About TheBu Kombucha
TheBu was developed in Hawaii by its founders, Gary Hawes and Ryan Mason. It was born out of their quest to develop a healthy alternative to sports drinks and supplements, designed to replenish, energize and enhance their rigorous fitness regimen. Utilizing his background in biochemistry, Gary's R&D yielded improved cultures and brewing techniques that led to an innovative new take on kombucha. Using the highest quality ingredients, handcrafted in small batches, he found that his artisan approach yielded a drink that was not only healthy but tasted great too. TheBu is dedicated to helping people achieve a healthy balance in their life, enabling them to pursue their passions with a greater sense of fulfillment and pleasure.
