    I like beers that have been made with passion and creativity. It's not just a yummy beer when you drink it...it's the time and care the brewer took to make it their own personal experience they want to share with others! It's fun trying new things. I'd rather have a beer and treat myself to a new experience and appreciation while doing it!

    I have fun brewing my own Kombucha. It is a fermented tea that contains a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). It has a history of over 2000 years. It contains very minimal alcohol, as it is exposed to oxygen to let it turn to vinegar instead. It's really fun to brew and it's a SUPER good for your health! The end result is a probiotic drink with B-vitamins, enzymes, glucaric acid, and other things that help with detox, depression, arthritis..etc.

    It's really cool to me to think how Beer in ancient times was made and I imagine that the beer probably had a whole lot of health benefits much like kombucha does (besides the health benefits of beer that we know of today.) I think that drinking a glass of beer was probably like a healthy glass of kombucha maybe! Cool. I recently discovered that you can make Kombucha-Beer! :slight_smile:
