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.

Our Community Garden – Fresh, Organic and Free

The Good Brew community garden at Hope St Brunswick.

Here at The Good Brew Company, we value sustainable produce and community-focused projects. We have a community garden located at the front of our HQ at 54 Hope St, Brunswick VIC. We have been observing the ongoing presence of herb gardens and a strong culture of sharing within the Brunswick community and are pleased to offer our patch to others. Growing fresh herbs is a fantastic addition to your diet, promoting healthy and flavourful nutrients. They offer vitamins, antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Our initiative aligns with the Grow It Local community guidelines:
“GROW: get inspired by seeing who’s growing locally & what’s under cultivation
SHARE: connect with local growers to learn and share knowledge, expertise, produce, recipes and more”

We are registered on the Moreland Council No Spray List since 2014, which is committed to minimising reliance on inorganic herbicides for the maintenance of weeds where possible and replace with environmentally-sustainable or organic alternatives. By using an organic approach to weed management, we aim to protect biodiversity and encourage flora and fauna to flourish in its natural state while deeming it safe for public use.

What’s in Our Community Garden

In this garden, you’ll find rosemary, mint, thyme and pineapple sage. These organic herbs are up for grabs to the public.

Swing by, pop in for a hello, grab a free cup of kombucha and take a handful of herbs home. Our door is open and we love meeting people from all walks of life.

Got a question about our little community garden patch? Get in touch with us.
