When did Big Drop Brewing Co. Launch?
The Big Drop Brewing Co launched in October 2016, the brand was started with two friends who wanted to create a range of non-alcoholic beers that had the same flavour profiles as the regular classic and craft beers. Changes in both founder's lifestyles meant they decided to reduce their alcohol intake, but they still wanted to enjoy the crisp, refreshing taste of a good beer. They focused their attention on creating Big Drop and soon realised the growing market for great tasting beer without the alcohol. Big Drop launched in Australia in August 2020.
Is Big Drop Beer Gluten Free?
International food codes state that a product can be labelled ‘gluten free’ if it contains less than 20ppm gluten. However, in Australia, food codes stipulate a literal interpretation of ‘gluten free’ meaning that products using this label can not contain any detectable gluten. So, while several Big Drop Beers fall into the ‘gluten free’ category in the UK, in Australia, they are regarded as low gluten. Pine Trail Pale Ale, Paradiso Citra IPA, Up Town Craft Lager and Poolside DDH IPA all contain less than 10PPM. Galactic Milk Stout contains less than 20PPM. Always speak to your GP if you may be sensitive to gluten.
