Founded 2015: The First Bottled Ginger Brew Made in D.C.
This story begins back in 2012 when founder Andrew Shapiro helped a friend open a restaurant. He created a Caribbean-style Ginger Brew for his house-made soda menu that quickly became a hit and was highly sought after by locals in the DC area. After three years of serving many glasses of ginger brew and many ginger-brew-based cocktails, Andrew began bottling the brew with the encouragement of friends and regulars,. In 2015 he launched K & B Sodas with a commitment to using all natural ingredients and focusing on flavor quality.
Paying homage to 1950s world-class canoers Ken and Bob, who were believed to be connoisseurs of fine beverages, K & B Sodas are hand-brewed in small batches to ensure maximum quality and superior taste. K & B harkens back to an era when sodas were made with pride and quality mattered. Their Ginger Brew combines fresh-squeezed ginger and lemon juice, brown cane sugar, white peppercorns, and filtered water to create an all-natural and unique tasting ginger brew with a kick that is not quite a ginger soda and not quite a ginger beer. Its spiced flavor makes it the perfect mixer for a cocktail, the base of a mulled cider or to be simply enjoyed by itself as a refreshing alternative to other “ginger” flavored sodas.
