Bear's Fruit is the only Certified Organic & Fair Trade Kombucha in the U.S. brewed with 100% whole, organic fruit - no sugary juices, flavors, powders, extracts or any other weird stuff. Fun fact: Your body can only process 10 oz of kombucha at a time, which is why Bear's Fruit in a slightly smaller bottle based on science! Proudly handmade by humans in Brooklyn.
This is a tale of two strangers who decided to quit their (pretty solid) day jobs within weeks of meeting to co-found a kombucha company. Â Seriously - thatâ€™s actually what happened. Â On one fateful night in July 2016, Chris and Amy met at a party that neither were invited to - Amyâ€™s date vanished so she was wandering aimlessly until she stumbled into Chris, who was carrying a houseplant for the host he didnâ€™t know. Chris told Amy she had nice eyes, but insisted â€œthatâ€™s not a compliment.â€ They became fast friends.
When Chris told Amy he made kombucha, she was a wee bit nervous to try, since she doesnâ€™t exactly have a poker face. Fortunately, Amy didnâ€™t have to fake it - his was the best kombucha sheâ€™d ever tasted. As it turns out, Chris cracked the kombucha code after three years of home-brewing, which he started doing as a hobby to remedy to an unfortunate wisdom tooth incident. While Chris had a day job in animation (you can thank him for all 45 of the Ice Age movies), Amy spent her career shaping some of the worldâ€™s biggest brands, including "better for you" beverages like ZICO Coconut Water. When Chris said he was selling this magical kombucha, unbranded,Â Â to a local cafe in Brooklyn, Amy knew she needed to help her new friend. She told Chris sheâ€™d be willing to walk away from her career to co-found a company together because she believed in the product, but insisted â€œthatâ€™s not a compliment.â€ Â
Thatâ€™s how Bearâ€™s Fruit came to be. It may sound crazy, but fortune favors the bold.
