Our team is blazing the trail with California’s very first high alcohol kombucha.

Booch on a mission

At Boochcraft we are on a mission to inspire people to live an exceptional life. One that is bold, adventurous, and full of excitement. A life rich with meaningful relationships and a supportive community. Simply put, to live cultured. It’s not just our tagline, it’s our anthem.

Core Values

  • Quality

    Each batch of kombucha is rigorously tested through our quality control program throughout every step of the process. Our final product is tasted to ensure it meets our standards. We offer all customers a satisfaction guarantee.

     

  • Sustainability

    We compost our juice and tea scraps, wash our brewery with Dr. Bronner’s soap, use only certified organic ingredients, and source our produce from local California farms whenever possible. We are committed to finding new and innovative ways to conserve resources and limit waste.

  • Community

    True success to us isn’t measured by the amount of profit, but rather the positive impact we are making in the community. We give 1% of gross sales to nonprofits that promote sustainable food systems. We give our time, product, and any other resources we have to make the local and global community a better place.

  • Vitality

    It’s our goal to inspire you to claim your health so you can enjoy this life to the fullest. Through our beverages we hope to inspire you to pay attention to the foods you consume and where they’re sourced from, to enjoy nature, to be active, and to be connected to your community.

     

  • Fun

    It’s all about having fun! Whether we’re brewing a high quality product, helping the planet, building community, hanging out with friends, or inspiring vitality, we promise to have fun! We hope that you will join us!

Fun - Boochcraft

OUR Story

Boochcraft was founded by three friends from Ocean Beach, San Diego. They sought out to create a kombucha that tasted great, inspired connection, and was based in quality.

Seeing the need for an alcoholic beverage with integrity, they created a craft brew you could not only enjoy, but also feel good about drinking. Millions of SCOBY’s later, Boochcraft was born with a
mission to inspire vitality, support local farms, build
community and have fun along the way.
