Proudly founded by Gamilaroi man, Clinton Schultz, and his wife Lozen, Sobah is changing the way Australians combat the societal issues surrounding alcohol consumption by smashing stereotypes, promoting inclusion and choosing to drink ethically superb non-alcoholic craft beer.
Sobah is an Australian non-alcoholic craft beer brewery intent on doing the right thing. Their ethical brewing methods and the social stances they take are exactly what we need more of. Here are the FAQ questions you wanted to know about the Sobah story.
What is the driving force behind Sobah’s range of non-alcoholic craft beer?
Sobah’s founders, Clinton and Lozen Schultz have a vision of changing the Aussie drinking culture from a destructive force to a social, community driven, fun-filled experience. They want to provide an enticing non-alcoholic option for non-drinkers (and drinkers) to experiment with and enjoy!
Clinton is a Gamilaroi man himself and he strives to incorporate his Aboriginal heritage into the Sobah brand, touching on lessons he has learned from Elders around Australia. Respecting people, respecting the environment, engaging in positive actions and working towards fulfilling our responsibilities to our community are just a few of the values upheld in the Sobah journey.

What are the health benefits of Sobah non-alcoholic beer?
Each native bush tucker used in the brewing process of these beers holds its own beneficial vitamins and health benefits, such as Finger Lime which is high in vitamin C. Pairing this with the fact that non-alcoholic beer contains less calories, sugars and carbs than regular beer makes Sobah a truly health conscious choice for beer lovers everywhere. Each can contains 0.5% ABV or less, which makes it technically free from alcohol and all of the associated health issues.
Who can drink Sobah’s non-alcoholic craft beer?
Pretty much anyone. Because Sobah’s range contains little to no alcohol, these tins may be an option for:
- Designated drivers
- People who don’t consume alcohol for religious reasons
- People who can’t drink alcohol for health reasons
- People with alcohol allergies
- Breastfeeding mothers
- Pregnant women
- Anyone participating in Febfast, Ocsober, Dry July, etc.
As well as this, they’re perfect for the vegans and health conscious among us. (Please note that we do always recommend pregnant or breastfeeding women double check with their health professional before consuming non-alcoholic drinks).
What is the benefit of utilising Australian bush tucker in craft beer?
Aussie bush tucker is a completely unique culinary experience that melds perfectly with the flavour profiles of certain beers. Sobah have handpicked Aussie delicacies and taken them to a whole new level by incorporating them into their craft beers.
These are flavours that you’ll find nowhere else. They’re completely unique, while still managing to hold onto the crisp, fresh taste and aroma of a classic beer.
These alcohol-free beers allow people who don’t have access to great bush tucker flavours to taste them in all their glory, while enjoying their favourite IPA, Pilsner or other options in the Sobah range.
Where does the artwork on Sobah cans come from?
Sobah non-alcoholic beers draws much of their product development and flavour profiles from native Australian fauna. Why should the artwork on the cans be any different?
Beautiful indigenous art pieces have been sourced to truly bring out the personality and the story behind each non-alcoholic craft beer in this unique range. Promoting Aboriginal art, history and culture plays a huge part in the values and aspirations of Sobah as a brand.
What kind of community support is Sobah involved in?
