I popped into Sainsbury’s recently to check if they had updated their craft beer range at all and surprisingly they had! However, I’m starting with one of their alcohol free offerings. Mikkeller is a rather famous Danish brewery known for funky beers at rather expensive prices. Recently, I was told that they make rather good alcohol free beer so I thought I’d give their supermarket … Continue reading Beer Review: Drink’in The Sun (0.3%) – Mikkeller
It’s my birthday today! And while I would love my body to be a temple I will not be celebrating my lock-down birthday with alcohol free beer. Today’s review is going to be AF but it’s from my more tame Sunday. It’s been a while since I’ve had a wheat beer and the last one I had was low alcohol. It was one of the … Continue reading Beer Review: Hefeweizen (Alcohol Free) – Rothaus
Unfortunately this is the last low alcohol beer I have kicking around and sadly I don’t think it is a particularly interesting one. ‘Old Speckled Hen’ is a British staple in terms of classic old school ales. Originally brewed by Moorland Brewery, they were taken over by regional giants Greene King in 2000. Going into this one my initial worry was that, like many regional … Continue reading Beer Review: Old Speckled Hen (Low Alcohol) – Greene King
West Ham United had a massive win against Tottenham yesterday afternoon and I did the peculiar thing of celebrating with an Alcohol Free beer. Crazy I know, as after my last AF beer the risk was high of it putting a dampener on my sky high mood. My tipple of choice was the 0.5% version of Adnams’ famous ‘Ghost Ship’ Citrus Pale Ale. They’ve been … Continue reading Beer Review: Ghost Ship (AF) – Adnams
I’m running unfortunately low on No/Low Alcoholic craft beer at the moment but I’m still determined to test out what is available. As such today I’ve gone for an own brand low alcohol brew. From The Hop Foundry (a.k.a another of ALDI’s plethora of craft beer brands) this is ‘Low Profile’ a 0.5% ABV IPA. The beer pours a clear gold with a very quickly … Continue reading Beer Review: Low Profile – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)
Continuing my search for quality non-alcoholic craft beer this week. I’ve had to resort to the supermarkets for now as I’ve ran out of my bottle shop NA craft brews. Lucky Saint is a beer I know fairly well on account that we used to sell it at the pub I work in. I only had it the once quite a while and thought it … Continue reading Beer Review: Lucky Saint – Lucky Saint
Dry January may be over but I’m a little hooked on trying to find some stand out alcohol free beers that can hold their own against their boozy counterparts. After the very successful tasting of Big Drops milk stout last week I thought I’d give them another go. ‘Pine Trail’ is a pale ale and a silver medalist at the World Beer Awards. As with … Continue reading Beer Review: Pine Trail – Big Drop Brewing Co.
My first ever low alcohol stout today from a brewery that specialises in creating Non/Low Alcoholic brews. Big Drop are based up in Ipswich and have been brewing since 2015. I grabbed this from my local bottle shop Arch Rivals on recommendation that it’s very close to coming across like an actual beer. ‘Galactic Milk Stout’ is a Silver winner at the World Beer Awards … Continue reading Beer Review: Galactic Milk Stout – Big Drop Brewing Co.
My search for quality alcohol free craft beer for an ever so slightly drier January than usual continues with today’s beer. ‘YES’ from First Chop is vegan, gluten free and 0.5% ABV which on paper does sound like the most boring combo for a beer. However, it’s always good to have an open mind when it comes to beer as anything can surprise you. A … Continue reading Beer Review: YES – First Chop
With the current situation I don’t think I’d honestly be able to keep Dry January going! However, I’ve thought I’d try and cut back a little this month. I picked up a selection of alcohol free beers from my last trip to Morrisons to give them a go and see if there are any readily available low or no alcohol beers that also taste good. … Continue reading Beer Review: Without (Gold) – St Peter’s Brewery
