What initially started as a joke inside our brewery, back in Dry January, quickly became a fun side project as we reflected on the lack of good, low alcohol beers. What if we made a beer for all those times you don’t feel like drinking a beer? What if we harnessed the levity of carbonation and the deliciousness of hops, without the booze? Was it even possible in a small brewery like ours? We asked questions, we wrote down lots of numbers, we did an experiment.
0.5% is our second ever batch of “near” beer, has beautiful hop aromatics, light ice-tea-like flavours, and a spritzy body. It’s kind of like beer, kind of not, and let’s just be honest, surprisingly delicious. Further iterations forthcoming.
