Hello there! We're Soda Brewery™ and we make 100% naturally brewed, New Zealand made, half-the-sugar sodas.
Like most kiwis, we grew up loving soft drinks. But, also like most kiwis, over the past few years we’ve become aware of just how sugary these drinks are – and the impact that too much sugar has on our health.
Being big beer fans, we’d learned how the brewing process converts sugar into complex and delicious flavours.
And we had this epiphany – what if you could use the magic of brewing to create a soda that had just as much flavour, with far less sugar?
And guess what? It worked! Our natural brewing process produces much more flavour, which means we can use much less sugar. A whole half as much less*, in fact.
We're soda brewers, using the magic of brewing to fix what we hate about soft drinks.
*Soda Brewery™ sodas contain less than half the average sugar content of leading regular soft drinks.
Brewing is magic! It allows us to create more flavour than a normal 'mixed up in a factory' soft drink without adding anywhere near as much sugar.
Our brewing process creates sodas with a more complex flavour, greater depth and dimension, and a fuller and richer mouthfeel...
We use no artificial sweeteners or preservatives and our sodas are made with 100% natural ingredients.
