Portland, OR — In a first for the NBA, Brew Dr. Kombucha has partnered with the Portland Trail Blazers on a limited edition kombucha for the NBA season called Special Edition Rip City Happiness.
The kombucha will be served inside the Moda Center and at retailers throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
“Athletes at every level are paying more attention to organic and healthy diet choices,” said Matt Thomas, CEO and Founder of Brew Dr. Kombucha, in a statement. “Brew Dr. Kombucha provides tasty refreshment, while also providing probiotic health and wellness benefits, and is made entirely of 100% organic whole ingredients. It’s a drink for our time, from players, to fans, to kids playing youth sports. We’re thrilled the Blazer organization recognized this opportunity to support a healthy beverage option for its fans.”
Thomas continued, “If you had told me in 2008, when I started brewing kombucha at our NE Alberta Street Teahouse, that one day we’d have a Trail Blazers bottle, I would have never believed you. We’re very proud to be the first Kombucha offered inside an NBA stadium and represent our home team with our new Rip City Happiness collaboration.”
