Sneaky Bucha of Byron
A Lager Like No Other
Sneaky Bucha is a new breed of lager that comes with a splash of Byron Bay’s favourite kombucha. This unlikely little addition takes the edge off lager as you know it and dials the refreshment straight up to 11. Best served cold on a hot day.
SNEAKY BUCHA CRISP LAGER
We’ve combined the goodness of kombucha with the greatness of beer to create a full strength, lower carb beer.
Beer with a dash of kombucha
Yes, you read it right – we’ve combined everything you like about kombucha with everything you love about beer. It’s full strength, but lower carb.
So crack open a low carb Crisp Lager and make a toast to the things that are just meant to be.
*The Sneaky Bucha has 30% lower carbs than regular full strength beers.
The Bucha Process
Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture, known as a SCOBY – or Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast. The sugar is used up during the fermentation process so it’s very low in sugar by the time it gets to you.
How beer is made: Malt is first milled before mixing with water to create a mash, which is then filtered to create the wort. This is then boiled and the hops are added, it’s then clarified to create a clear wort. The yeast is then pitched and the magical process of alcoholic fermentation takes place in the tank where it is stored.
Kombucha: We use traditional methods to steep our tea with sugar, before adding in our ‘Mother’ or SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria & Yeast). Then the magic happens.
Beer: Beer is made with 4 simple ingredients – Water, Hops, Malt & Yeast.
Kombucha: We ferment our kombucha in a temperature controlled room to keep a consistent fermentation. During this time the SCOBY eats the sugar and increases the acid content of the tea, creating tummy-loving enzymes and probiotics.
Beer: Beer is fermented in the fermentation tank for different periods of time depending on the beer style you are creating.
Once the Bucha and beer have both finished fermenting, we then blend them together to create a full strength, low carb beer. It’s a Crisp Lager with a dash of kombucha, just waiting to be drunk. It may not realign your chakras, but it is guaranteed to be super refreshing.
