Two recent articles in the Vail Daily

Posted on: January 15th, 2013 by fara

The employees of High Country Kombucha live, work & play in the Vail valley in Eagle County, Colorado.  This is not a cheap place to live, or to own a business but we do have some great perks like a valley wide newspaper that runs occasional stories about local businesses.  Check out the latest article about High Country Kombucha by clicking HERE

The second article in the Vail Daily reviewed functional beverages as a category and you can link to that article HERE

We agree that drinking sodas is ‘so last decade’ and want to point out that kombucha tea has more probiotic content than most yogurt found on the shelves.  We want to thank the Vail Daily for the exposure and hope that it encourages many who read it to try our High Country brand of kombucha tea.

Vail Turns 50 – Happy Birthday!

Posted on: December 19th, 2012 by fara

Last weekend was a big milestone for the Town of Vail and everyone at High Country Kombucha wishes them a happy 50th!  Many of us went to the concerts that took place all weekend and the fun events.  We even got free commemorative cupcakes;

Governor Hickenlooper spoke at the event on Saturday afternoon at the base of the new skier gondola.

Following the speeches, Vail had an impressive fireworks display right over the ski mountain & gondola;

Vail also handed out hot chocolate in cute little ski boot shaped mugs at the Saturday event.  Can you guess what favorite beverage I’ll be drinking out of my mug this season?

Thanks for throwing a fun party, Vail.  Congrats on 50 years.  Happy Holidays to everyone!

Spring Back 2 Vail with SNOW!

Posted on: April 13th, 2012 by fara

Every ski season in Vail, Colorado ends with a weekend full of free live concerts, pond-skimming and other fun events.  While High Country Kombucha was not a sponsor, some of us did attend the two free concerts held last night.  The first concert was Funkiphino which was a blast and the weather was good but unfortunately, we did not take any pictures.  The second concert was Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and the weather turned to snow.   I promised to post pictures the next time it snowed and I got some really good ones last night.  Here’s a picture of the snow as it first started falling, very lightly.

The snow was actually very pretty to view as it was reflected in the stage lighting;

Then it really started dumping but locals expect some of this in April so we were prepared with warm gloves, hats and long johns.

Of course, the snow wasn’t intense for long and the music was amazing!  Grace Potter is high energy with an awesome voice – we stayed until the very end.

This morning the lucky people in Vail awoke to a powder day.  Be careful, the mountain was getting pretty sketchy before this snowfall!

 

If you’re not familiar with High Country Kombucha Tea, please take a moment to view some of the other pages or posts on our website.  Our product is 100% brewed and bottled right here in Eagle County and is really good for you.  This tea is full of probiotics and will help you curb your craving for fizzy sodas and sugary juice and sports drinks.  Check out our calendar of events and visit one of our demos for a free sample.

If you attended the concert, leave a comment and let us know what you thought of the snow, the music, or the event.  We’d love to hear from you.

Steve at the American Ski Classic in Vail

Posted on: March 26th, 2012 by fara

One of our company founders, Steve Dickman, attended the American Ski Classic this weekend with his girlfriend, Lara.  It was a great event that was held in Vail, Colorado with tons of professional skiers and celebrities.

Steve is a fan of the show “Breaking Bad” and ran into a familiar face at the event.  Actor, Giancarlo Esposito who plays “Gus Fring” on Breaking Bad, was in attendance for the Ski classic and was nice enough to pose for a photo with both Steve & Lara.  Everyone at the High Country Kombucha offices are completely star-struck and hope that this chance encounter will inspire Mr. Esposito to give our tasty, probiotic-filled beverage a try.

Local TV Station Features High Country Kombucha

Posted on: March 14th, 2012 by fara

It appears that even in the News media world, when it rains it pours.  This 5 minute interview was aired on our local TV 8 station back on 3/5/12.  They said they would give us 4 minutes but we must have impressed them enough that they allowed us to run long.  We can’t thank them enough for the opportunity to showcase our products on their morning show, Good Morning Vail.  Tricia Swenson did an excellent job of interviewing and we hope TV 8 chooses to feature us again sometime in the future.  Take 5 minutes out of your busy day to view this video and let us know what you think.
