Fire is Spreading!

We are spreading our wings…and our fire!

I always get asked what the plan for Fire Brew is.  The truth is, we just want to keep making cool, fun, sexy health products that people want to buy.  Anything else beyond that is gravy.

So, pick up a bottle of our Brew, tell your friends about it and let us know where else you want to see it.  Let’s do this together!

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.

Fire Brew Out and About All Weekend!

Join Us, Won’t You?

Along with the sprouts, bulbs, and buds of Spring, our event schedule at Fire Brew is blooming this weekend!

As you may have read in a post from earlier this month, we will be at Ag Fest this Saturday and Sunday, April 29th and 30th. It is going to be a wildly fun time, focused on helping families understand where their food comes from and how Oregon benefits from such a rich agricultural bounty! For more info and tickets check out their website!


Farmers market
Who doesn’t love a Farmers Market?!

Also on Saturday, April 29th, you can catch us at both the Hollywood Farmers Market and Bumble Spring Emporium and Plant Sale. The Market is always a blast, absolutely spoiling us all with the freshest produce direct from the farmers! Bumble Spring Emporium, presented by Go Forth Culture, brings out the latest and greatest talent on the garden, wellness, creative, and food scenes of Portland – come experience something new!


On Sunday, April 30th, join us at the PDX Flea + Food! Hosted on the corner of SE 6th and Salmon, this happening flea market always dazzles on the last Sunday of the month. Come celebrate Spring, shop for rare and creative goods, and obviously have a Fire Brew shot with us!

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.

Happy Holidays from Mind Your Manna

With the holidays season underway I’ve been a bit reflective.  One thing I am sure about, though my life has gone through many challenging changes this year, is that this has by far been one of the best years of my life making Fire Brew. I feel blessed to have found something that I am passionate about and feel so good about sharing! And my crew! They just rock. The same goes for all our customers, from every person I’ve spoken to at the Farmers Markets to shop owners who have taken a chance on our fiery health tonics.  THANK YOU!

Here are some pictures of our awesome crew in the kitchen:

Musings from Fire Brew

It’s been a long week. Whether you’re political or not, there’s no denying that what went on with the election this week, and the past two years gearing up for it, was unprecedented. Personally, I am now taking a breath and have my fingers crossed for the best. But, man, I’m exhausted from it.

Luckily, we have Fire Brew that needs attention and keeps us inspired. We love more than anything making a product that heals and brings people comfort. Our aim is to continue doing this work so that we can be part of a bigger picture of health and wellness. Please let us know your experience with our product so we can continue to serve your needs in the best way possible.

In the mean time, here’s some new ways you can find us:

Spreading Fire (in a good way)

This weekend was busy. It was my first ever “trade show,” VegFest, and I had no idea what to expect. So many questions like…how much product do I bring? do I need help? where do I load my stuff into? Then there’s the existential questions like, will people even like the products? are they too spicy? do they taste good? But somehow, despite all the questions, it all comes together in end (though I could have lived without the flat tire on my way into the convention center).


We are in some new stores! Have you ever been to Tender Loving Empire? A great store! If you love handcrafted, small batch gift types of things, from cool jewelry (fact: that was the word I lost to in the camp spelling bee 5th grade summer) to baby gifts to hand-made health products — this is your place!

Another stop to find Fire Brew if you’re in the Gorge…head to Farm Stand in the Gorge. A great spot to get all your seasonal produce and picnic needs when you go on those awesome hikes in that area! Here’s the owner, Rob, sampling Fire Brew to a friend of mine, Amy, who just happen to pop into the store one random day. Small world!

Fire Brew Out and About

Yes, it’s almost October. Admittedly, Fall is my favorite season. I love the changing colors on the trees, the coziness of the weather, dinner parties and hunkering down in front of a fire.


Speaking of fire (I swear, that was not an intentional lead in), we’re going to be around a bunch this upcoming season in both stores, markets and fairs.

For those wondering where you can find us amongst your travels, you can see where we’re located here.

If you’re interested in checking us out live and in person, you can find us at the following upcoming events.

Hope to see you all soon!

Wow – can it be August already??

Say it isn’t so? I’ve been meaning to hop on here to write an update about our health tonics but we’re so busy with our heads in the Brew it’s been hard to come up for air! We hope you guys have been getting out there and enjoying summer and doing all the things the season brings – from jumping in lakes, to flying kites, to sitting by a campfire or two!

Besides making Fire Brew, we’ve spent most of our time at food “crop ups” and Farmers Markets so we can’t really complain. We’ve also been lucky enough for a number of new establishments to take a chance on us and our curiously strong (wait a minute, I think that’s been used before but it’s true!) health tonics.

We have a couple of new blends coming out soon so watch for them. Post some pictures you have with the Brew and let us know; we’ll pop you a free 2 oz bottle in the mail! In the meantime here are a few updates pictures! Thank you to everyone!!
