Brewing Workshop: Learn to Brew Your Own Kombucha This July

We love beer, maybe too much. Though we also LOVE kombucha.

Our esteemed CEO, abundance generator and imbiber of all things fermented is making the ultimate sacrifice this coming month. To make it easier to forgo beer he is running a workshop to help us all brew our own non-alcoholic ferments. There will also be big specials on our Kombucha for the entire month of July so stay tuned to our facebook page: facebook.com/goodbrewco

  • BRING a bottle and get any of our kombucha on tap for only $5 a litre (that’s half the price of booch on tap in stores)

Now Offering Our Delicious Raw Kombucha Vinegar

Good Brew delicious kombucha vinegar

The Good Brew Company is proud to offer our new delicious raw kombucha vinegar, available online shipped straight to your door or you can pick it up from our location in Brunswick VIC.

What’s in the Vinegar?

Aged in oak barrels for 12+ months in the Yarra Valley VIC, our kombucha vinegar is made using only natural ingredients and methods (even the labels are printed on 100% recycled paper with vegan ink [apart from the gold foil]).

  • Raw – filled with living friendly yeast and beneficial bacteria. NEVER heat treated
  • Low in sugar (so low it’s STARVING for it so it eats it when it’s in your guts)
  • Gluten free
  • Vegan
  • No artificial sweeteners or flavours
  • No colourings
  • No preservatives

What Can I Use It For?

  • Drink it with water
  • Turn your salad into a probiotic superfood
  • Flavour meat and vegan meals
  • Create delicious dips, sauces and marinades
  • Add depth to your pasta dishes
  • Substitute balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • The list goes on

A favourite of ours is to combine the Good Brew vinegar with dukkah and bread. Get a quality bread loaf, lovely olive oil (gotta be Australian-made, mate), dukkah (a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices) and our Good Brew Raw Kombucha Vinegar. Pour olive oil, Good Brew kombucha vinegar and your dukkah in seperate dipping dishes. Cut the bread loaf into small pieces or tear pieces off as you need. Dip your bread pieces into the vinegar or olive oil (or both), then dip the coated bread in the dukkah. The dukkah will stick to the bread and you can now enjoy the lip-smacking flavours of these foods, transformed into a delicious and gut-friendly treat with Good Brew raw kombucha vinegar.
