Texas-based organic beverage company KTonic LLC will hold a groundbreaking for its 4,380-square-foot production facility and taproom in Hutto on April 15 at 11:30 a.m.

Located at 3760 Limmer Loop, the KTonic production facility and taproom will enable expanded production of KTonic Kombucha to Texas, the Southwest region of the U.S. and beyond, according to a press release.

KTonic currently offers six flavors of kombucha, a fermented tea: ginger and lemongrass, cayenne, hibiscus, orange peel, cherry and elderberry. The taproom will have these flavors as well as special flavors not available in retail or grocery outlets, said Greg Goodman, owner and CEO of KTonic, in an email.

Hutto City Council approved the establishment of the KTonic project during its Feb. 25 meeting. The project was organized by the Hutto Community Development Corp., which held a public hearing on the establishment in December.

“The city of Hutto and the Community Development Corp. is proud to welcome KTonic to our growing and diverse economy. KTonic’s dedication to supporting Texas-based businesses and commitment to hire from local workforce will allow our community to thrive and flourish,” Mayor Mike Snyder said in the release.


KTonic's production facility is expected to be completed by August, and the taproom will be open to the public in early 2022.
