Need More S.C.O.B.Y. in Your Life? Check out Tomorrow's Kombucha Clinic at the Womens' Building
DIYers with a hippie-granola bent may be interested in tomorrow's Kombucha! class, presented by Urban Kitchen SF and held at the Women's Building (3543 18th St. at Guerrero). Kombucha is a fermented quote-unquote wellness beverage thought to contain helpful active enzymes and other good-for-you nutrients. Sweetened tea or tisane is brewed, using a S.C.O.B.Y., the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that transforms the tea into a bevy allegedly chock-full of goodness.

This blogger has sampled several types of commercial kombucha drinks, and has usually found them to be a refreshing, slightly herbaceous, and tangy alternative to, say, a normal cuppa joe. We feel healthier already! The Kombucha! class begins at 7 p.m. and costs $45, which includes take-home supplies (the aforementioned S.C.O.B.Y.). Sliding scale pricing is available, and spots are on a first come, first served basis. For information or to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
