2nd Annual Kombucha Kup & KKON People’s Choice Awards
KBI’s Second Annual Kombucha Kup Awards of Excellence is your opportunity to go head to head against dozens of the most passionate commercial brewers and encourage excellence in each others’ brews. Compete to take home the Gold in one of 5 different categories. Sign up today! Login for member pricing.
Those who submit entries for the Kombucha Kup will receive free testing of their product from our Silver Kombucha Kup Sponsor – Cultured Analysis. Plus we are doing onsite sensory testing with Draught Lab and Metro State University Beverage Analytics Lab– you will be eligible to submit samples for our research project. The goal is to see if we can create a KSU or “Kombucha Sweetness/Sourness Unit” so we can help consumers find the right Kombucha flavor profile for them.
In addition to the judged portion of the show, we will be including the opportunity to compete at KombuchaKon 23 in our “Best of Show” categories for those who bring samples to share during the World’s Largest Kombucha Bar at the Trade Show. Together our community will unite around quality to reward innovation for categories like #faveflav, best packaging design, and most original concept.
