|Description||Mobtown Fermentation is a health beverage manufacturer based out of Timonium, Maryland. Their primary product is Wild Kombucha, a cause-driven urban spin on an ancient probiotic drink. Sergio Malarin and Adam Bufano grew up making kombucha and other fermented foods including kimchi, sauerkraut, and pickles. When their parents moved to Peru, they left Adam their brewing equipment. He came across the jars and hand bottlers while cleaning out the garage one day, and decided to try brewing. He fell in love with the process and worked to perfect the family recipe over the next 5 years. First friends and family started buying his brew, then some students from Johns Hopkins, and eventually a couple stores were asking for it. Knowing that he could not do this alone, he teamed up with Sergio and their childhood friend Sid.|
