DirtyBucha Sunshine

The Bucha of Byron, makers of premium kombucha in Byron Bay, have recently launched The Dirty Bucha – Australia’s first kombucha and premium spirits range. To help showcase both offerings, the doors of the former Stone & Wood brewery (now known as The Bucha Shed) will be open this summer for tours and tastings.

Located in Byron’s Arts & Industry hub, alongside the likes of hip brands Spell, Creature Yoga, All Press Coffee and Rowie, The Bucha Shed has been producing top quality kombucha for sale across Australia over the past four years.

Founders Paul Tansley, Cam MacFarlane and James Mackinnon – who left behind careers working for some of the world’s biggest beverage brands to work on this passion project – say the recent launch of The Dirty Bucha has been the catalyst to open the doors to the public, and offer people a full kombucha experience.

‘We’re excited about giving people the opportunity to see what our Bucha and Dirty Bucha is all about,’ says Tansley, a Byron Shire local. ‘We want people to touch, taste and take part in the brewing process, have some fun and enjoy a few tasting paddles.’

Produced in partnership with Stone & Wood brewers, The Bucha Shed tap-list will include:

• Dirty Bucha: Botanical Gin & Lemon Myrtle Kombucha, Premium Vodka & Tropical Kombucha

• Bucha of Byron Kombucha: Original, Lemon Myrtle, Ginger and Tropical

• Sneaky Bucha: Beer & Kombucha

• Ongoing innovative and experimental flavours

The Bucha Shed is also available to hire for events and private functions.

If you can’t get to the Bucha Shed in Byron, the Dirty Bucha is now available nationally in BWS stores, and The Bucha of Byron is available nationally in 7-Eleven stores.
