Atlanta-born beverage company Kea Beverages is making big moves. Co-founders Keaton Hong and Sean Keating are opening a production facility in Adair Park, at 680 Murphy Ave SW, that they say will eventually double as a retail store.
Kea Beverages makes kombucha, nitro cold-brewed coffee, and artisanal teas, among other creative beverages. The company is sustainably-minded, focusing on maintaining a small carbon footprint while supporting the Atlanta communities that raised its founders.
The drink specialists started out with a bike cart concept along the BeltLine that quickly grew into a full-scale kombucha brewery and drink manufacturer, and you can now find Kea Beverages in various hotels, co-working spaces, fitness studios, and restaurants across Metro-Atlanta.
Originally, Keating and Hong intended to open a cafe, but for now, the new space in Adair Park will just be a production facility for the growing company. Its co-founders say that the plan to use the space as a retail facility is not far behind.
We’re big supporters of anything Atlanta-born-and-bred, so we’re rooting for Kea Beverages. While it may not be in the cards for the immediate future, we’re predicting a Kea kombucha cafe down the line. But for now, you can get your Kea beverages (including a whole kombucha keg) straight from their website, and eventually you should be able to head to the new space to grab some of their mindfully-crafted drinks in person.
