Summer time is my favorite time for Shandies. NessAlla was fortunate enough to be featured in the Cap Times article non-traditional shandies. For about 3 years or more, I can’t remember when I started, I have been drinking kombucha with beer. 1/2 & 1/2. They are pretty much my two favorite beverages and so putting them together was a fun experiment that I have never ended. I have a tendency to enjoy the flavors of beers with a high alcohol content. MAN! WHY do they have the best taste? I can only drink like 2 or maybe 3 before I’m too toasted to form coherent intelligent sentences. That is, I think I can normally form coherent-ish sentences….hmmm Any who, I decided to add kombucha to these robust delicious brews and….oh man. That was it! For me, I found that when I did kombucha 1/2 & 1/2 with my beers I could drink more and still remain pretty cognizant. Plus it was delicious. I’m a hop head…yeah, yeah, I know some of you are over it, but I’m not. I do IPA’s, APA’s, and just about anything with a hop dominant with my booch. They go with just about any flavor.
The Isthmus dropped by and profiled our Kombucha craft brewing operation last week. Here’s a taste of what Linda Falkenstein had to say about NessAlla: Different kombucha brews can taste as different from each other as ginger ale does from applejack. NessAlla makes four flavors – a basic oolong, passion fruit, lemongrass-ginger and blueberry – along with a changing seasonal special flavor.
