Get Your Tap On
This entry was posted on April 2, 2014.
Our keg program has always been a favorite of mine. The idea of a refillable, reusable option in a world so dominated by single use is good. Yin and Yang. Balance. Its what makes the world an ok place to live.
Kombucha on tap is no longer a specialty thing. In New York City it is becoming a more normal option and 9 times out of 10 it is KBBK on the lines. Starting the year our tap list had 29 accounts, and in February we joined forces with Phoenix/Beehive. They are one of the nations largest beer distributors and the exclusive right holders to brands like Guinness, Heineken and Brooklyn beer – to add Kombucha Brooklyn to that list was an honor. It’s also been a pacesetter. New accounts are opening weekly. Most recently we went on tap at Google offices in downtown Manhattan. Our single line of ‘buch is feeding the 3000 hard working Googlers while they create the next Gmail. Cool right? New accounts you will have access to so far are Rosamunde, Dassara, and The Sampler Bushwick.
Where next? Well, you tell us. We are trying to open new accounts in our most kombucha krazed areas like Williamsburg and Greenpoint. We are also trying to open new accounts in more ‘buch nubey territory like Manhattan, Queens, and Upstate New York. If you have a place you think perfect, send us a line. If we actually get that line, we will hook you up with a custom growler that you can use to refill over and over again. Even more cool right?!
Be on the lookout for these badass new tap pulls. They were handmade right here in Brooklyn. The wood was 200 year old wood from a Tribeca loft that was spun in to unique shapes by local artist Guy Nelson. The leather KBBK diamonds were hand cut and painted by local leather smith Freddie Matara. Combined these beauties will be paving the way for the best kombucha we have to offer. If you see one, shout it out on Twitter or Facebook. We would be happy to thank you with a free pint at one of our markets or at our Lab.
Cheers to kombucha on tap!
