Remedy's Fresh Twist On Ginger Beer

Here at Remedy, we're all about shaking fizzy drinks for good and guess what? We're doin' it!

Remedy Ginger Beer is our fresh twist on your old school favorite, reinvented for today’s healthier times.

We're making it right and reclaiming fizzy drinks for what they’re meant to be - refreshing drinks, traditionally fermented with real ingredients in small batches.

And just like the rest of our tasty Remedy bevvies, Remedy Ginger Beer is live cultured with no sugar, for real.

WTH's a live cultured Ginger Beer?
Remedy Ginger Beer comes from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha BUT it's NOT kombucha! Amazing! Minds blown!

Think of Remedy Ginger Beer as the perfect bevvie if you aren't quite ready to jump on the booch train but you want to make some healthier swaps in your diet. We get it. Baby steps. 

While Remedy Kombucha is made with tea, Remedy Ginger Beer is made with organic ginger juice brewed with our Remedy live culture to ferment out all of the sugar before adding our real ingredients including spices and botanicals to create a brand new take on Ginger Beer that's better for you! 

Why should I choose a live cultured Ginger Beer over a regular fizzy?
Made with live cultures, Remedy Ginger Beer is positively jammed with goodies for your mind, body and gut! Remedy's live cultured Ginger Beer offers a real, tasty alternative to sugary soda making it easier and tastier to reach for the right stuff!

Live cultures can help support gut health by:

  • Increasing the diversity of your gut flora – these are the good bugs that live in your gut to get things working as they should
  • Preventing the growth of bad bugs that make you sick
  • Supplying billions of microorganisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which the healthy bacteria in your gut use as a food source to produce important metabolites for good health


Organic acids also known as short chain fatty acids (SFCAs) can:

  • Provide an energy source for the good bacteria in your gut
  • Help to regulate appetite
  • Stabilise blood sugar levels
  • Regulate cholesterol
  • Like live cultures, also help prevent overgrowth of bad bugs in your gut


Contains no sugar, for real:
The beauty of Remedy Ginger Beer is that although it's made with organic ginger juice which naturally contains sugar, all the sugar is eaten up by the live cultures during fermentation to maximise those amazing organic acids. Remedy brews out ALL of the sugar, and we test every batch to make sure.

Organic: Remedy Ginger Beer is certified organic, providing a natural energy kick without crash and burn of sugar and caffeine highs.

Tempting...but what do they taste like?
Big bang tang! This is how Ginger Beer is meant to be. Real ginger for fiery, fresh, full-on flavor and warmth.

When can I drink Remedy Ginger Beer?

You’re a newbie:
Not ready to jump on the booch train? Think of Remedy Ginger Beer as your gateway to the delicious world of tasty, live-cultured bevvies. We get it, sometimes you need to take baby steps.

Sub out a traditional soda: The crisp, fresh flavors of Remedy Ginger Beer makes it a perfect swap for sugary soda. 

Reach for the right stuff and swap out juice: While we use real, organic ginger juice in our Remedy Ginger Beer, all the sugar is brewed out making this bevvie a super fresh swap for traditional sugary fruit juice. 

Kids' birthday parties: Notorious for sugar highs and lows, avoid the kiddie crash ’n’ burn and opt for healthy, live cultured Remedy Ginger Beer at their next birthday party. Our fun size 8.5oz cans are just right for little hands.

Mix it up: Giving booze a break? Remedy Ginger Beer is a great option to take to BBQs, parties and picnics instead. But if you ARE imbibing, Remedy Ginger Beer also makes a great mixer.

Where can I find Remedy Ginger Beer?
Remedy Ginger Beer is available online at remedydrinks.com and via Amazon.


Remedy Good Energy is here!

An energy drink that’s all good? All rrrriiiiiight!

What’s that? An energy drink that’s good for you? Heck yes! This brand new, live cultured fizzy from Remedy is a kombucha-based energy drink, containing all the gut goodness and benefits of kombucha with the added good vibes and good energy buzz of raw green coffee bean and ginseng for a smooth, enduring energy kick minus the nasties. 


Why’s it so good for you?

Made with a base of Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Good Energy is packed with polyphenols, live cultures and organic acids.

For a smooth, enduring energy kick we’ve added a few extra goodies including:

Green coffee bean to deliver a clean caffeine boost. Boo ya!
Ginseng:  For the win! Ginseng is known for its naturally energising properties. Double down on that!

Remedy Good Energy doesn’t contain any sugar, crazy unsafe levels of caffeine (more on these though later), guarana, or anything artificial. We’re making it right with a drink that delivers a sustained natural energy boost without the crash, jitters or guilt that can come from more traditional energy drinks loaded with sugar and chemicals.


Where does the energy come from?


It’s all around you. Nah. JK. Good Energy Blackberry contains around 60mg of caffeine per 8.5oz can. A cup of instant coffee sits at around 80mg of caffeine. Other energy drinks contain around 80mg per 250ml can. Ours has just a bit less, but without the insane sugar load or any artificial nasties. We know what we’d rather drink!


Soooo….what does it even taste like?

Remedy Good Energy is fizzy, super refreshing. It's plump & juicy, bursting with goodness!


How on earth do we make this goodness?

Remedy Good Energy comes from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha and is made using  the same live kombucha culture from the original homemade brew that our founders Sarah and Emmet nurtured back in the day.

Brewed the old school way, all the sugar is brewed out, leaving a live cultured drink with no sugar, for real! We then add green coffee bean, ginseng and all-natural flavours to dial it up to a whole new level for an all-natural energy drink that’s better for you!


When can I drink it?

In the AM: Remedy Good Energy is the perfect fizzy to put a pep in your step first thing. Chock full of live cultures, polyphenols and vitamins, try it for a fruity start to your day.
The 3pm slump: It’s a thing. Instead of reaching for a cheeky chocolate or soft drink, why not try a Remedy Good Energy and do the right thing by your mind, body and gut! Healthy = tasty with Remedy. No guilt goodness for your gut right here!
You’re busting a gut at work or play: You’re out and about trying to get ‘it’ done or pulling a late one because you’ve got an exam or work presentation. Reach for the Remedy Good Energy we say!
Sub out a traditional energy drink: Got the jitters from one too many? We get it, we’re no saints either but try a Remedy Good Energy instead and see how you go…guaranteed you’ll be feelin’ good vibes only.


Where can I buy it?

Remedy Good Energy is available on Amazon and online at remedydrinks.com.

Stock up on your old school faves and discover our newbies because you'll be jonesing for a Remedy once you do!

 

But why choose Remedy? 

We know you've heard of other kombucha brands, but we follow a traditional method of making our booch here at Remedy. It involves a natural fermentation of sweet tea with a live culture (aka 'good bacteria'), made in small batches and long-aged brewed for 30 days, using only the best natural ingredients. The result is a sparkling drink with sweet and sour flavors that is naturally free from sugar, and chock-full of antioxidants, live cultures and organic acids. Trust us - you can TASTE the quality. 

 

Every single batch of Remedy uses a descendent of the first culture that our founders Sarah and Emmet Condon started with on their kitchen counter, resulting in an extremely strong and healthy live culture within each drink. This is one of the key reasons that, unlike some kombucha brands, Remedy doesn't have to be stored in the fridge – and why you'll find it in the soda aisle at your local supermarket. We're also low in calories and the perfect pick-me-up without any of the nasties! 

 


What is Kombucha?

We’ve all been there. That awkward feeling when everyone else is all over something, and you have a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y no idea what they are on about... kombucha what? You wanna ask, but you know it’s too damn late.

We get it. Which is why we are here with the definitive guide to the question: what on earth IS kombucha? 

Remedy Nutritionist, Jacqueline Alwill explains, in a nutshell, kombucha (often lovingly referred to as “booch”) is fermented tea.

The traditional method of making kombucha – which we follow at Remedy – involves a natural fermentation of sweet tea with a live culture. The live culture is known as a SCOBY, which stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast.

The result is a sparkling drink with sweet and sour flavours that contains the goodness of live cultures, tea polyphenols and organic acids. Better yet, it’s downright delicious! You can even brew your own booch at home – Remedy recipe   here. 

Now, before you go passing it off as a fad, you should know that it’s believed that kombucha originated in China around 2000 years ago. People around the world have been making and enjoying kombucha for thousands of years, particularly throughout Eastern Europe and Asia. Find out more about the history of kombucha   here.

At Remedy, we make our kombucha according to the same ancient traditions as the origins of kombucha. Long-aged brewed and FULL of the good stuff. In fact, Remedy started out on our founders’ Sarah and Emmet Condon’s kitchen bench, and we are still brewing with the same live culture they first started out with!
