Kombucha Beer Is A Thing That Exists Now Which Makes Our Guts Very Stoked

Kombucha. It’s absolutely become one of the biggest bevvies over the last couple of years, and we’ve slowly started to see boozy versions of the gut-friendly drink showing up in grog shops. Well it’s now taken another step into the sesh, because kombucha beer is a very real thing that exists.

Sure, we’re all just ignoring the fact that kombucha is made from a big slimy living culture called a scoby (which kinda looks like a blobfish, and I love them dearly), but hey nobody wants to know how the sausage is made, right?

The Sneaky Bucha is a brand new range of funky brews birthed from a collaboration between Kombucha Brewing Co and Stone & Wood, and includes a new twist on the classic Froth Whitlam.

Arriving into grog shop beer fridges (and keen eskies as the weather heats up), the Sneaky Bucha comes in three varieties of tinnies – a lager, a summer wheat beer and an extra pale ale (XPA), and apparently has like 25% less carbs than normal full-strength beers.

Now I haven’t had a chance to wrap my laughing gear around this kombucha beer yet – believe me, I will – but apparently, these bucha beers have the same energy as a humble shandy. Which, for those who are blissfully unaware, is a half-beer, half-lemonade situation favoured highly by the crusted-on blokes at country pubs.

If you haven’t had the absolute pleasure of watching an old boy order a ‘coupla shandies’ at the pub, then my friend you are missing out.

So if you wanna knock back a few precious bevingtons while keeping your guts pretty happy in all respects, you can pick up a four-pack (or a slab, if you’re keen) of these new ‘buch beers from your local BWS, Dan Murphy’s and independent bottle shops.

Cheers to that, I reckon.
