At LA Brewery we believe in multiculturalism. For us, diversity is life. We believe in a rich and varied world of multiple cultures. We now know that the closed system of an overly sterile environment has stripped us of our natural immunities, leaving us exposed. We believe exposure is tolerance and that’s what we want to do – introduce life in all its richness back into bodies and minds.
So that’s why we started a fermented food brand, beginning with a range of delicious Kombucha with our SCOBY mother culture. We started with Kombucha because we wanted a fizzy drink with less sugar, a health tonic high in probiotics and a viable alternative to alcohol. Most of all, we wanted to make something that was both delicious and good for you.
We hope you like it.

What is LA Brewery Kombucha and how is it fermented?
Our Kombucha is a naturally effervescent, health-boosting tea full of probiotics, beneficial enzymes & antioxidants.
Made using high-altitude chemical-free green and black teas, naturally-fermented at 25 degrees to produce the raw living health tonic.
Our Kombucha is created by fermenting sweetened green and black teas with a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria & yeast). The yeast consumes the sugar, converting it into ethanol and co2, simultaneously the ethanol is being consumed by the bacteria and converted into acetic acid which gives the Kombucha vinegary tones.
How does the LA Brewery add flavour?
Secondary fermentation technique adding fresh ingredients to enhance the natural flavours of the Kombucha.
What are the health benefits?
Immune System Boost - Fermentation encourages growth of good bacteria and probiotics which can aid digestion and strengthen and heal the gut.
Natural detoxifier and energiser – The abundance of antioxidants, probiotics and enzymes promote detoxification. Kombucha can help support liver function by assisting in the cleansing of toxins and free radicals. It is also believed to help the body eliminate heavy metals.
Natural healing - The high probiotic content has been linked to the reduction of anxiety and stress. Kombucha has been cited in testimonials to have had a positive effect in the natural treatment of illness
Does it have caffeine in it?
Yes. Our Kombucha is made with 80% green and 20% black tea. Green tea has half the caffeine of black tea. Therefore, our Kombucha has less than a quarter of the caffeine in a coffee.
Does it have sugar in it?
Yes, the sugar content is 3.5g per 100ml
Why? As the Kombucha continues to ferment, the sugar levels drop and probiotic levels rise - It is constantly evolving and that’s why we love it.
Does it contain alcohol?
Kombucha contains trace levels of alcohol due to the fermentation process but no more than 0.5% so it is classified as a non-alcoholic drink.
Can Kombucha be consumed daily?
Does it contain any gluten, dairy or animal products?
No! Ingredients - green and black tea, sugar, kombucha culture, fruit and botanicals.
How many calories in a 300ml bottle?
See the above answer above concerning sugar content, but approximately 60kcal in a 300ml bottle.
