Who are we?
Boro Beverage is a socially responsible and community-driven company. We produce non-alcoholic, fermented beverages that are seasonally sourced and agriculturally inspired.
How did we start?
Boro Beverage began as a hobby when owner and mother Brewer Carly Erickson would take unwanted produce from farms she worked on and create healthy value-added products out of them. Making sauerkraut and vegetable ferments, she would create fabulous and vibrant food that was alive. It was like a second chance program! These products evolved into other fermentables and were often requested to be purchased by the community. As the demand was there, a business was born!
