Company/organization description (<500 characters)

Cross Culture Kombucha is a kombucha brewery and taproom that sells its brand wholesale and retail. The brand was established in 2017, with just two downtown Danbury cafes serving the bubbly, smooth and tangy kombucha. Now, the brand is being requested throughout the entire state and can be found in bottles on shelves and behind the bars and on tap at over 130 locations. Cross Culture Kombucha was founded with the mission of providing a perfectly social alternative to alcohol, as we believe that living an alcohol-free lifestyle shouldn't mean you cannot have a great drink in your hand. CCK participates in Westport Farmers Market and Fairfield Farmers Market.
