Legend has it, the Japanese Emperor was healed with a tea, fermented by his doctor, Kombu. The grateful Emperor, then named the cha (Japanese for 'tea'), in Kombu's honor: Kombucha
Beyond Kombucha honors this noble tradition, with our artisan fermented teas and ales.
Founded in Astoria, NY in January 2010, we are the first Queens brewery since Prohibition and the only licensed "alcohol positive" kombucha brewery, on the East Coast.
We take extreme measures to source the finest organic teas, herbs and coffees; and we're just as extreme in the way we brew, as the drinks we brew. We ferment in oak barrels. Our brewery is solar powered. Our trucks run on biodiesel and we're committed to distribution without disposable packaging.
We're grateful for the enthusiasm of our customers and the opportunity to raise the bar again in brewing something unique.
Thank you for your patience, as we update our website to reflect the drastic improvements we've been making to our brewery and our product offering.
