Drinking non-alcoholic beer has many advantages. Let’s take a look at the classic hangover, for example. Bloated, headache pounding, body aching – yuck. That’s what alcohol does. It can dehydrate our body and add unnecessary carbs and calories.
Non-alc beer is also a better option for people 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), people of a wide range of different religions, designated drivers, Dry July participants, the list goes on!
The number of people choosing to ditch the alcohol in favour of alternatives continues to rise.
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!
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.
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.
Well, that depends on what type of beer you usually reach for! They’ve got a beer to suit just about everyone.
If you like a fruity craft beer, the UpFlow Session IPA Non Alcoholic Beer might be the best option for you.
Stout drinkers will definitely fare well with the UpFlow Non Alcoholic Stout and its bitter, chocolately, coffee vibes.
A classic creamy, golden drop awaits Wheat Beer drinkers with the UpFlow Non Alcoholic Wheat Beer.
And last, but not least, the UpFlow Non Alcoholic Pale Ale is perfect for people who just want a Pale Ale that tastes like real Pale Ale – minus the alcohol, of course.
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.
Right now, they’ve got the basics covered. We’re certainly hoping an expansion is on the cards, but we can’t be certain as yet.
