The Newest Addition to Baker Block: Brew Dr. Kombucha

May 2nd, 2018

MAJOR FOOD AND BEVERAGE ALERT! One of the most popular beverages from the best of the best is being installed at Baker Block. More specifically, kombucha from the one and only Brew Dr. Kombucha. To celebrate the collaboration, and give you a taste of what is to come before it is installed, we interviewed Sales Manager of Brew Dr. Kombucha, and kombucha enthusiast, Chris McDonald.

How did Brew Dr. kombucha get its start?

Brew Dr. Kombucha was started in 2008, by our founder Matt Thomas in the kitchen of our teahouses. In 2006, Matt started his first teahouse in Portland, Oregon and wanted to present the wide world of teas to his community in a casual atmosphere. At the request of our guests, we began brewing kombucha and it has since grown to Brew Dr. Kombucha.

That is fantastic. Also, a teahouse? How cool! So next, why kombucha?

Kombucha is a healthy probiotic tea that’s tasty and bubbly. 

Never can go wrong with healthy and bubbly. What about kombucha interests you? 

The unique flavor profiles, health benefits, and ancient brewing techniques interest me. 

Those ancient brewing techniques do sound interesting. Kombucha has become very popular over the past few years. What makes Brew Dr. Kombucha stand out from the competition?

Brew Dr. is authentic and responsible. We brew our kombucha traditionally, use only the highest quality raw and organic ingredients, and remove the majority of alcohol without harming the live cultures. 

Sounds perfect! Tell us more about the health benefits of this beverage.

Brew Dr. is organic, raw, and low in sugar. 

You never can go wrong with organic and low in sugar. There are tons of flavors. What is the most popular? 

Clear Mind is our most popular flavor, Herbal Uplift is my personal favorite but we have everything from Mint Lemonade to Lemon Ginger Cayenne. 

What foods pair best with Brew Dr.?

Kombucha pairs great with meats and veggies. We also love incorporating it into marinades or dressings.

How clever to add it to a marinade! What is next for Brew Dr. Kombucha?

We are going to be releasing Strawberry Basil in Spring 2018.

We cannot wait! Seeing as how we are going to have to be patient, where else can people find Brew Dr. Kombucha?

Brew Dr. can be found at Sprouts, Whole Foods, Gelson’s and third wave coffee shops.

Lastly, describe Brew Dr. Kombucha in one word.

Authentic. 

Well, there you have it. At Baker Block, we are all about providing you the best of the best and you better believe that includes fun resident events and unique amenities. That said, in the coming months, you will find a kombucha station between the poolside retreat and community backyard. More specifically, a Brew Dr. Kombucha station. Until then, go ahead and follow Brew Dr. Kombucha on Instagram and buy yourself some of their Kombucha at Sprouts or Whole Foods. CHEERS!
