Sierra Nevada Expands Strainge Beast Hard Kombucha Line

CHICO, California – Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is expanding the rollout of its Strainge Beast line of hard kombucha, unveiling three new bold and unique flavors, including two 100-calorie options. The new flavors include Raspberry, Golden Kiwi & Elderflower (100 calories); Watermelon, Sea Salt, Lime & Mint (100 calories); and Grapefruit, Pomegranate & Cucumber.

Strainge Beast hard kombucha is rooted in the craft brewer’s love for the art and science of fermentation. Crafted from a proprietary SCOBY culture discovered with Oregon State University, Strainge Beast combines organic ingredients and traditional brewing processes for the best possible flavor.

“I have always been fascinated by the alchemy of fermentation,” said Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman, who has long been a hobby kombucha brewer himself. “It can transform high-quality ingredients into something magical.”

This year, Strainge Beast will offer three new straingely delicious flavors:

  • Watermelon, Sea Salt, Lime & Mint (4.0% ABV, 100 calories) screams summertime, and immediately transports drinkers to the beach or the pool.
  • Raspberry, Golden Kiwi & Elderflower (4.0% ABV, 100 calories) combines a complex aroma of berries, blossoms and kiwi fruit with the tangy sweet flavor of raspberries.
  • Grapefruit, Pomegranate & Cucumber (7.0% ABV, 180 calories) mixes the crisp coolness of a cucumber with the refreshing tartness of pomegranate and grapefruit.

To celebrate this strainge release, Sierra Nevada will also kick off “Masters of Strainge”—a series of consumer masterclasses in unconventional and unique arts. The virtual classes will tap into viewers’ wild sides with topics including Venus Flytrap gardening.

“We’re so excited to get Strainge Beast hard kombucha into the hands of more drinkers, especially as we head into the summer season,” said Robin Gregory, Communications Director at Sierra Nevada. “Each new flavor concoction of Strainge Beast is a medley of organic fruits, herbs, and spices that is bound to feed your curiosity.”

The three new flavors of Strainge Beast hard kombucha are available for purchase on shelves across the U.S. now, in addition to its three original flavors: Ginger, Lemon & Hibiscus; Blueberry, Acai & Sweet Basil; and Passion Fruit, Hops & Blood Orange. Strainge Beast hard kombucha contains only the finest organic ingredients, and like Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., is a drink defined by its history of craft brewing excellence.
