Brewery Teams With Biotechnology Firm To Brew Beer That Benefits Including Açai Berry, Turmeric, Green Tea, Ginger, Flax, Clove Oil and Maitake Mushroom.
Dr. Jekyll’s Craft Brewery has debuted its line of organic craft beers with super food ingredients that promise to take your health and taste buds to the next level. Now beer lovers can fortify their diets with acai berry, turmeric, flax seed oil, cinnamon, hawthorn berry, grapefruit fiber and other nutrients while enjoying “truly odd, yet oddly delicious” beers.
Altadena, CA-based Dr. Jekyll’s teamed with biotech life-sciences firm Virun for a breakthrough process for brewing super foods and essential nutrients into one-of-a-kind beers with benefits. Meeting the functional beverage and $19.6 billion craft beer market head-on, each brew contains six to eight “super foods” known for their rich nutrient content and health enhancing properties.
Bio Beer®, Beer Attack® and Beer Belly® are handcrafted for flavor, nourishment and beer aficionados who prefer to unwind while staying on top of their free radicals! The vegan, non-GMO beers are sold at Whole Foods, Cost Plus, Total Wine & More, other specialty retailers and selected bars, pubs and restaurants in 12-ounce bottles, 22-ounce bottles, on draught and online at DrJekylls.com.
