2019 held a special moment of realization for us. We looked back and discovered something cool. To date, we’ve prevented a million glass and plastic bottles from being needlessly wasted. Selling a million cans of high-quality, organic kombucha to friends like you is cool. But, it’s not as cool as living the mission, vision, and values that have made us who we are since day one.
The Kombucha Town team has a deep connection with nature and it shows in the way we do business. We’re committed to the health of the planet. We’ve had significant setbacks on our journey. We only survived these setbacks through the power of community, relationships, and purpose. Painfully, we look upon the health and wellness struggles the world is facing. This is another cornerstone of our mission.
Most importantly, we are dying to connect with those who make the most conscious buying decisions.
We were the first kombucha brewery to package our products in 16oz aluminum cans. These cans are recyclable, lightweight, and space efficient for improved packing and distribution. They are also a safer option than glass. It breaks easily and can become a hazard. If you’ve ever stepped on glass at the beach, you know what I’m talking about. The cans are manufactured in the U.S. This keeps our dollars in the local economy. We believe cans are the best single serving package option for you.
Our facility is designed for simplicity and efficiency. Our power is 100% offset by renewable energy through Puget Sound Energy. The brewing system is fired by clean burning natural gas. The only waste from our production process is spent organic tea, which makes great compost!
Our 6,500-square-foot brewery in the basement of the historic Herald Building in downtown Bellingham, Washington features our very own canning line, a 500-gallon commercial brew kettle, several conditioning tanks, and dozens of fermentation vessels.
All of this state-of-the-art equipment is modeled after a traditional commercial microbrewery system that has been adapted for brewing kombucha. Check out the photos below for a virtual tour of our brewery.
From day one of our operations, we have held the standard of our success to the triple bottom line, which measures profit, people, and planet. In 2017 we released our first Kombucha Town Sustainability Report.
In the Pacific Northwest, there are unlimited ways to explore the outdoors, whether you’re climbing, mountain biking, skiing or more.
