CHICO — Sierra Nevada Brewery Co. has expanded its line of “Strainge Beast” hard kombuchas. Kombucha, a form of fermented tea that’s grown in popularity over the last decade, is now one of the newer beverages to have “hard” options that develop through a second round of fermentation. The recently unveiled flavors include two 100-calorie options that come in at 4% alcohol by volume: “Watermelon, Sea Salt, Lime & Mint” and “Raspberry, Golden Kiwi & Elderflower.” Also, being added to the already established lineup is “Grapefruit, Pomegranate & Cucumber,” a standard kombucha that comes in at 7% ABV. Sierra Nevada said that its line of kombucha is inspired by the brewery’s love for the art and science of fermentation blending with organic fruits and botanicals. “I’ve always been fascinated by the alchemy of fermentation,” said Ken Grossman, the company’s founder who is also a long-time homebrewer of kombucha. “It can transform high-quality ingredients into something magical.” The hard kombucha line which launched in 2020 currently has three other flavors including a “Ginger, Lemon, and Hibiscus,” “Blueberry, Acai, and Sweet Basil,” and “Passion Fruit, Hops, and Blood Orange.” “We’re so excited to get Strainge Beast hard kombucha into the hands of more drinkers, especially as we head into the summer season,” said Robin Gregory, communications director at Sierra Nevada. “Each new flavor concoction of Strainge Beast is a medley of organic fruits, herbs, and spices that is bound to feed your curiosity.” In support of the new flavors, Sierra Nevada is beginning a series of what they’re calling masterclasses for unconventional arts. One of the classes is expected to cover Venus fly trap gardening with more class announcements coming on the product line’s Instagram in June at https://www.instagram.com/straingebeast . “Strainge Beast” can be found at most grocers and at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
