A few weeks ago we joined Free People in Sonoma for an afternoon of kombucha brewing 101.

Twenty-Six guests gathered on the sprawling land that makes up the Lotus Feed Yoga Retreat Center. We joined together to celebrate the bounty of the earth, partake in meditation & yoga, and learn more about kombucha and what it takes to make the fermented tea.

The class was led by our brand manager, Callie, and went into a detailed explanation of what kombucha is, how it is made, and what makes Health-Ade so unique.

For those of you wondering, Health-Ade is the best-tasting and highest-quality kombucha you can buy. We brew 100% the old-fashioned way — the way nature intended — to ensure our brew is the best. We do SO many things differently, including: fermenting in glass to prevent plastic and metal leaching (we’re the only commercial glass brewer), brewing in super-small 2.5 gallon batches for premium quality, flavoring with the highest quality ingredients, like raw in-house cold-pressed juice from organic produce and, simply put, we make REAL kombucha. We don’t EVER add any fake fermenters, engineered probiotics or chemicals. We don’t hasten fermentation, force carbonate or pasteurize, and our product is certified organic, non-GMO, vegan, kosher, gluten-free and raw.

After the class, guests mingled while concocting personalized kombucha drinks using various raw, cold-pressed juices and fresh herbs. All attendees went home with a custom brewing kit to make their own kombucha at home - the old-fashioned way, the way nature intended.

Many thanks to our friends at Free People for the lovely weekend in Sonoma!
