Lets face it - nicer weather always means more drinking, and as we are approaching the summer months we wanted to showcase some of our favorite alcohol free beers! They are perfect for an afternoon in the sun or a BBQ - they all have incredible flavour, just minus the guilt!
So here are 5 alcohol free beers we would recommend (in no particular order)
Quite easily the best alcohol free we have ever had - this one is a must try, and is a special edition beer so get it while you can! It's roasty, malty and backed up by Bramling Cross hops like most stouts, but actually this beer is better then most stouts out there. The body is a bit thin - but it makes up for this with its medley of flavour. Its jam packed with coffee, cocoa nibs and vanilla, which all amazingly come through and are as promised on the can. Plus bonus points for the 440ml can.
2. BIG DROP - Pale Ale - 330ml bottle
Big Drop really are doing some amazing things with alcohol free beer, and we are always so impressed with any of their releases. They use lactose as well to give their beers a little more body which is crucial for alcohol free (a lot of watery ones out there!). This dry-hopped, alcohol free, pale ale is deliciously refreshing. The nose has hints of pine and honey. Packed full of flavour from citrus-heavy hops with a twist of fresh lime to create a crisp, zesty beer. you wont believe how much flavour this 0.5% beer has!
3. Mikkeller - Henry and His Science - 330ml bottle
If you like sours, or funky yeasty pales - then this is the beer for you. This beer uses its own yeast strain called Mikkellensis, specifically created by Mikkeller, and uses neutral grains and hops to showcase what the yeast can do for a beer. The result is a super soft and tangy sour beer, that has the best body of an alcohol free beer that we have tried. Its like drinking a little cloud- expect some nice fruity grapefruit tones, followed by a smooth tiny hint of bitterness.
4. Erdinger - Weissbrau - Isotonic Recovery Drink - 500ml
Erdinger have really nailed the alcohol free wheat beer style, as this is one of the best we have ever had. Weissbrau gets points for looking the most like a beer as well, its thick, bright and produces a nice head on the beer, something that can be lost with alcohol free. This one is very sweet, which actually makes it more refreshing, and would work great for an after workout beer. Don't expect a lot of bitterness from this beer, but if your looking for something smooth and refreshing, then this is the alcohol free for you.
5. Infinite Session - Pale Ale
Infinite Session brewery won an award for this pale ale at the world beer awards and was the united kingdom 2018 winner for best low alcohol pale ale.This beer is packed with lots of tropical tones packed with 6 different hops you can expect lots of flavour from the Mosaic, Citra and Chinook, with a gentle thirst quenching bitterness. Just like infinite session India pale ale you can expect a soft smooth finish with the combination of 6 grains, that gives this low alcohol beer a good body.
