An Ode to Fire Brew

This past weekend was a wonderfully busy one, as we had the opportunity to see many of you out and about at 5 different events in Oregon! While the whole Fire Brew crew deserves tons of cheer, a special shout out goes to Nicki our Fulfillment hero! After rocking and rolling all weekend, ensuring shots and smiles for all, she thought up a little poem while on a peaceful stroll before our Monday morning meeting…

 

 

Fire Brew.
Fire Brew.
The cold and the flu, they run from you.
A sip a day,
Keeps the aches away.
Fire,
Fire Brew!

Heavenly Horseradish

Fresh Horseradish Fire Brew

As Potent as it is Powerful

It was once remarked to the Olympian deity Apollo that Horseradish was worth its weight in gold. For thousands of years, the leaves and roots of this perennial plant were harvested for medicinal and culinary usage. As such, this week begins the Passover tradition in Judaism, which means many observing the holiday will find Horseradish at their dinner table.

Horseradish is a low-fat, high flavor ingredient which packs a serious punch of Vitamin C. The main chemical compound in Horseradish also fights foodborne
bacteria and pathogens (such as E. Coli or Listeria) and is responsible for the pungent but invigorating taste you’ve come to know.

A little goes a long way, which is why we’ve put a small but meaningful serving of fresh Horseradish in our Fire Brew.Fresh Horseradish 2 FireBrew

Wishing you a Happy Monday, and a Happy Passover,
Love,
The Fire Brew Crew

Garlic, a Powerhouse Ingredient!

An Age-Old Cure All

One of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, Garlic belongs to a family of flora distinguished by its pungent aroma and taste.

Garlic cloves health
Cloves of Garlic

Though its role in the battle against vampires is still open to interpretation, Garlic has been used as a remedy of sorts for over 5000 years (per ancient Sanskrit documentation). During World War I it was even applied to wounds in order to cleanse, treat, and heal – earning Garlic the nickname ‘Russian penicillin’ because of its antibacterial properties.

Garlic is a bountiful source of Vitamins C and B6, and also minerals including phosphorous, calcium, potassium, iron and copper. It helps improve heart health, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, support blood flow as an anti-coagulant, and even reduce the risks of cancer.
Garlic for health Fire Brew
Raw, fresh garlic in every shot!

Garlic is a prolific member of our Fire Brew recipes, and for good reasons. This daily dose of raw, fresh Garlic nourishes even more than you may have originally thought. Last but certainly not least, it is a key player in creating the unique and explosive flavor you can expect from a shot of your favorite Fire Brew!

The Ag World

Oregon Ag Fest 2017
Oregon’s Ag Fest

Oregon Ag Fest 2017

As the month of April waits for us just beyond tomorrow’s sunset, so too does this year’s Ag Fest. As a two-day celebration and convention for Oregon’s agriculture world, Ag Fest brought in over 20,000 visitors last year. The hosts of the event would say,

Our two-day event, aimed to help families better understand where their food, fiber and flora come from, is a unique learning experience, where hands-on exhibits make learning about Oregon’s vast agricultural industry educational and entertaining.

The Fire Brew Crew will be there to show off our premium health tonics, but we’d love to see you and your loved ones too! The Ag Fest will take place on Saturday April 29th and Sunday April 30th, and will be free for children 12 and under. Check out their website for more information, ways to get involved, and even a coupon for adult admissions!

As always with love,

A Toast to Turmeric

 

Raw and ground turmeric
A Love Poem for Turmeric From the Fire Brew Crew

 

Three cheers to this meritorious dream plant,

A popular player in the world of the supplement;

 

You’d think this spice a recent uproarious trend,

But age-old uses in eastern medicine have no end;

 

A cousin of Ginger, with its iconic orange-yellow hue,

Aromatic and savory, with so many benefits too;

 

Anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, and more,

Relief for stiffness, fatigue, and pain, so you can be less sore;

 

Purification of the blood, and remedies for respiratory strain,

Treatment for a cough, so you can breathe easy once again;

 

Not many other substances can cross the blood-brain barrier,

But lo, Turmeric is one of the few, so let it be your carrier,

 

And so, without question, the brain benefits from a daily dose,

That is why Turmeric is in every flavor of FireBrew, keep it close!

Fire Brew Clove

Our Clove brew, Turmeric included!

Trusting Your Gut with Apple Cider Vinegar

Hibiscus Fire Brew

As we gear up for an active and expansive Spring season here at the Fire Brew HQ in Portland, Oregon, it’s a good time to talk up one of the most foundational ingredients in our potent health tonic: raw, organic apple cider vinegar.

Adding a daily dose to your health and well-being regimen improves the stomach’s acidity allowing for better digestion (reducing instances of bloating and food-induced heartburn). Carbohydrates can be more effectively transformed into energy, even potentially interrupting the full absorption of unnecessary calories from breads and starches. For those with a sweet tooth, it also slows the rush of glucose in the blood stream, providing sugar-crashes with a much softer landing. Studies have also linked apple cider vinegar with lower blood pressure, balanced pH levels, and even solutions to bad breath.

Fittingly, apple cider vinegar has proven to foster more efficient nutrient absorption from the things we consume, making it the perfect base for all of our Fire Brews. The nutrient-dense selection of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices which we chop, juice, and shred in every bottle, hit their best stride because of the strong foundation we’ve laid with apple cider vinegar.

Check back soon for more reasons to keep a little Fire in your belly!

Fire Brew Out and About.

Hi! 🙂 It’s been a bit and we hope everyone had a nice holiday and is feeling energized by the new year! Hopefully, the new year brings a new sense of optimism (fingers crossed!) and new opportunities for all.

We are really excited about Fire Brew! More and more people are getting hooked on the brew’s fiery taste but also the health benefits that come with it. It is so gratifying to see return customers who tell us it’s helped them with their sore joints, digestive issues, sinus infections, etc. We also love the community aspect of the brew….hearing that people drinks shots with their friends, co workers who drink it together to perk up during the mid afternoon slump, families who boost their favorite morning smoothies with it…!

We’ve added some new stores where you can find Fire Brew. If you know of a store where you’d like to see it, shoot us a note and we’ll get on it. Thanks again for being the most awesome, loyal customers.
