Counter Culturesources ingredients from SE Florida organic farmers and growers to create beneficial, delicious artisanal probiotic ferments and elixirs; kombucha, jun, ales and brews. Since 2013 Counter Culture has reversed food regression in our community by re-introducing lacto-fermented beverages, the same beverages which sustained our ancestors for generations. Lacto-fermentation is a process whereby bacteria convert sugars and starches into acids, such as lactic acid. Most of today’s commodity drinks (root beet, ginger ale, punch) were originally prepared and preserved by lacto-fermentation, and were often used medicinally.
Every Jun and Kombucha is bottled in glass amber 64oz growlers to preserve the rich microorganisms.
Jun culture thrives on green tea and raw honey which produces a refined and delicate profile and less pungent than Kombucha.

Jun is the Champagne of Kombucha and is every bit as elegant.
Kombuchas feature triple-filtered water, local organic cane sugar and organic black tea for added potency. Once the requisite culture of bacteria and yeast is added, the sweet tea ferments for 1-4 weeks depending on desired levels of sweetness/tartness. When the kombucha is ready, a bounty of fruits, vegetables, herbs and other ingredients are added to enhance the flavor and the probiotic levels.
