Owner: Better Kombucha
In 2015 Nancey Legg introduced Better Kombucha to the local community at a small, weekly farmer’s market. Folks showed up thirsty and began recommending it to their favorite gathering places. Based on this initial response, Nancey realized that making the beverage could be more than a hobby. So, armed with a master’s degree in Public Health and acquiring the basics of business, she decided that her commitment to wellness and her community created a great opportunity to pursue this fulltime.
As Birmingham’s first commercial kombucha brewery, Better Kombucha believes that an integral part of being better physically, mentally, and spiritually is related to what we put into our bodies, and that taking better care of ourselves makes us better people and better people make better community.
Together we are Better.
