Our Brew Dr. Story

We are kombucha from a Tea Company and we’re proud of where we came from. Every batch of Brew Dr. Kombucha is crafted from the beginning. We start with the same high-quality organic teas we serve at our Townshend’s Teahouses and add only organic botanicals (dried herbs, roots and fruits). It’s a no shortcuts, whole ingredients approach that we have stayed true to from the beginning.


Matt Thomas started Townshend’s Tea Company with the idea of serving great teas in a casual teahouse setting. Today there are 9 Townshend’s Teahouses throughout Oregon, Montana and Utah.

We began making kombucha in the kitchen of our first teahouse 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.



With the help of a Local Producer Loan from Whole Foods Market, we moved Brew Dr. out of our teahouse kitchen and into our first Portland brewery.



Townshend’s Distillery is born. What started as a way to make use of the alcohol we remove from Brew Dr. turned into an award-winning spirits business.
