Brighter Day & Buchi Kombucha

Since Brighter Day remodeled its deli, they’ve been carrying Buchi Kombucha on tap, even offering a “filling station ” in the deli for people who want to take it home with them in reusable “growler” vessels. The service is quite popular with customers. Brighter Day chose Buchi because of their quality, interesting flavor combinations and dedication to local suppliers and to community.

More about the Buchi Story

Buchi is based in Asheville, N.C., the brainchild of two moms who found each other as part of a home school co-op. Learn more here. 

Kombucha in a Nutshell

Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from black tea and sugar, that supplies probiotics and other good stuff. It has a rich folk history and dates back to ancient China, being labeled as the “immortal Health Elixer.” It caught on in the U.S. around the 1980’s, with lots of us making kombucha in our kitchens. You can find recipes on line like this one here

There has been a resurgence in popularity in the past few years with kombucha breweries springing up all over the country and people again making the beverage in their homes. There is an ongoing debate about fermented beverages and alcohol content. Read more here.
