We've created a special Pride edition kombucha to show our support for the LGBTQ community!
Introducing PRIDE and EQUALI-TEA Kombucha.
Developed to stand out from the rest, this booch made its debut on tap today featuring a fun, bolder, appearance, symbolizing uniqueness, inclusion, and flare.
As a kombucha brewery, an exciting part of our work is flavour development and taste-testing. Originally we had thought of formulating a kombucha combining a fruit from every colour in the rainbow, but the end result would have had less effect and visual appeal. Pride and Equali-Tea is much more simple in flavour, yet loud and proud in its striking colour.
Infused with organic whole pineapple, stevia leaf, and blue algae powder, this vibrant brew is anything but ordinary. Known in colour psychology as the colour of the evolved soul, Turquoise not only helps evoke peace, happiness, and creativity, but it is said to help open communication, build self-esteem and self-love, which in turn supports our ability to love others unconditionally.
As a proud sponsor for the Pembroke Pride Festival, we also wanted to take the opportunity to use our kombucha for the cause.
$1 from every 1L Pride and Equali-Tea bottle sold will be donated to supporting Pride initiatives in our community.
Booch lovers can fill up on tap in Pembroke at Blendz Smoothie Shop and in Deep River at The Olive Tree, knowing their purchase contributes to making a difference.
Although the brew is seriously delicious as is, we thought a signature Pride and Equali-Tea kombucha cocktail recipe would take it to the next level.
- Pride and Equali-Tea Cocktail -
4 oz Pride and Equali-Tea Kombucha
3 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Blue Curaçao
0.5 oz Vodka
Pour over ice or combine ingredients in a shaker, serve in a tall glass and garnish with a pineapple, strawberry or whatever suits your fancy.
Make it colourful, just like you!
*Opt out of the alcohol and it's just as delicious as a virgin cocktail!
Other cocktail recipes like Electric Lemonade, Smurf, or Blue Margarita can be made by using half juice, half kombucha or by fully replacing the pop with kombucha.
June is Pride month. We stand proud alongside our LGBTQ family members, peers, those in our community and across the globe. Together we unite, not only this week, this month, but always, making our voices heard and understood, moving forward in alignment so that we never have to be afraid to wave our flag and show off our brilliant true colours.
Join in the many fun and exciting activities throughout Pembroke Pride Week from June 7th to 15th and for a full day of celebration at the Pembroke Pride Festival on June 15th. A huge thank you to the Pembroke Pride volunteers and organizers!
“One day we won’t have to ”come out of the closet”. We’ll just say we are in love and that will be all that matters.”
What a great weekend in London, ON for the first annual London Tea and Kombucha Festival!
Such a great group of tea sommeliers, tea totalers, tea enthusiasts, kombucha brewers and fans came out for the event at the Wolf Performance Hall downtown London. We certainly enjoyed meeting new faces, making new friends, and getting to know some of the kombucha brewers in the area.
So many teas to sip on! We're grateful for the welcome invitation and thankful to Founder, Michelle Pierce Hamilton, fellow RHN, tea sommelier, and owner of The Tea Lounge and Be Teas and her wonderful team for bringing this festival to life.
A chilly start to the day didn't deter locals in attending the the 3rd annual Renfrew Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival on Saturday. The beer was flowing, food trucks were sizzling, and by noon the square was a buzz with folks looking to taste the latest in regional craft brews.
This year saw the biggest turnout with around 2000 attendees, not bad for a small town festival set to showcase the finest in locally produced beverages while creating a fun atmosphere for all ages. With live music throughout the day, free glowsticks passed around for the dance in the square at night, the festival drew in new crowds for the extended hours with an evening band, The Paperboys.
Full list of businesses there to quench your thirst and fill your belly included Perth Brewery, Orléans Brewing Co., Cartwright Springs Brewery, Laurentian Brew Kombucha, Whitewater Brewing Company, Square Timber Brewing Company, Beau's All Natural Brewing Co., Bancroft Brewing Co., Broadhead Brewing Company Ltd., Brasserie Tuque de Broue Brewery Inc., Needham's Market Garden, Kin Vineyards, Hot Shots Coffee Canada, Big D's Dog House & Poutine Emporium, Bonita's Cantina, Backyard Gourmet BBQ and Mr.Churritos.
Thanks to a wonderful team committed to bringing a celebration of locally crafted food and drink to the Valley, the Town of Renfrew hosted another successful event of beer sipping, kombucha tasting, food-filled, festival fun.
Looking forward to next year!
Find us in Renfrew this Saturday, October 13th for the 3rd annual Frewtober Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival. We'll be there from 11:00am until 8:30pm serving up fresh kombucha on tap for your healthy, non-alcoholic alternative beverage needs.
We'll have four flavours on tap plus bottled booch for sale, and samples are always available to all who want to taste, quench their thirst, cleanse their palette, and sip on a different type of ferment.
Check out the lineup of local craft beer and food trucks! New this year - even more live entertainment and a "dance in the square" with an evening roof-top concert.
Meet you in the square!
What a day! Muskoka Veg Fest was a huge success!
River Mill Park in Huntsville, Ontario was a buzz on Saturday, August 11th, celebrating conscious living, wellness, and sustainability at the plant-based festival. The first of its kind in the area, Muskoka Veg Fest was host to over 65 vendors, special speakers, and musical entertainment and welcomed a safe environment for vegan and health-conscious festival attendees.
A morning shower didn't seem to dampen the day as hundreds made their way through the grounds, visiting each booth, trying new products, and learning about living a healthy, vegan lifestyle. Samples were plentiful and there was many a cloth bag full of tasty goods purchased to be enjoyed at home. Warm sun graced the skies by afternoon and by closing time quite a few businesses had sold out of their products.
A wonderful outcome for the event made successful by a great group of organizers, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, educators, and attendees.
Thanks to the Muskoka Veg Fest team! Until next year!
"Muskoka Veg Fest is a plant-based, dairy-free, meatless festival that showcases great food, entertainment and cruelty-free products from conscious minded individuals and businesses.
Bringing a collaborative celebration of animal welfare, health, and environmental education to showcase the benefits of a vegan lifestyle".
