PORTLAND, Ore. — Brew Dr. Kombucha, the country’s leading 100 percent raw kombucha brand, today announced its partnership with the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns FC for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. The partnership signifies the first sponsorship between a kombucha brand and a Major League Soccer team.
“Our kombucha aids in leading a healthy, active lifestyle, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting partner than our very own hometown athletes to help us launch our limited-edition Mint Lemonade,” said Matt Thomas, Founder and CEO of Brew Dr. Kombucha. “Both the men’s team, the Timbers, and women’s team, the Thorns, have a huge presence in Portland, and we’re excited to support them.”
The Mint Lemonade bottle, debuting as part of the partnership, will feature a limited-edition label with the Timbers logo and special log slab cap.
The partnership also marks the first time kombucha will be available at Providence Park, the home stadium for the Timbers and Thorns. A custom-built reclaimed wood cart will serve four kombucha flavors on tap during games. Brew Dr. Kombucha is a refreshing and healthy beverage suitable for fans of all ages.
Game attendees over the age of 21 will also be able to enjoy signature kombucha cocktails made with spirits from Townshend’s Distillery, Brew Dr. Kombucha’s sister company. Townshend’s Distillery is the first distillery in the world to make spirits derived from whole-leaf tea kombucha.
Brew Dr. Kombucha has been making 100 percent raw, probiotic kombucha since 2008, using the same whole leaf teas and botanicals they serve at their Townshend’s teahouses. Every bottle of Brew Dr. is packed with naturally occurring live and active cultures, and produced entirely in-house, from leaf to bottle.
