About Brew Dr:
In 2006, our founder Matt Thomas started Townshend’s Tea Company. Two years later, we began making kombucha in the basement of our first teahouse, and it got so popular we decided to bottle it!
Today, Brew Dr. Kombucha operates from a 50,000 sq ft brewery in Tualatin, Oregon, and our products are sold in all 50 states and across Canada. In addition, we have expanded our horizons to launch Tranquil, a line of CBD kombucha, and Uplift, a line of energizing yerba mate beverages.
You may have met our mascot, Otis the sloth, who shows up under the cap of every bottle of Brew Dr. Kombucha. He inspires our motto: “Can’t rush the good stuff.”
