On Wednesday, February 8th, Wild Tea Kombucha and Wild Rose Brewery are launching their limited edition “Blushing Brew” just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s a blend of hibiscus, rose petal and juniper berry kombucha combined with Wild Rose Brewery Cowbell sour, which makes a colourful, drinkable and unique brew. The result is a flavour that is a bit tart, has a nice earthy tone with a touch of sweetness.
I enjoy supporting local businesses, especially Alberta based ones, so I’ve partnered with Wild Rose Kombucha to help promote this delicious blend while it lasts.
The name Blushing Brew stems from the natural blush rose colour of the drink. A healthier alternative than regular beer, the kombucha adds probiotics and digestive enzymes that help maintain a healthy gut. While it has built a cult following among natural health circles, kombucha is fairly new to the public stage. In simple terms, kombucha is a naturally energizing, lightly effervescent fermented tea.
“We’re very excited for our customers to try out the unique flavor profile in this blend,” says former Canadian Olympic Team Member in Bobsled and Wild Tea Kombucha founder Emily Baadsvik. “It’s a nice light and zesty sipping beer that pairs easily with seafood and poultry dishes.”
Blushing Brew is only available in draft form in Calgary in limited quantities. For the full list of restaurants carrying Blushing Brew and to learn more about Wild Tea Kombucha and Wild Rose Brewery, please visit their websites at www.wildsparklingtea.com and www.wildrosebrewery.com.

Fresh and delicious I loved the taste of the Blushing Brew. It’s hard to believe it’s 5% alcohol content as you can not taste any beer.
