A plant-based alternative to alcohol, cannabis and other common vices.
Learn more about our products below
Don’t be misled by the fact that New Brew doesn’t contain alcohol or cannabis. This potent seltzer is made with active botanicals that you can actually feel. For most people, the effects are perceptible after one serving.
New Brew employs two primary active ingredients: Text-fill leaf and Kava root, which are the keys to the formula’s unique potency. Each can of New Brew contains a dosage of 25mg of Text-fill leaf extract and 125mg of Kava root extract, which is a relatively low dose when compared with other commercially available products containing these ingredients. 
That being said, New Brew is a potent beverage for adults and these ingredients are likely to have effects even at New Brew’s low dosage.
