our roots

Boro Beverage is a socially responsible and community driven company. We produce non alcoholic, fermented beverages that are seasonally sourced and agriculturally inspired. 

Boro Beverage began as a hobby when owner and mother Brewer Carly Erickson would take unwanted produce from farms she worked on and created 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 often requested to be purchase by the community. As the demand was there a business was born!

Carly Erickson is a native Californian who has called the NC Piedmont home for 10 years. Her background includes a degree in Sustainable Agriculture, nutritional and herbal studies, as well as a deep rooted background in entrepreneurship since childhood. Her passions include strengthening community, local food access, craft beer, travel and music. Carly is a mother of two and lives in the quirky town of Carrboro, NC.
