Our goal at Inspired Brews is to work within our communities to develop more thoughtful, engaged approaches to growing, buying, cooking, and ultimately enjoying our food. As a lawyer (Jennifer) and designer (Jessa), we find tangible relief from the abstract and commercial—from the temptation to disconnect and disengage—in gardening, in cooking, and in nourishing those we love. Kombucha is an age-old elixir with new potential as a handcrafted gourmet beverage. An ancient fermented tea, kombucha has been shared among families, friends, and communities for thousands of years. As a probiotic, high-enzyme beverage, kombucha has been credited with everything from improving liver health and metabolism to preventing hangovers, slowing hair loss, and curing cancer. Whatever the health effects—at the least, kombucha is significantly lower in sugar than the soda alternative and is chock full of probiotics and B vitamins—many devotees find that they enjoy a lift and improved energy from regular consumption. We have both prepared kombucha in our homes for some time, since a friend first shared the culture with us and we became enamored with its refreshing taste and feel. At first, we were satisfied with small batches and simple flavoring—orange juice, pineapple puree, and the like. Over time, we began brewing and drinking more and developing unique flavors that we love to share with our friends and families. We are excited to introduce our communities.
