Welcome

Our goal at Inspired Brews is to work within our communities to develop more thoughtful, engaged approaches to growing, buying, cooking, and ultimately enjoying our food. As a lawyer (Jennifer) and designer (Jessa), we find tangible relief from the abstract and commercial—from the temptation to disconnect and disengage—in gardening, in cooking, and in nourishing those we love. Kombucha is an age-old elixir with new potential as a handcrafted gourmet beverage. An ancient fermented tea, kombucha has been shared among families, friends, and communities for thousands of years. As a probiotic, high-enzyme beverage, kombucha has been credited with everything from improving liver health and metabolism to preventing hangovers, slowing hair loss, and curing cancer. Whatever the health effects—at the least, kombucha is significantly lower in sugar than the soda alternative and is chock full of probiotics and B vitamins—many devotees find that they enjoy a lift and improved energy from regular consumption. We have both prepared kombucha in our homes for some time, since a friend first shared the culture with us and we became enamored with its refreshing taste and feel. At first, we were satisfied with small batches and simple flavoring—orange juice, pineapple puree, and the like. Over time, we began brewing and drinking more and developing unique flavors that we love to share with our friends and families. We are excited to introduce our communities.

Process

We brew kombucha in glass barrels, using organic green and black teas and organic cane sugar. Once it is lightly carbonated and pleasantly tart, the kombucha is bottled for a second fermentation along with selected juices, herbs, and spices. The kombucha is then hand-filtered into kegs or individual bottles. We enjoy handcrafting our kombucha in small batches with unique and seasonal ingredients. Our aim is always to create distinct, high-quality, and healthful beverages that are intertwined with, and suited to, our communities.

Meet Inspired Brews – The Town Dish

by Char Nolan on April 9, 2014 Meet Inspired Brews, Philly’s Newest Small-Batch Kombucha Purveyor Kombucha is an interesting beverage, to say the least, but a few years ago, I’d never even heard of the stuff. Kombucha is an age-old elixir made from fermenting sweet tea with a “unique culture.” Some time ago, I was at a meeting where all of the attendees were sipping on this intriguing beverage. Wanting to be hep and cool, I decided to take a few swigs…but after one hearty sip, my tongue stopped in its tracks because I thought I was drinking salad dressing….

Local Loves – By Honey Grow

We keep running into a new local product everywhere we go (events at Terrain, yoga parties, etc.)! Welcome Inspired Brews’ small batch kombucha! The two owners, Jessa and Jennifer do double-duty, respectively from Philadelphia and Texas, to work within their communities to produce this lovingly brewed drink. With just the two of them, they’re starting out on a small DIY scale, hand-filtering, bottling + labeling these delicious brews. We love the beautiful aesthetic of the labels and hand-crafted packaging. Like our menu, they too are inspired by local, seasonal fruits and create fun flavor combinations. Kombucha has been called by…

The Big Picture – By Philly Food Works

Posted November 6, 2014 by Dylan Baird This week, Rebecca sat down with Jessa from Inspired Brews to talk about what inspired HER (and her partner Jen) brews. Check out the Kombucha on our online market – it’s on SALE this week! How did you and your business partner meet? We met through a church group in Dallas, TX. She had a couple of jars brewing on her counter and I whispered to my husband – “i think shes brewing kombucha!” I was already so in love with it and didn’t know you could brew it yourself at that point…
