It’s time to get serious about kombucha. Yes, kombucha, that weird stuff your hippie friend brews in their kitchen that tastes a bit … different. Well, not all kombucha is created equal, and the holy grail of delicious booch lies across the border in Madison, Wis. — NessAlla Kombucha. You see, NessAlla’s kombucha is delightfully different, with fresh and bright flavor combinations that please your palate, are wonderfully sophisticated, and pair well with meals. Once you’ve tried NessAlla, we’ve come up with some delicious ways to level up your booch game by incorporating this effervescent, tasty beverage into your beer, drinks, and cocktails.
Step One: Start by drinking delicious NessAlla Kombucha
NessAlla is something special. It is the craft beer of kombucha. Each batch is brewed with love in Madison, Wis. in a custom-built, eco-friendly brewery that houses the happiest SCOBYs on earth. (What’s a SCOBY? — get the scoop on the NessAlla website.) NessAlla uses Rishi Teas and organic, fair trade ingredients, and they have a reverse osmosis water filtration system that ensures each bottle and keg of kombucha is extremely delicious and fabulously fresh.
Wondering where to find NessAlla Kombucha in Minnesota? It’s all over the state — in bars, cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, co-ops, gas stations — you name it, it’s there. You can get NessAlla on tap, in growlers, or in convenient grab-and-go bottles. NessAlla even has a handy dandy location finder on its website! All you have to do is plug in your ZIP code and get directions to find your nearest booch fix. Our favorite spot to pick up a growler? The Wedge Co-op on Lyndale in Minneapolis.
Step Two: Next Level Booch
Now that you’re a bona fide booch drinker, it’s time to try something new: Put some beer in your booch!
Grab a high octane IPA or a smooth lager, and mix it with some kombucha. It’s NessAlla’s version of a radler or shandy, but instead of sugary lemonade, you’ll be sipping on a tasty combo of beer and booch.
Here’s a recipe starring Minnesota’s own Surly Brewing Co. to get you started:
