We know Dublin is famous for drinks, but generally not those of the healthy disposition, and no, Guinness being good for you doesn’t count. But Dublin Kombucha is changing that. Dublin Kombucha is brewed in Stoneybatter by Laura Murphy. I had it in The Fumbally for the first time on Saturday after hearing people such as Aoife McElwain talking about it for a while on Twitter. And it’s delish, a great balance of fruitiness and just enough sweetness not to take away from the distinctive refreshing flavour, served very cold.

Unsurprisingly, DBKB is the first kombucha tea microbrewery in Ireland. There’s more info here from Saturday’s newspaper about who’s stocking it, but if you can’t wait to try it, DBKB delivers, with a four-pack a week costing €10. I love the idea of someone starting a company as niche and local as this and coming up with a quality product. Rock on.
