2014: The Future of Mombucha

Greetings from the land of Mombucha!

Having gone underground, even deeper than before, Mombucha is poised to emerge triumphantly this year with some very interesting, thrilling, exciting, nutrified, acidified, naturally carbonated, uncompromisingly high quality and novel developments.

First, we built a factory.  Well, it’s a garage with plumbing and electric but with the help of the great Cup & Compass, we are sharing a space where we’ll be producing our products and hosting events of all kinds.  Essentially, it’s business in the back, party in the front.

We couldn’t wait to get the events going so we’ve already thrown some rock shows and some proms (pictured below).

We’ve also stepped up our production with a piece of equipment that is the real game changer – a 40 gallon Vulcan steam kettle built in 1977.  Indeed, they don’t make ‘em like they used to.

Built the year Star Wars was released.

Lastly, the look of Mombucha will change ever so slightly.  Inspired by the Korean card game “Hwa-Tu” translated to mean “Flower Fight,” the simple, somewhat kitschy, somewhat occult imagery is the theme for what will adorn our sturdy, keepsake swing-top bottles.

Flower fight!

Full series study.

After all this, it’s reasonable to assume that Mombucha will be available much more readily as a grocery item in the very near future.  We are seeking “alcohol positive” brewing status now that the Alcohol & Tobacco Trade & Taxation Bureau has declared kombucha officially “beer or wine.”  Not entirely a bad thing we think, it just means we’ll have to put some silly warnings on the labels and pay $7 to the government for every 30 gallons we produce.  C’est la vie.

Until we meet again, happy holidays and may your new year be prosperous!  See you on the shelves!

Is beer making you too tired to watch the whole Super Bowl?  Drink Mombucha!  It’s like energy beer!

Seriously, wouldn’t it be hilarious if Mombucha, the hippiest hippy kombucha concentrate ever, had a commercial during the 2014 Super Bowl?

Click that link and vote and make Mombucha the official beer replacement of Super Bowl XLVIII.

Wino Juice

Miraculously, fortuitously, and still yet further amazingly the phenomenal Team Wino has offered me slot among their ranks of veteran AIDS Lifecyclers!   HUZZAH!!! So incredibly excited about this.

After navigating the labyrinthe and challenging barrage of Facebook comments and clever posts, an unusual yet effectively grueling hazing ritual, myself and Mombucha will be riding for a cure to the devilish disease of AIDS this June.

In honor and support of my team and fellow Lifecyclists (Aviva Yael too!), Mombucha has specially blended Indian black tea, marigold flowers, and passion fruit essence affectionately dubbed “Wino Juice,” a vibrant burst of fruit juiciness, turbo strength nutrient rich and black tea flavonoid blast.

Best of all, you can donate while drinking – half of every purchase will go towards our goal.  Just request “Wino Juice” in your next order either through our recently updated “Shop” option here or through our local customer portal at Zaarly.com.

You can also donate directly here.  Go Winos!

Barbucha

More of this coming to my page on Zaarly but another fun thing you can do with Mombucha is rent me for the day/night and I’ll custom brew you a flavor whilst flexing my mixology skills at your next art opening or bath house rave.
