeric presenting the perfect botanical blend for any time of day.
Brew Dr.’s canned varieties are available in four-packs of 12-ounce cans that retail for a suggested retail price of $11.99.
