Back in 2017, deep in a 100-year-old wine cellar, an Ojai-based entrepreneur had the vision to blend his passions for organic winemaking and the ancient alchemy of fermentation. As this vision became a reality, the Thomas Fires raged through the area, threatening to destroy everything he and his team were building. Humbled and inspired by the event that shaped them, Flying Embers set out to not only brew the finest hard kombuchas, but also to make a serious impact, donating a portion of proceeds to firefighters and first responders and dedicating resources to rewilding, response, and recovery programs. 

With an origin story like that and a mission so compelling, teaming up with Flying Embers as Angel City’s official Hard Kombucha partner makes a lot of sense. 

This partnership stems from a shared commitment to putting purpose at the heart of all activities and supporting local communities. Together, ACFC and Flying Embers will work to further each other’s missions by creating more green spaces in the Los Angeles region and honoring first responders of our community.

“Since partnering with the World Surf League, we've been lucky to be able to continue to build partnerships with organizations who share our values and want to enact meaningful change,” said VP of Marketing, Ali Davala. “We love what Angel City stands for and have been consistently impressed and inspired by their fight for gender equality. We hope that through our partnership, we can contribute to ACFC’s mission and together make a positive impact locally.”

Combining modern science with ancient methods, Flying Embers brews dry in a process that eliminates all sugar and carbs. They handcraft their flavors with organic ingredients, whole plant botanicals, superfruits, and adaptogens. 

“With their commitment to supporting communities and with an origin story rooted in purpose, Flying Embers is a natural addition to the Angel City Family,” said ACFC Head of Revenue, Jessica Smith. “They have proven their commitment to supporting women’s sports by aligning their first two sponsorships with organizations dedicated to making bold moves towards pay equity. We are excited to welcome them to our team and can’t wait for fans to enjoy their handcrafted Hard Kombucha at our Banc of California Stadium home matches.”

Flying Embers and ACFC will activate the Angel City Sponsorship Model, structured for every team partner to make a charitable impact by supporting an organization dedicated to rewilding land affected by forest fires, and honoring those who help keep us safe.

Outside of their environmental initiatives, Flying Embers, and ACFC will recognize a community member and highlight their service at select home matches through “Moments of Gratitude,” an at-game series featuring Angel City players, coaches, and executives who will share stories and quotes of gratitude. Honoring female firefighters, first responders, and other heroes, this “Moments of Gratitude” series aligns with the mindset of both brands. 

The Flying Embers Brewery & Social Club, located in Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, will serve as a home base for Angel City fans and supporters, with watch parties and exclusive events throughout the season. Additionally, the ACFC front office in Santa Monica will feature a year-round Flying Embers Bar for team, staff, and supporters to enjoy their organic brews.

Any reason. Anytime. We want to know you.
