Turning non-believers into thriving beings since 2015
Canvas Kombucha Brewing Company. It all started with a beautiful S.C.O.B.Y. and two creative entrepreneurs. Our brewer had been fermenting this tart probiotic beverage for years with some successes and a few, slightly explosive errors, too. He also had nearly a decade of fine cuisine and flavor pairing knowledge just taking up space in his mind. The pair realized that combining his knowledge and her (we can do anything) attitude, they could build a business from the ground up.
Their kitchen became a kombucha laboratory, with the pungent aroma of vinegar and tea quickly becoming acceptable... comforting. Fermenters crowded the kitchen. Bottles were ordered and the startup process quickly began. Home brew kombucha was flavored and shared with friends, family and neighbors, and the response was encouraging. "I don't usually drink that stuff, but this is so good!" became the comment of the year.
The founders moved into a yurt to redirect finances towards the new business venture. Apparently starting a business isn't cheap! Friends and family became the biggest assets to the company from business advice, financial help, donating time and resources, personal loans, sharing opinions....so much kindness and support! Thanks to all this and more, CKBC has blossomed into a healthy and profitable business that will soon look to welcome like-minded members onto its team!
The new location in the Mountain Mall offers a network of health conscious business neighbors and an excellent space for the operation to grow. Both founders are currently the only employees so hours are still limited, but always increasing! Check out our Retail Partners for other places you can find CKBC on tap, and cheers to a healthy belly and a happy palate!
"Delicious and artistic flavor combinations in a lovely atmosphere. I like to sip on a drink while admiring the work of local artists, but if you're short on time, grab a cup or growler to go. I promise you will not be disapointed!"-N. Broesel '17
"It is so wonderful to have a zero waste option for kombucha.I love tasting all the funky flavors. I especially love how surprised I was that the plain kombucha was just as tasty as the lemon-ginger-cayenne and the star anise-orange. Their plain kombucha stands on their own. Just a tad sweet, perfect carbonation content and great high-end tea flavor."-A. Menssen '17
