Try some local kombucha this FeBREWary

Kombucha is a fizzy, fermented beverage of black tea and sugar that has exploded in popularity in the last ten years. It is fermented by a SCOBY, or Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast, which contains beneficial organisms that turn sugar into healthy acids and probiotics. It has a slightly sweet and tangy flavor and can be flavored in many ways after the fermentation process. People love it because they report it supports increased energy and better digestion.
