Stemming from a technical brewing challenge in Melbourne in 2018, the founders of this innovative new brewery have been hard at work creating a range of great-tasting non-alcoholic beers that bring people together, spark conversations and bring better health to our nation. The entire UpFlow range has been lovingly crafted, making use of the versatile properties of simple pure malt, yeast, hops and water. Forget about nasty artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, and enjoy a delicious beer without any added sugar.

What are the benefits of non-alcoholic beer like the UpFlow range?
Drinking non-alcoholic beer has many advantages including no hangovers less bloating, less calories. Alcohol dehydrates the body and adds unnecessary carbs and calories. In contrast the UpFlow Beer range includes Hypotonic beers, also know as Sports beer which helps to rehydrate the body after exercise. Non-alc beer is also a better option for any sports people as well as anyone who can’t or don’t want to drink alcohol: the mindful drinker, the health conscious, pregnant women, breastfeeding mama's (of course still check with your healthcare professional)
What do the non-alcoholic beers in UpFlow’s range taste like?
The Pale Ale uses delicious European flavours like Halletauer and Saaz hops, and Munich malt to create a super tasty, naturally complex beer. The Stout incorporates an amazing mix of bittersweet chocolate and invigorating espresso flavours to build a full-bodied balance and complexity that pairs well with a good old Sunday roast. The UpFlow Wheat Beer provides all the great taste of a classic wheat beer, a clean graininess and a creamy mouthfeel. It’s made specifically for easy drinking. Session IPA is a wonderfully balanced craft beer that has floral tones mixed with a tropical fruity flavour including citrus, berries and pine. Delicious!
What kind of experience does UpFlow have in the brewing industry?
UpFlow’s founders have a wealth of knowledge and experience within the brewing industry, in fact, one founder’s engineering company, Spark, has designed and built over 30 craft breweries and distilleries over 5 years. If that’s not impressive, I don’t know what is. By utilising this connection to the industry, UpFlow has managed to build traction, support and perspective from countries all across the globe. They’ve worked to create 65 developmental batches, built some unique development equipment and crafted some of the tastiest non-alcoholic beers Australia has to offer.
Does UpFlow use “good” ingredients in its beer?
Yes. UpFlow believes in creating a culture of health, wellness and mindfulness when it comes to social drinking. They believe that only the best ingredients should be used to brew all beer. So, they don't use any artificial colours or flavours or added sugar. They all also preservative free. UpFlow simply uses the versatility of pure malt, yeast, hops and water – nothing added or removed – to lovingly craft their beers without the addition of alcohol.

Why was UpFlow created?
UpFlow was created to provide a beer to the Australian community that would help empower mental presence, maximise quality of life, promote fun and improve health and productivity. It was important that it could do all these things and still maintain the classic beer taste without the alcohol. The team at UpFlow wanted to introduce a beer alternative that would allow people to connect better with each other, without the outside influence of mind-altering booze. They wanted to break cultural stigmas and allow people an alternative option to getting wasted every weekend.
