Kombucha

About Us

Block5 is a small team brewing in Tauranga, New Zealand. We are here to brew top-quality naturally beneficial beverages, with a focus on taste and whole ingredients. (Local ingredients too, whenever possible!!). 

We believe that the best tasting beverages don't have to be bad for you, and that feeding your body the nutrients it desires doesn't have to be hard work. 

Our goal is pushing for better food and drink, and making the finest out of every little bit we have. 
We hope you enjoy our offerings!

  

 

 

Single Batch & Special Requests

Our brewery (aka. the brew lab) was designed so that we can consistently experiment with new recipes, and produce our favourites, side by side.

**Block5 stockists with kombucha on tap pour the best one-off batches, keep your eyes out!**

With this versatility, we also love to help out with beverages for special occasions, portable taps/mini-bar included! Weddings, special events, raging kombucha parties, big or small, all excellent ideas! enquiries@block5.nz 

  

 

  

Sustainability

 At the Brew Lab, we try to do our little part for the environment by;

  • Using renewable cardboard and paper packaging.
  • Using recyclable glass containers.
  • Keeping plastic use to a minimum.
  • Composting all bio-waste (used tea, spent fruit, old SCOBY, etc.)  and return it to the land.
  • Using energy efficient lighting, heating/cooling and process control.

As we move forward Block 5 aims to;

  • Reduce overall water usage throughout the brewing process.
  • Transition to lighter packaging methods, reducing transport cost and emissions.
  • Increase our breweries long-term energy efficiency.
  • Help contribute to local and international sustainability projects.
