We've started gaining some serious momentum, not just in natural food stores, but in the social landscape where real cultural progress is being made. This is the where the true heart of Buchi beats.
Buchi is now being capped in twist off -- twist on bottles. No bottle openers necessary! You'll start to notice the new twist offs phasing in this month, and they will totally replace the pry tops soon. It's part of our larger effort for the year to make our kombucha more affordable and accessible.
Our goal this spring is to make Buchi more affordable and accessible than ever before. If you've been following us, you know we've already drastically dropped our draft prices with Whole Foods making bulk Buchi growlers and bale tops the most affordable kombucha on the market at only $2.15 per 12 oz pour.
Whole Foods supports Buchi with a region wide relaunch, helping raise awarness about our brand and making us the most affordable kombucha anywhere with access to a kegerator.
Great news kombucha drinkers! You can now find Buchi in the produce department beverage coolers of over 100 Ingles Markets around the south east! Here are a few of the reasons we are so excited:
We Are The First Kombucha Ingles Carries.
Ingles has committed to increasing their offering of healthy, nutritionally dense local foods. When they decided it was time to bring in a kombucha, they decided to work with a local brand before pursuing any of the big national brands.
While some believe the end of the world is neigh, we've been reading our organic Numi tea leaves which suggest otherwise. In fact, we believe the Mayans may just have built their calendar around a different event of cosmic significance, possibly something even more exciting than the completion of our elemental series.
Our Handcrafted Holiday Brew Is Here...But Only For A Season
As early nightfall encroaches and the evenings compel us inside with chill, we've crafted a solstice brew to celebrate the abundance and relaxation winter brings. Warming, wholesome & perfect for bringing to parties and (un)holy nights, our holiday blend will lift (and mix with) your spirits. We combined our raw kombucha with local apple cider from Hickory Nut Gap, cinnamon, clove and vanilla for a festive and delicious flavor that has already become many peoples new favorite. Just listen to this:
Each week this Fall we'll travel to a different region of the South East in our big white van (affectionately dubbed Chewy) bringing huge coolers packed full of kombucha and the fiery passion of our convictions. We'll do demos, open new accounts, check in with existing ones and build relationships in the communities we're sold in. To keep our costs low we'll eat nothing but peanut butter (this isn't true) and drink nothing but kombucha (this is pretty close to true.) Oh yea, and we're arranging all of our travel plans through couchsurfing.org. It's a bit less comfortable, but so much more fun!

After eons of my brother Zeus pestering me about the health benefits of kombucha, (and me dismissing him as another homebrewing hippie) a small kombucha brewery named Buchi has come out with a brew that caught my attention...
