2020/2021 festive season break for The Good Brew Company.

The Good Brew Co will be taking a well earned break during the festive season.

We’ll shut our doors from Wednesday 23/12/2020 and reopen on Monday 4/1/2021.

Staff will be back on Tuesday 29/12/2020 to post out and hand deliver any last minute emergency orders for our beautiful stockists.

Our web store will be running as usual and ready to take your orders.

This New Years, our whole team will be at FRL. Get there if ya can! It will be amazing. If you haven’t heard of FRL (Folk Rhythm Life festival), you wouldn’t know about this little shindig coming up on New Year’s Eve. If you have, you know what I mean when I say you are gonna want to get to this one. For more info, visit: https://www.facebook.com/bilyanarocks/. The party is affectionately titled FRO2020. I think you can guess what the FRO means.

From everyone at The Good Brew Co, we wish you a fantastic break (if you get one) and a happy new year.

Introducing SCOBY of the Month

Good Brew SCOBY of the month, December 2020 from Jonra Seward.

So we’re running a SCOBY of the month competition on our Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/goodbrewco/). Some incredible shots are coming in and some brutal ones. Do you have an amazing / hilarious SCOBY of your own that you want to show off?

The winner of each month will receive a flavouring infusion pack. Maybe the hibiscus, lemongrass and ginger mix so you can pretty up your brew. We’ve seen some shockers!

This month’s winner is Jonra Seward and their SCOBY (pictured above) can definitely do with some flower arrangements. 🙂

If you don’t Insta, you can email us via using the subject “SCOBY of the Month Submission” with a good quality photo and a short description of your particular SCOBY. Our veteran brewers / judges will review the SCOBYs and include the pick on our newsletters, website and social media.

Please note that as part of submitting a SCOBY for SCOBY of the Month, we may use your photo on our website, social media, newsletter and other digital channels. We may also include your name and short description of your SCOBY. Please mention in your submission if you want any specific details used or not included.

Introducing Our New Kombucha Flavour – Good Maté (Yerba Maté)

The Good Brew Company yerba mate good mate kombucha flavour.

After much research and serious tasting, we’re proud to announce our new kombucha flavour, Good Maté.

Good Maté combines yerba maté with our original living kombucha to form a fantastic energising beverage that is rich in flavour and filled with living probiotics.

What’s in Good Maté?

Brewed right here in Victoria, we combine only the finest of organic ingredients, which are:

  • Organic yerba maté tea (brewed with Daylesford spring water) (75%).
  • Organic kombucha (24%) (fermented from Daylesford spring water, sugar, green tea and kombucha culture).
  • Organic lemon juice (<1%).

As ALWAYS, nothing nasty is done or added to our bevvies.

Like all of our booch brews, we use a solar-powered brewing process to deliver amazing beverages with an environmentally-friendly focus. Even this funky new label is STILL printed on 100% recycled paper with vegan ink.

What is Yerba Maté?

The beverage maté is somewhat similar to tea in being a caffeinated drink that you steep. You have probably seen it in its traditional form, prepared in a gourd container (with a stem), from which it is also drunk. A particular type of straw (called a bombilla) is placed in the maté gourd, allowing a person to drink it easily while filtering out leaf pieces. It’s traditionally consumed in the southern and central regions of South America. It’s also the National Beverage in Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina. Today, tea-bag style infusions of maté are available in many places.

It creates a gentle buzz that gets you going.

Order it Now

We’re now posting Good Maté throughout Australia. You can order 6 packs or slabs of our Good Maté by visiting the following:

Cheers!
