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.
Wow! What a year! It seems that just last week we were at Horsefeathers picking out paint colors & filling flip top bottles.

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.
Wow! Thanks for the Buffalove everyone. As you may have read, we are in the midst of a major expansion. Our product is now on shelves from Dunkirk to Batavia, Niagara Falls to East Aurora and many more coming soon. To help you find our kombucha at a location most convienent, we’ve added a Bootleg Bucha finder on our website. It’s an interactive map of all of every location serving our bucha and can be found on our website under About Us in the menu.
Stay tuned, we’ve got more good news coming soon.
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!
How was your summer vacation? We spent ours expanding into a new facility that will make kombucha a commonplace in WNY. Our new facility at 1250 Niagara Street is 4x’s the size of our previous location and has been designed specifically for kombucha production. You’ll get the same service that you have come to expect with some new additions such as grab & go 12 & 32oz bottles, high speed wifi and expanded seating. Stop by, say hello and of course, grab some bucha.
We are looking forward to seeing you.
