Stop by the Veggie Wagon and try their Kombucha! The first batch was Black Cherry and their latest batch, now ready to roll is Blueberry flavored. They are offering our kombucha with chia seeds and without. There are tons of health benefits to kombucha, but first I bet some of you are wondering what kombucha really is. Kombucha is an “ancient fermented tea beverage” that has a natural effervescence (like bubbly carbonation) that is full of probiotics, antioxidants, B vitamins and so much more. It has roots in China, specifically the Qin Dynasty in 220 BCE with proven records of it traveling to Russia – eventually thriving to the health-conscious hippy communities of the 1970’s.Kombucha is known for being a great source of probiotics (healthy bacteria) for the intestines, with loads of vitamins, and detoxification properties to cleanse the body and support a healthy immune system.
Fall has arrived and the folks at the Veggie Wagon are bringing back all your seasonal favorites! Stop by and try any of their fall brews including “Punkin Ale” made by the brewers at Dogfish brew this full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar!!  Using only the best pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices this brew is always a favorite and super quick to fly off the shelves, or in this case, our case stacks. If “Punkin”  isn't your thing, don't forget that they carry a great selection NC microbrews that you can mix and match! They will be adding lots more as they roll in so stop by and see what’s new, while you are there sign up for their weekly newsletter. Emails include new arrivals, beer and wine tasting an amazing weekly recipe and more!
