Alcohol Spotlight: Pulp Culture Disrupts The Alcohol Status Quo


Get Buzzed The Way Mother Nature Intended With Full Spectrum Fermentation

LOS ANGELES, June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulp Culture is thrilled to introduce a new category of better-for-you booze that's set to disrupt the definition of alcohol consumption as we know it. Officially launching today, Pulp Culture is the brainchild of two fitness-minded foodies, Brendan Brazier and Mark McTavish, who've committed themselves to the pursuit of "better" everything.

Before incubating this unprecedented beverage category, Brendan had not enjoyed an alcoholic beverage in 14 years. This all changed when he discovered 101 Cider House at his local Whole Foods Market, learned about the unrivaled production process and felt motivated to join forces with Mark to create this one-of-a-kind, Full Spectrum™ hard-pressed juice.

Pulp Culture uses 100% raw, fresh juice that naturally ferments over three months with the help of Mother Nature and nothing else. Called "wild fermentation," the result is a zero-additive, zero-sugar, bone-dry beverage with 6 billion naturally-occurring probiotics, organic acids, vitamins, and 4.9% ABV. The final touch is blending in fermented, nutrient-dense super fruits and performance-boosting botanical adaptogens. Long story short, say goodbye to hangovers and the alcohol status quo.

Each of the four carefully curated blends showcases all ingredients on the front label, providing total transparency with function-first reasoning for the inclusion of each component.

"The ambitious folks I know are committed to high-performance living and are, of course, meticulous about what they put in their body. They would never eat anything without reading the full list of ingredients and understanding how they were processed. Yet, when it comes to alcohol, they lower their standards or remove them altogether. I wasn't willing to compromise, so I hadn't consumed alcohol in 14 years before discovering natural fermentation and tasting 101 Cider's one ingredient drink (just apples). The simplicity and elegance of the solution inspired me to get involved (and start drinking again)!" - Brendan Brazier, Co-Founder

"When wild fermented beverages are enjoyed mindfully and in their natural form, they deliver the best buzz on the planet. Beyond the alcohol itself, you're getting the full spectrum of active components that combine to create a coveted "entourage effect." Until now, consumers have had limited or no access to this category of "full spectrum" adult beverages, aside from making them at home. We decided it was time to do better, put function first, and deliver the healthiest drinking experience to our consumers, whether it's a Hustle before the gym or a Restore after a big meeting." - Mark McTavish, CEO and Co-Founder

Pulp Culture retails for $14.99 per pack, which includes four 12 oz. cans of a single blend. As of today, Pulp Culture is available online at www.pulpculture.la with direct-to-consumer shipping across the United States as well as premium retailers such as Whole Foods.

About Pulp Culture: Pulp Culture is the epitome of a "better for you" beverage. Pulp Culture uses fresh, source-verified ingredients, resulting in a zero sugar, low calorie, "better for you" alcohol. Every blend contains only the ingredients seen on the front label of the can. It is naturally fermented, raw pressed juice that's sourced from local farms, and fermented for three months, yielding a naturally alcoholic and certified probiotic beverage. This drink ensures you are getting all of the benefits that Mother Nature intended: billions of live probiotic cultures, and a vast array of beneficial vitamins and nutrients found in the plants used for fermentation. Cold-pressed juice just got healthier and hangovers have officially left the building. Enjoy a drink with mother nature and get to know her wild side.

Drink Spotlight: Revive Kombucha Launches Shelf-Stable Sparkling Kombucha


Sparkling Kombucha in Cans Offers Functional Refreshment With Only 5g of Sugar and 20 Calories

PETALUMA, Calif., March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of making kombucha more accessible and convenient to consumers everywhere, Revive Kombucha™ announced today the launch of Revive Sparkling Kombucha™, a traditionally fermented, organic and shelf-stable craft brew. Available in 12-ounce cans, Revive Sparkling Kombucha is incredibly light and refreshing, with only 5g of sugar and 20 calories per can.  Each of the four unique flavors - Mango Orange, Cherry Hibiscus, Strawberry Lemon, and Citrus Ginger - contains 5 billion live probiotics at the time of manufacture to support digestive and immune health.

"Revive began with the simple idea to brew great tasting kombucha so people could kick their soda habits, just like I did so many years ago when my wife Rebekah handed me my first bottle. This is the closest we've come to meeting our original mission, as Revive Sparkling Kombucha is super tasty, yet doesn't have a lot of sugar or calories and is loaded with live probiotics," said Sean J. Lovett, Founder and President of Revive Kombucha. "Kombucha changed my life and putting this beverage in a transportable can and making it shelf stable means so many more people who are hooked on sugary sodas can more easily make the switch, without sacrifice of taste, to enjoy kombucha."

Revive maintains their innovative approach to batch brewing and natural fermentation methods with the new Revive Sparkling Kombucha line, which is nearly identical to the process of their raw and refrigerated bottled kombucha. The difference is the Sparkling Kombucha line undergoes a proprietary pasteurization process while incorporating a naturally fermented and live probiotic, DE111.  These very hardy bacteria protect themselves in varying conditions and only awaken when they hit the pH of your gut. "Our consumers are active so a portable, shelf stable can makes complete sense, yet we didn't want to stop there. We wanted to push the lower limits on sugar and calories. Our sweet spot for Revive Sparkling Kombucha is the kombucha drinker that wants a lighter version they can drink more of, and the sparkling water drinker that wants added benefits from probiotics," adds Josh Mohr, Vice President of Marketing for Revive Kombucha.

The four super tasty flavors of Revive Sparkling Kombucha, all brewed with unique kombucha cultures, include:

  • Mango Orange – traditionally fermented with a black tea brew.
  • Cherry Hibiscus – traditionally fermented with a hibiscus flower brew, and naturally caffeine free.
  • Strawberry Lemon – traditionally fermented with a unique blend of hibiscus and yerba mate brews.
  • Citrus Ginger – traditionally fermented with a ginger brew, and naturally caffeine free.

In addition to the new Sparkling Kombucha line, Revive offers an array of wildly delicious, naturally fermented, organic, non-GMO, raw, and ethically sourced kombucha available in bottles, growlers and on-tap.

Revive Sparkling Kombucha is currently available at select natural and specialty retailers in Northern California such as GoodEggs.com and Oliver's Markets. "We're currently testing in our backyard and look forward to rolling out Revive Sparkling Kombucha to a broader audience when ready," said Lovett.

About Revive Kombucha:
Revive Kombucha is a culture-driven, craft kombucha brewery launched at the Sonoma County Farmers Market in 2010 and located in Petaluma, CA. Their mission has always been to sustainably produce the best tasting kombucha using the highest quality ingredients and most innovative craft brewing techniques: from their vertically integrated brewery, to being the first to market with brewing innovations (hibiscus and ginger caffeine free brews, and other non-tea brews with coffee, yerba mate and cacao) in their product line. Revive works as hard to take care of the people and world around them as they do in brewing their kombucha. This shows in their sustainability initiatives—from their early efforts with bio-diesel delivery and award-winning Bottle Exchange program, to their current efforts with water reclamation and conservation in the brew process, and always offering living-wages and above standard benefits to employees.

Revive Sparkling Kombucha delivers functional refreshment with only 5g of sugar and 20 calories per shelf-stable can.

Yes, Fermented! And here’s why:

  • Fermentation removes anti-nutrients, like phytates and tannins, which bind to important minerals and interfere with your ability to thrive.
  • Fermentation pre-digests the food for you, making it easier to digest as you rebuild your inner ecosystem.
  • Fermentation enhances the levels of vitamins and antioxidants in food, making it more nutritious.

The Story Behind the Bottle:

In 1995, my life came crashing down when I heard that my mother, Laraine had just been diagnosed with a highly aggressive form of breast cancer. After a week of emotional turmoil, I was relieved to find out that her breast cancer had not spread and that the pungent tasting cultured tea that she had been drinking was part of the reason why.

I was incredibly touched by how Kombucha had helped my mom and was inspired to begin making it from the kitchen of my parent's house. Being only a teenager, I had no business plan, just a desire to share this gift with anybody who could benefit from it.

Fast forward over 15 years: we have grown from our humble beginnings, when I would hand-deliver my just-bottled Kombucha to local health food stores, to a full-fledged company that makes 17 different varieties of Kombucha products distributed throughout all of the U.S. Although we have experienced some incredible growth, I remain committed to expanding the company gradually and organically, never sacrificing quality for the sake of profits.

About the Company
Real kombucha tea should never be too sweet nor too sour and possess two key attributes; a mouth-feel similar to an alcoholic beverage, and a distinctive back-of-the-throat “bite”.

To “mainstream” kombucha, commercial brewers in America generally use one standard tea and add fruit juices and other ingredients prior to bottling. In 2010 the added fruit sugars were found to trigger a secondary fermentation and spike alcohol levels to as high as 2-3%, leading to all US kombucha beverages being hastily recalled and reformulated.
