Our mission is to bring the magic of kombucha to all, without compromise. Our tea-first approach ensures we make authentic beverages from real, organic ingredients. No shortcuts, and no artificial nonsense.
Our commitment to people and planet is at the forefront of all we do, from our carbon neutral operations to our B Corp Certification.
In 2006, our founder Matt Thomas opened his first teahouse. We soon began brewing kombucha in the basement, using the same great teas we served to our guests. It got so popular, we decided to bottle it, giving it the name Brew Dr. Kombucha.
We actively work to reduce our waste and the emissions coming from our facilities and vehicles. We measure and offset all of our scope 1 and 2 emissions!
We're the first major kombucha company to become B Corp Certified, cementing our values as a company that seeks to use business as a force for good. This commitment influences every area of our business.
