Barley’s has Kombucha on tap! We make our Kombucha, right here, at Barley’s Homebrewing Supplies. We start with organic cane sugar and quality tea, then infuse our kombucha with ingredients you’re likely to find in beer. Bring a growler for a fill or take a 12 oz cup to go. We also sell growlers and bottles of various size.

Sour Patch Lime – A lime flavoured green tea hopped with New Zealand Motueka hops. This one came out extra sour so we back-sweetened it slightly with organic cane sugar.
Orange Sasquatch – An orange black tea, fermented and hopped with Canada’s own Sasquatch hops, known for aromas of strong cream caramel, orange, dark berries and hay.
What Is Kombucha?
Kombucha (pronounced kum-boo-cha) is a living, slightly tart, carbonated tea beverage. It is low in sugar and rich in probiotics. Kombucha is made by fermenting black, green or white tea and sugar, with a culture called a SCOBY. A SCOBY is a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria & Yeast. Because it is fermented, kombucha does contain trace amounts of alcohol, however at 0.5% ABV or less, it is considered a non-alcoholic beverage.
What is Water Kefir?
Similar to kombucha, kefir (pronounced kuh-feer) is a lightly fermented beverage made by fermenting sugar water with kefir grains. Unlike a kombucha SCOBY, water kefir colonies look like small crystals! Water kefir also has many of the same positive benefits of Kombucha.
