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.

0.97%, our first ever batch of “near” beer, has beautiful hop aromatics, light fruity 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.

ABV: 0.97%

What it smells like, what it tastes like: Light bodied and refreshing with perfect carbonation, this pale ale exhibits flavours and aromas of lemon, lime candy and cut grass.
