Kombucha Snafu

The Portland Daily Sun has published a report on one Mainer’s inadvertent impact on the US kombucha industry.

“Maine can take credit for the kombucha nationally being taken off the shelf,” said Chris Hallweaver, who thinks he might be personally responsible for sidelining the industry because he applied for a license to sell the drink commercially under the brand name “The Booch” with the Maine Department of Agriculture last December.
