What's Updog?

Not much, what's up with you?

No Seriously, What's Updog?

UpDog Kombucha is a handcrafted, small batch kombucha company based in Winston-Salem, NC. UpDog was founded by two Wake Forest students with a passion for healthy living and natural products. Both kombucha and yoga enthusiasts, Olivia Wolff (’16) and Lauren Miller (’17) have worked tirelessly to perfect their brewing techniques to make UpDog Kombucha in an authentic and sustainable manner.

Is this for dogs?



Why should I drink it?

Kombucha has a bunch of health benefits alongside just tasting good! Kombucha is rich in probiotics, prebiotics, live enzymes, and antioxidants, which means that its properties are great for digestive, immune, and overall health!

Are there added sugars?

Nope. There are 5-8 grams of natural sugars from the fermentation process, but no sugars are added following fermentation.

What diets is Kombucha compliant with?

Our kombucha is raw, vegan, gluten free, and has no added sugars. This means that it is compliant with most styles of diet, including Whole30, Paleo, South Beach, Atkins, Raw Foods diets, and more. If you have more specific questions about if kombucha is okay with your diet, feel free to contact us!

What's that stuff floating in the KOmbucha? Is it safe to drinK?

Yes! It's definitely safe to drink. The stuff you see floating around in the bottle is the SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) that allows the tea blend to ferment and give it its nutritious properties.
