Like most brewers, Tom and Charlotte began brewing kombucha in 2013 in their home in Amsterdam. And so batch after batch was made. In 2015 a decision was made to start brewing commercially and the spare bedroom became a bonafide home brewery where the flavour development and research began. One year and many tastings later the feedback was in, people loved kombucha. YAYA Kombucha was officially founded in late 2016 and early 2017 the brewery was fully operational.
After moving two locations and scaling up in 2018 and 2019 we have now settled in Amsterdam’s industrial Houthavens area. We’re proud to call this 500m2 production location our home since April 2019. As we like to do everything in-house our brewery fits a unique kombucha brewing installation, fermentation area and full- automatic bottling line. We are looking forward offering tours, tastings and workshops again post-Covid times.
Tom and Charlotte simply have one goal and that is to make Europe’s best tasting kombucha. Tom: “We wanted to make something that is unique in flavour, refreshing and with the perfect sweet and sour balance”. YAYA Kombucha is a freshly brewed, unpasteurised product made with 100% Organic and real ingredients like loose leaf teas and cold-pressed juices. The team is dedicated to sourcing the best ingredients, like Organic Yuzu juice from Japan and interesting new Hop varieties.
