Started in 2009 by husband and wife team of Tarek and Rachel Kanaan. Driven by inspiration and passion every step of the way.
Our Mission is to produce the best artisan Kombucha Tea and Kombucha Beer products on the market made with the healthiest ingredients possible. We view each and every bottle we produce as a healthy and beneficial work of art created for the community in a large bottle size (22oz & 750 ml), a single serving (12oz & 16.9oz), and in 100% recyclable kegs (¼ barrel).
We care about people. We care about spreading Love, Health and Possibility into the world. We care about local and use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We care about organic and use certified organic and fair trade ingredients in our products whenever possible.
We are about giving back by paying our workers a fair wage, supporting local non-profits in the area and minimizing our carbon footprint as much as possible.

Unity Vibration was the first Kombucha brewery nationally to release alcoholic Kombucha Tea as well as the inventors of a high-ABV, hops-infused, bourbon-barrel aged, Lambic-like Kombucha Beer with “Triple Goddess”. We invented Kombucha Beer and people love it!
Our Kombucha Beer is:
AMERICAN WILD ALE
BOURBON BARREL AGED

New Mezzanine & Barrels!
April 25, 2014
In the climate of increased demand we at Unity are expanding just a little to try to meet it. We have constructed a small new mezzanine to make more space in our very small brewery for 16 new bourbon barrels! This is one step towards increasing our ability to produce more Kombucha for the world. The next step is bringing in more investment through Localstake and we still really need your help to accomplish that. Please consider our offering and come join us on the Unity train!
The Future of Unity Vibration has Arrived
March 23, 2014
A big part of our growth strategy (lately) has been to grow our draft or on premise (restaurants, bars) presence. There has been very large demand nationally for kegs and when an establishment decides to give UV a 'handle' we have to keep them in stock or we might lose the handle. This is another part of the reason we are seeking funds - so that we can make sure to keep all of the new on premise accounts who 'pick up' Unity Vibration happy - and re-ordering! As part of this campaign, our amazing and beautiful tap handles just arrived, which will act as ambassadors and marketing specialists in bars and restaurants across the territories we are currently selling in to draw people to give Unity Vibration Kombucha a try.
See an example of our tap handles in the attached picture. Please log in to Localstake to complete your review and investment if you remain interested. We need all the support we can get to continue forward with our exciting growth.

UV Business Trip out West
February 21, 2014
Please check out our latest Facebook post below.
Our business trip out west was a smashing success! Our products are flying off the shelves out there and especially at Whole Foods.
We got the chance to connect with 3 distributors, which is crucial for our type of business, as well as to pour at an Arizona beer fest and 4 Whole Foods tastings. What a fun time! Perhaps some day there may be a UV West coast in addition to UV Ypsilanti?? We'll see...
