Our family wants to bring our organic brewed root beer, seasonal kombucha and living soda alternatives to you!

Our mission has always been to craft superior health-promoting beverages with a taste that can appeal to everyone. Our products include organic kombucha, organic brewed sodas, and "living" probiotic sodas.

ABOUT US We are truly a family-run business and we (mom – Deb, brother – Jack, and sister – Meghan) currently handle all aspects of our kombucha brewery and business.

We sell six flavors of bottled organic kombucha as well as a seasonal flavor of kombucha on tap. Our kombucha is available at 30 locations across Iowa.  Customers find our products to be “light,” “refreshing,” “addictive,” and "better than the other brand.”

Our newest product, and the first in our line of organic brewed sodas, is Jack's Real Root Beer -- a delicious, not-too-sweet organic root beer, brewed with herbs, roots and spices. Unfortunately this root beer is only available on tap... at one location... in the middle of Iowa.

THE NEXT STEP. GETTING OUR ORGANIC BREWED ROOT BEER, NEW SEASONAL KOMBUCHA & LIVING SODA TONICS TO YOU.

It's time to scale-up and branch-out! Three years ago we started with a local kombucha co-op where members could pick up their weekly supply of kombucha in re-useable flip-top bottles. Within a few months, we had outgrown our co-op and built a commercial processing kitchen. Shaktea Kombucha is now USDA certified organic and available at 30 retail market locations across Iowa.  

We have friends, family and stores requesting our products in Chicago, Asheville, even as far as San Francisco.  We are running this kickstarter campaign to bring Jack's Real Root Beer and other new soda alternatives and special kombucha flavors to you (especially our friends and family in CHICAGO!!).

NEW FLAVORS & FORMULATIONS
We have new flavors! Grapefruit hibiscus, blood orange, and local elderberry kombucha. Plus star anise water kefir, and a brewed cola, It's all part of our next phase and this kickstarter project.

WITH YOUR HELP We'll be building a new facility with 6 fermenters, a large boil kettle, labeling machine, bottling line.  The money you donate to our kickstarter campaign will allow us to bottle up our kombucha at a much faster rate, and FOR THE FIRST TIME, allow us to bottle up our organic brewed root beer so you can purchase it wherever you purchase our Shaktea Kombucha... and beyond!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Getting our new facility up and running may take longer than we hope - with construction delays or equipment delivery delays. We will work hard to stay on our timeline so we can deliver rewards and product to market as quickly as possible. We will keep you posted if we encounter any delays.
