Full Sail Brewing's KYLA Hard Kombucha is Fermented to 4.5% ABV

Kombucha is an ancient fermented tea beverage that has trace amounts of naturally occurring alcohol but it is usually not enough for the drinks to be recognized as alcoholic—Full Sail Brewing is now setting itself apart with KYLA Hard Kombucha, which is fermented to 4.5% alcohol by volume.

Just like regular kombucha, the making of the drink calls for fermenting tea and sugar with a living culture called a SCOBY, also known as a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. The 100-calorie drink is packed with live cultures and is being introduced in flavors like Ginger Tangerine and Hibiscus Lime.

With the rise of the no- and low-alcohol movement, many consumers are turning to low-ABV products, as well as new kinds of drinks that are interesting enough to substitute other popular options.
