We’re happy to announce that you can get fresh, local, kombucha at Prima Oliva’s stand at the Erie County Fair. We’ve got four flavors on tap located in the Erie County Fair Cooks, Kitchen & Shoppe area. Prima Oliva brought our kegerator to the fair to help build awareness for their new cafe, Prima Cafe, opening soon in the Village of Hamburg.
Their stand is located inside the Kitchen & Shoppe area. The white building has a General Store, Security Office & Lost Children Area and is located between Kiddieland, Lower Grandstand and BW’s BBQ. In addition to kombucha, their stand also has fresh kale, oils, vinegars and more. Stop in and grab a healthy meal while at the fair.
Shop local, shop healthy.
Looking for new cocktail ideas, try a kombucha cocktail and you’ll find yourself doing a real ‘cheers to health’. Kombucha adds a unique twist to familiar favorites without all of the post beverage side effects. You can make these at home or request them at a local watering hole. Some of our favorites are below:
This is just a few of our favorite kombucha cocktails, experiment with your own recipes and let us know.
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.

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,
Yes, that is correct. You’re Fired Cider is our natural remedy, mostly known for its ability to prevent and short-cut cold and flu symptoms. This immune boosting remedy can also stimulate digestion. We start with organic apple cider vinegar, infuse it with fresh ginger, horseradish, garlic, onions, turmeric, orange juice and other cleansing devices. Take it as a shot, add it to your tea, or use it as salad dressing. The choices are endless; just like the health benefits. We suggest a serving of 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon once a day and up to 3x’s a day if you are feeling under the weather.
You’re Fired Cider is our version of “Fire Cider”, an herbal remedy created in the 1970’s by Rosemary Gladstar and made popular by hundreds of herbalists. Order your 4oz bottle today for $8.99 online or use our You’re Fired Cider Finder to find a retailer near you. Contact us for wholesale orders.

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.
Yes, we have extended retail hours, new labels and you’ll now find our bucha in more locations (insert high five emoticon here, seriously). As you’ll see, our retail hours at 1250 Niagara Street are below and we hope to see you soon.
Skipping new labels for a second, we have new locations providing our product. In addition to Farmers & Artisans & Washington Market, you’ll notice that Lexington Co-Op is carrying 5 flavors (ginger, hibiscus lime, tart cherry mint, pomegranate & blueberry lavender). Heather, Jeff & I are now happy to carry the title of member/owner, customer & vendor at the Co-Op. In addition, you’ll soon start seeing your favorite local bucha at many Tops Friendly Markets. We already stocked the shelves in East Aurora and will have samples at the Taste of East Aurora (in the Tops tent). More stores will follow shortly.
Back to labels, they are rolling out concurrently. We made it 10 months handwriting and now it’s time for pre-printed labels with barcodes, ingredients and nutrition information. Our 12oz bottles (grab & go) are first to get the face lift, the rest will follow shortly.
Time to get back to bottling, we’ll see you soon and thank you so much for your support!
