Celebrating 2012 into 2013 one event at the time

Curating an upcoming event at YBCA in San Francisco gave us a chance to hang out with Tommy Lau (photographer) and Maureen Dixon (Communications manager) the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
The photo shoot was easy and fun and we topped it off with a dinner at Tom's college boyfriend Tyler MacNiven's "West Of Pecos" south western inspired restaurant, our go to dinner place in the Mission on Valencia and 16th.
The art event "ConVerge" on Thursday, January 17, 4-8pm in the lobby of YBCA adjacent to the 'small room for big ideas', is the heart and brain child of Katya Min, Senior Program manager at YBCA
We love these peeps and also the original intention of the YBCA in San Francisco to be a showcase and gathering spot for residents and visitors of every stripe and strokes.

Kombucha keeps us squeaky clean

 Brewing our own brand and flavors has been a passion for over three years and we have refined our selection to three flavors:

  • White Flower, in  a base of herb and green teas, we add jasmine, elderberry flowers and orange blossoms plus organic cane sugar which is the basic 'food' for the kombucha 'scoby*' culture
  • Amber Rose, in a base of black teas like assam, darjeeling, Pu-err, herbal like roibois plus tea rose buds and petals with the added organic cane sugar which feeds the kombucha 'scoby*' culture
  • The two fruit flavors are seasonal:  In spring and summer we brew Pomegranate Lime; Fall and winter sports the all American Concorde Grape
  • * scoby stands for: synergistic colony of beneficial yeasts (and bacteria like yogurt,kefir have)
  • kombucha beverage is non-alcoholic at about 0.5%
As of now we only supply our inner circle friends and peeps, we will let everyone know when we are ready with permits, insurance and all the legal dance involved in providing our goods to the general public.

If you by chance are reading this and think, cool I can help these guys with next steps, please contact us.
Or, I have heard about this kombucha brand and am dying to get my hands on us.
