Since we started in November of 2015, we’ve been pushing to make kombucha more accessible to everyone. From a little 400 sq ft shop in the basement of Horsefeathers, we’ve grown to a 3,000 sq ft production facility at 1250 Niagara Street and are expanding again. As a result, our kombucha and You’re Fired Cider is distributed from Erie, PA to Brooklyn, NY.
With the expansion, we’ve added retail hours at 1250 Niagara. Our hours are:
For those regulars, we are now “officially” open Monday.
Stay tuned for more.
All right stop, pop, collaborate and listen. Join us this Saturday 3/18/17 from 11a-2p as we release blueberry lavender goat milk soap in collaboration with Alpine Made. In addition to this exciting news, we’ll be hosting Alpine Made, Butter Block (blueberry lavender donuts), Public Espresso, Farmers & Artisans and the new kid in town, Jerk It (beef jerky) in our prep kitchen pop up. You can expect fresh, local, kombucha on tap, and also be able to get the finest skincare products from Alpine Made, fresh treats & eats from Butter Block, pour overs and more from Public Espresso, locally sourced items from Farmers & Artisans and Jerk It (beef jerky).
Most importantly, we challenge you to help us fill up the Reddy Bike truck with donations. We are collecting donations for the families that were displaced due to the apartment fire on Lafayette. Bring in a donation and we’ll give you 15% off your kombucha order. The families are in need of toiletries, blankets, clothing for individuals of all ages and sizes. Drop off your items and we’ll get them to Doreen with Glendale Development. Reddy Bike has graciously offered their box truck to transport the items, lets fill it up!
Here’s the skinny.

Bootleg Bucha opened out of a window in the Horsefeathers Building for their Winter Market on Saturday, November 7 2015. Our 300 square foot facility was just what we needed to get out of Heather & Jeff’s house and into the public eye. Over the last year we’ve met many great people, customers, vendors, employees, collaborators and friends. We’ve expanded a wee bit since then and will continue. Our goal is to provide a tasty, enjoyable, healthy option to our community and make kombucha a common term in Buffalo. We thank every person who has welcomed us and helped to champion a healthier Buffalo.
Below is a look at our facebook posts from that first day.
Celebrate with us on Small Business Saturday, November 26 from 5-9 at our facility. We’ll have live music, kombucha cocktails, kombucha floats and more.
To good health,
Wow! What a year! It seems that just last week we were at Horsefeathers picking out paint colors & filling flip top bottles. It’s been quite the ride and we’d like you to join us in a celebration of kombucha in Buffalo. Join us on 11/26 to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, grand opening of 1250 Niagara and Small Business Saturday.

We’ve been in the media a bit lately so we thought we’d compile an area online that will link to and archive some of the coverage from Buffalo Rising, Buffalo Spree, Kiss 98.5, WGRZ, WBFO, NY Times & more.
