Musing from the owner of Grow and Make: Will Johnston
Living in Portland, it’s hard to not be a big fan of beer. Apparently there are more micro breweries here per capita than in any other US city. Recently I decided that I’m making the switch to kombucha in place of beer when I have a choice. The reason I’m doing this is that I find beer makes me sleepy and if I’m not drinking more than one, less social after about 30 minutes. Also, there is not much of a health benefit to drinking beer and in fact it’s loaded with carbs. I’ve found that a good quality kombucha actually is similar to beer on the pallet and the natural probiotics are a great contribution to microbial gut health, which is being linked to many health benefits. While it does have some carbohydrate, it’s typically not as much as beer and it won’t put you to sleep.
