Kombucha has been all the rage for awhile now, especially with the healthy-eating community. One of the more popular brands of bottled raw, organic kombucha is GT’s Kombucha , produced in Los Angeles. With the popularity of kombucha, some stores began selling kombucha on tap. Bring your own bottle or get one from the store.
Now you can get raw, organic kombucha on tap at the Springfield, VT Food Co-Op. The Co-Op sells Katalyst Kombucha, a small company in Greenfield, MA, and currently has 4 flavors on tap: Ginger, Berry, Jasmine and Grape. Kombucha on tap is significantly cheaper than buying it by the bottle from the cooler.
The other great thing about getting it on tap is you can blend the flavors to suit your own tastebuds. For example, fill a bottle with both the ginger and berry flavors, mixing more of the ginger if you prefer a stronger ginger taste. You don’t even have to fill a bottle. The on tap kombucha is sold by weight, so put as little or as much as you want in a bottle.
