KombuchaKon is an annual event focused on educating and networking with experienced and newbie kombucha brewers alike. Held at the Long Beach Convention Centre in Long Beach, California on February 11 & 12 we had the privilege of attending KombuchaKon 17 - Rising Tides.
Aside from the obvious allure of palm trees and warmer temperatures, KombuchaKon hosts brewers from around the globe to connect for a weekend of brewer-focused education sessions and the world's largest kombucha tasting bar. Meeting lovely like-minded, health-conscious individuals and hearing their stories of great success helped to reassure us of our role in this industry.
We are proud to be members of Kombucha Brewers International and were recharged with the energy and love surrounding our kombucha family. To hear the passion and success of the founders of KBI and it's members was nothing short of invigorating. The kombucha industry is growing at an extremely fast rate and we as brewers are uniting to make it happen on a global scale.
Educating people about kombucha and its many benefits was a resounding goal of every brewer in the room. We enjoyed meeting so many different companies and it was awesome to put a face to the name or connect in person with those we've been chatting with from a distance.
A huge thanks to Hannah Crum and Alex LaGory, founders of KBI and all those who made this event a wonderful success. We were floored by the collective generosity and sharing of information from major brewers who gave their time and energy for the benefit of the growing kombucha industry. We look forward to next year when we meet again with our friends, fill our bellies full of booch, and share our love of kombucha.
