Plenty Hard Kombucha: Two Flavours


Plenty Hard Kombucha: Two Flavours Review

This week, What’s Brewing  magazine featured a story on the BC Kombucha scene that spotlights some female-driven businesses.

Up until now, Beer Me BC hadn’t covered kombucha, which has a budding following and a rightful place in the BC craft beverage community. However, the folks from Plenty Hard Kombucha were kind enough to provide us with a couple of samples, and we realized we’d better correct our deficiency!

From Plenty came a Grapefruit Hibiscus offering, along with a Mango Pineapple Coconut. They had more distinction between them than we expected. Let’s have a closer look at this pair of beverages.


We started with the grapefruit version. It poured clearly with a faint peach blush. It was effervescent on the pour, but not being a beer, there was no significant head.

It was slightly vinous (reminiscent of white wine) on the nose, with a light, fruity aroma. As expected from that, the experience was clean on the palate.

The light, citrusy flavour presented a subtle grapefruit note. It was fruity but not overly sweet.

Overall this kombucha was reminiscent of a dry wine cooler (albeit definitely upscale from the plastic bottle stuff we drank in years past).


Compared to the Grapefruit version, this one poured a slightly cloudy straw gold, with an ash blonde tinge.

It was much funkier on the nose thanks to the mango and tropical aromas. The scent was reminiscent of stone fruit (like peach or apricot).

This one was sweeter and juicier on the palate. The flavours were present as advertised, including sugar cane, mango, pineapple and a subtle vanilla coconut note.

In short, we enjoyed the two beverages provided, including their differences. Both BeerSeekers were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed these beverages more than we anticipated. The kombucha the refreshing nature of a cooler or cider, but wasn’t really like cider or wine at all.

If we had a complaint about the products, it would be that they’re packaged in regular 12oz cans. We found ourselves wishing they were tallboys…but we hear that might be coming down the pipe. These go down fast, so the more, the better!
