The Latest Trends for Non-Alc Beers

The trend for alcohol-free beer has been accelerating for some time and shows no sign of slowing down. Consumers are looking for non-alcoholic alternatives that have all the flavour and compelling taste of their alcoholic counterparts, and brewers are stepping up to the mark. 

The latest alc-free beer trends

Non-alcoholic drinks have become a growing sector in the market with many people engaging in alcohol challenges or looking to drink more mindfully. On top of this, there is growing awareness that alcohol-free drinks yield many health benefits such as improved sleep

Another factor that has been a driving factor in the alc-free trend is the German purity law that keeps beer standards at a high level. 

We can all enjoy the ongoing alc-free trend. Here are some of the beers that have been making waves. 

Clausthaler Alcohol Free Lager 

[product name="clausthaler-original-pils-non-alcoholic-beer"]

The blurb: Clausthaler is a non-alcoholic beer that is cultivated by the craft beer technique of dry-hopping. This means the Hops are only added once fermentation has been achieved.

Where it's from: Frankfurt, Germany 

The taste: The taste is rich and has a tantalising glimpse of sweet malt and a subtle bitter tastiness. It has the most enriching golden colour and it is as full in history as it is in taste and flavour.

Kehrwieder

[product name="kehrwieder-unn-non-alcoholic-ipa"]

The blurb: Kehrwieder is a beer made using a combination of Simcoe and Mosaic hops. Yeast enables fermentation to cease early.

Where it's from: Hamberg, Germany.
