WholeFoods adds Buchi-On-Tap in Atlanta

We have recently been added on-tap at three WholeFood Supermarkets across the Southeast. Sarah and I travelled to the WholeFoods Atlanta - Ponce Supermarket for the big install. It has been a while since we have travelled outside of western North Carolina and it was nice to see the diverse community in the Ponce District trying and loving Buchi!  Sarah trained Doug on the kegorator install and operation. We needed a few missing pieces, but after 4 hours, Buchi was flowing for onlookers including the managers of the Ponce location as well as top brass for the WholeFoods Supermarket chain.

These new locations serve as a  Buchi Kombucha growler fill-up point. If you don't have a growler to fill-up, no worries, WholeFoods now have their own growlers you can purchase with a deposit.

With the recent acquisition of GreenLife by Whole Foods, we are excited to see positive changes occurring inside our little community market. As part of  its new Whole Foods family, Greenlife's juice and hot food bar has received a make-over - and just in time for Buchi!

We are currently being served On-Tap in GreenLife's newly redesigned space. The best part is.... you can now get Buchi in a 64oz Growler! Growlers are no longer just for beers. Now, you can experience Buchi any time you want and on a budget you can afford.

Enjoy a single serving or re-fill your growler.

Limited Editions - Help track new batches

In order to keep the Buchi flowing, we have rushed out our Limited Edition brews. This special designation allows us to deliver seasonal brews to the region. Our current Limited Edition is a mix of organic apple juice and Buchi. Every batch we release we will blog about it so you can get the latest information first hand. We will describe each batch and the complexity of flavors that are nicely sealed under cap or tap. It is our intent to continue to refine the flavors of this brew and allow you to provide feedback. As we are a part of you, we really want our brews to reflect your taste and preferences. After tasting batch after batch, a new set of taste buds are helpful.

With each new batch, we will release our review right here!  Keep your eyes, ears and most importantly  your mouth, open.

Be Well. Drink Well.

Kombucha temporarily off shelves at Whole Foods (Greenlife)

Beloved Community,
Whole Foods contacted Buchi along with all the other kombucha producers on their shelves across the U.S. and informed us that kombucha could not be sold in their stores until a third party certified that our products were indeed below the 0.5% alcohol limit to be labeled nonalcoholic.  We are still delivering to all other retailers as normal.
Their email indicated that they had some of the national brands tested and found that many of them had mildly elevated levels of alcohol (above 0.5%). Buchi was not one of the companies tested, as we only have ties with Whole Foods through their recent acquisition of Greenlife. Due to more demand than we can supply Buchi had already sold out its inventory at Greenlife before Whole Foods requested suppliers to hold future shipments until third party testing is completed.

Buchi Brewery Under Construction

After almost a year of creating, testing and finally getting our precious Buchi to market, we are quietly growing fast.. so much so that's its no secret anymore. We are creating our own brewing and bottling facility in beautiful Reems Creek. This sanctuary of peace and tranquility is the perfect home for our Buchi to grow and be nourished.


Over the next 12 weeks, we are hoping to complete the renovation, move in our equipment and begin full production of our flavors. Rumor has it that we will be releasing Buchi Fire and Buchi Water this summer.
