What’s the point? Why do we make kombucha? How did you get into kombucha?
These are common questions I get asked, usually during in-store samplings, and they’re great questions! For our first ever blog post here at LSK I want to give a little background about why we do what we do.
When I was working construction for my dad during my time down at the U of M, I drank Red Bull like it was going out of style just to make it through 80+ hour school/work weeks. One day that all changed when a chiropractor introduced my dad and I to kombucha.
I was immediately hooked and began home brewing with my Mom. With lifting, jujitsu and construction as huge parts of my life, I wanted a kombucha that wouldn’t weigh me down with artificial carbonation or sweeteners, but couldn’t find anything on the market that met that need. As we talked with other people we knew, we found this to be a common theme. We also found many people couldn’t stomach most of the kombucha on the market and thought it tasted “nasty foot water.” (Gross I know, but hey, not my words). This just bothered me because I knew how good kombucha could taste, and more importantly, how good it is for our bodies.
As we thought about turning our passion for kombucha into a business, one of the biggest factors in actually going for it was knowing we could help people with our brew. My entire family is truly passionate about helping others and we were pumped by the idea that we would be able to help people live healthy lives through something we make.
So, we launched LSK in 2014 with that as our mission - to help people live healthy lives. As we continue to grow, we are constantly learning how amazing kombucha is, how amazing people are, and how we truly are making a difference in people’s lives. We’ve seen countless people who say they don’t like kombucha give LSK a try and love it! That’s why we do what we do. We want to give people a healthy beverage that’s easy to drink.
