We recently announced that we are now serving kombucha on tap at our Main Street location in Longmont thanks to local favorite Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha based in Boulder, Colorado.
Aside from its refreshingly crisp flavor, this new drink has loads of other great-tasting benefits. We’ve put together a list of some of the most frequently asked questions so that you can learn more about this unique drink and give it a try the next time you are at our store!
- What is kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented tea drink that contains live probiotics and yeast that has been around for hundreds of years. It can sometimes have a very tart or sweet flavor. Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha strives to find a perfect balance between the two tastes so one is not overpowering the other.
- What are the benefits to drinking kombucha?
As stated on Rowdy Mermaid’s website, many people drink kombucha for its living microorganisms and antioxidants, which are thought to support balanced health and energy by strengthening immunity, cleansing and strengthening organs and correcting acidic PH levels.
- Is it safe to drink?
While no approved scientific studies have been performed to fully understand the effects of kombucha on the body, Rowdy Mermaid recommends enjoying it in moderation, as with most other food and beverages. Ziggi’s currently only serves the drink in its small-sized cup, however, due to the living bacteria in kombucha, it’s recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before consuming if you have any further questions or concerns.
- What makes Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha unique?
We love serving high-quality, locally-made products at Ziggi’s and Rowdy Mermaid certainly fits that criteria. Inspired by the pristine and wild landscape that surrounds us, all Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha flavors are made using organic tea, filtered Colorado snowmelt, organic herbs and locally-sourced cold-pressed fruits. In addition, each batch is handcrafted by individual brew masters and tested daily for safety and perfection. Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha is also non-GMO and has a low sugar and acid content.
- Is it available at all of your locations?
Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha is available at our Main Street location in Longmont only at this time because it is delicately poured from a tap that is next to our Nitro Cold Brew system.
- What flavors do you serve?
Because the kombucha is handcrafted based on a variety of seasonally available teas, herbs and fruits, the flavors will rotate with each new season. We are currently featuring a Ginger Beet Mint flavor.
