Have you ever seen a Whalebird? Mike and Jake, avid Kombucha brewers and the minds behind Whalebird Kombucha, hadn’t either until the summer of 2014 when their lives were changed forever. It was a foggy morning in on the Central Coast when the duo jumped into the ocean after their morning pint of Kombucha for an ordinary spearfishing excursion. While diving amidst a thick cluster of kelp, Mike saw what appeared to be a huge whale move quickly through the water, breach the surface, then disappear from view as if it sprouted wings and flew away, the only reasonable explanation. After that fateful day, they decided to dedicate their budding Kombucha brewery to the tale of the Whalebird and their mission became clear: Make the best Kombucha the world has ever seen and spread its fizzy goodness across the coast in the hope that one day the wonderful and mysterious Whalebird will be found.
Today, with the help of a small but passionate team, they handcraft an uncompromising, full-bodied Kombucha from the heart of San Luis Obispo. Whalebird Kombucha combines the rich flavor of a full-bodied, traditionally fermented Kombucha with essential oils and infused botanicals to create a wonderfully balanced, small batch brew.
Thanks in part to native strains of bacteria and yeast, Whalebird Kombucha is sessionable and refreshing while maintaining the low sugar, strong probiotic culture, and beneficial organic acid that makes
Kombucha so good. Beyond the brew, sustainability is key. The Whalebird team hopes you enjoy the taps, kegs, and growlers that can all be reused hundreds of times without creating excess packaging waste and recycle the cans which are perfect for enjoying on life’s daily adventure.
