reserve bir kar

s.o. premium instant raw kava juice

The world of single origin kava is a realm of enchanting variety, where each varietal promises an entirely different experience.

Finally... the famous mental delight straight from Santo. A vanuatu kava through and through, this heavy hitter is a great one for Thursdays kicking it back with friends, when you're looking to relax at the end of a hard workday, or even for those afterwork sessions you're looking to turn in with. Yoga anyone? 🤸‍♂️

What is kava?

Haven’t heard of kava? Kava is made from the roots of a pepper plant native to the South Pacific. It has a fascinating earthy yet numbing taste, that results from the high level of calming actives in the roots.

Natural kava is vegan, gluten-free, nonaddictive, and full of liver protecting properties.

How many servings

All of our jars have a scooper. 1 scoop is between 170mg - 300mg+ of kavalactones depending on the blend or varietal.

This is more of a guidance since all kava's have different experience profiles.

Regardless, expect 50+ servings with a 100g jar

Is kava safe

Kava is generally recognized as a safer/healthier non-addictive alternative to alcohol as long as it is consumed in the traditional form.

For this reason we generally DO NOT recommend non-traditional methods of using kava such as: pills, concentrates, ready-to-drink made with concentrates, tinctures, and micronized kava. These are convenient but aside for the last one, they shouldn't be called kava. In the same way you don't put caffeine in a pill and call it coffee, you shouldn't put extract in a soda can and call it kava.

Traditional kava has not been shown to be addictive in clinical trials and does not activate physiological or psychological addiction tendancies found in beverages and supplements like alcohol or kratom.

why we made this

The perfect companion to a long day

Today was exhausting

A competitor pulled some absurdly petty slanderous tricks on us. I was already at my limit, but I had promised to help a friend talk through something after work. How could I show to the brewery, arms wide open, and be there for him? Answer = Reserve bir kar.

On days you are looking for some bright elation and remembrance that everything, really everything, is going to be okay, you can rely on our bir kar. Within minutes after my first cup the frustrations faded, my attitude changed, and I was fully present with my friend. Life is too short to let erratic emotions distract you from the beauty of true human connection. No, the problem is not fixed. And yes I'm still frustrated with what they did. BUT this batch of bir kar gave me some more perspective.

I heard once, that there are two ways to build the tallest building. You can either build the tallest building, or you can tear down everyone around you.

We're not gonna stoop to their level.

Thank you for the perspective bir kar 

Generic kava is BORING. Don't be boring.

about bir kar

Our Bir Kar is grown in a secluded lush region of Espiritu Santo where the soil is light and very nutrient-dense. This kava varietal itself is a truly delightful experience acting more like a premium eastern pacific varietal than a traditional Vanuatan kava. It sports a nutty-like aroma and dark red stems that come about as the plant matures over the years.

We believe this fine version is a classic example of the varietal but leaning a bit more toward the headiness side, which we thought fitting to round out our reserve series. It is quick and potent, providing a clean headiness and heavy relaxing effect.

Like the rest of our raw kava's, this is freshly harvested then squeezed of it's raw juice. The closest thing to a fresh cup of raw kava juice outside of hopping on a plane to Espiritu itself!

Great for opening up your mind during those artistic sessions

We hope you enjoy and thank you for your continued love and support.

what is instant kava

cheers to the world of instant kava

Often imitated never duplicated

drinkroot instant kava starts with a careful selection of either single origin harvests or a hand selected blend of the top noble varietals, to create a unique premium mixture.

After harvest, every amalgamated batch of roots first undergoes a strict QC analysis to ensure premium kavalactone characteristics and content to match your desired experience profile.

The proprietary blend is then carefully brewed and homogenized in a closed temperature controlled environment with warm filtered water to mimic traditional brew methods. After juice is pressed it is rapidly dehydrated so it can be immediately added to any liquid without any filtering needed!

No bark.
No fillers.
No micronized roots.
Pure kava.
