Insider’s tip: the fest provides the chance to sample Kombucha beer, crafted by Tarek and Rachel Kanaan of Unity Vibration Living Kombucha Tea. Kombucha is a raw, living, fermented, naturally-carbonated, unpasteurized beverage with a long history in Russia and China. The lightly sparkling beverage is made by fermenting black or green tea and sugar with a culture of various bacteria and yeasts (often referred to as a SCOBY: Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). Originally marketed as non-alcoholic beverages, testing has shown that most are actually over 0.5% alcohol — so they’re now in the microbrew category.
