Hard Kombucha for Delivery or Pickup

The Instacart guide to alcoholic kombucha products

As the popularity of drinking the fermented tea beverage known as kombucha increases, so do the questions about what it is, how it's made, and its alcohol content. Although kombucha is fairly new to people living in the United States, drinking this refreshing, fermented beverage has been in practice for thousands of years. The process used to make kombucha is similar to the processes used to make products such as yogurt and kimchi.

Since the process of making kombucha involves fermentation, the beverage naturally contains alcohol. However, the drink normally only contains trace amounts of 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) or less. This means that regular kombucha is safe for anyone to drink, including children. If you prefer a little kick in your drink, kombucha can be made with a higher alcohol content. To obtain an increased ABV, the fermentation process will look a little different.

All kombucha is made using yeast, sugar, and tea, but to make the drink more alcoholic than normal, these ingredients are altered. First of all, alcoholic kombucha is made with more sugar. Secondly, it's made with different or added yeast. Finally, the fermentation period will be longer. Typically, kombucha contains live bacteria known as probiotics, which help keep your digestive system healthy.

Currently, there is some debate about whether or not alcoholic kombucha offers the same levels of probiotics as its less alcoholic counterpart, but choosing this product over beer or other hard alcohol options is definitely a better choice. The reason is that it contains less sugar and has fewer calories. Of course, this will depend on the brand.

FAQs about alcoholic kombucha

Regular kombucha is sold as a nonalcoholic beverage even though it contains trace amounts of alcohol, so anyone can enjoy it. Alcoholic kombucha is only available to those over the age of 21. Additionally, anyone who shouldn't consume alcohol, such as pregnant women or people taking certain medications, should avoid drinking alcoholic kombucha.

Regular kombucha can be good for the digestive system thanks to the probiotics it contains, and some of those benefits may carry over to alcoholic varieties. However, because this beverage is alcoholic, it shouldn't be treated as a health food product. Always drink responsibly, and take advantage of Instacart by having your alcoholic kombucha delivered to you by an Instacart shopper!
