Our Autumn Brew is Here!

We’re happy to share our newest seasonal tonic, Spiced Apple, with you.

Spiced Apple Autumn Booster

Making a new brew is akin to birthing a new baby.  You lovingly adore it the minute it’s created and can’t wait to see what it does in the world.

We really thought deeply about what signifies the beginning of a new season, specifically Autumn, and what kind of Brew could capture feelings of warmth, comfort, earthiness…and of course good health.

To us, nothing signified the Fall season more than leaves falling off the trees, the school year starting and warm apple cider.  To that end, we selected an array of crisp, mouth-watering apples, aromatic spices like nutmeg, allspice, and star anise, and cleansing burdock root.  We then added  it all to to our fiery base of all-natural fruits, vegetables, and herbs and let is steep for weeks in our raw, organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

The end result?  The perfect Autumn tonic.

From a health and wellness standpoint, this blend is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. The aromatic spices help with digestion, sleep, and cognitive functioning.

Remember, all you need is a tablespoon a day.

Well look at us!  We not only moved into our new kitchen but we organized it too.  I’m so impressed with our crew!  Check out some pictures below.

We are sharing the space with some amazing other companies – the Bitter Housewife folks, who make phenomenal exotic bitters.; Eliot’s Nut Butters, which are grown up peanut butters with all sorts of amazing flavorings (Spicy Thai, etc); Clutch Coffee Roasters, whose scent fills me with delight the whole time I’m there!

We’re excited to get some good work done here.

New Day. New Stores.

It’s been a while since we’ve featured some of the new stores where you can find Fire Brew.  They really run the gamut, which I love!  Here are just a few.

A chain of healthy markets in the Bay area, New Leaf.

A luxurious spa in downtown Portland, Knot Springs.

A local gem on the coast of Oregon, Sweet Shop.

I love that Fire Brew pops up in unexpected places and is versatile enough to be in so many different kinds of environments.

Thank you everyone for trusting us with your gut!  🙂

Anatomy of a Start Up: The Kitchen Chronicles

Well, we did it!  We made the leap from our comfortable nest at Kitchen Cru over to a new kitchen on 181st Street!   We are really, really excited about this move.  We have more space to spread out, an area for shipping and receiving, shelves that hold all our supplies and our own pallet shelf!!  YES!

The crew was amazing!! The planning went so well that it took us less than 2 hours to move about 5,000 lbs of Brew and a bunch of other equipment. Props to the Ex Novo guys for jumping in and making it all happen.

Being part of Fire Brew and its growth has been quite a ride.   Moving into this kitchen is just another sign post for us to keep doing what we’re doing, continue to work hard and have faith that if you build it, they will come.

Thanks for all your support.
