If you're unsure where to begin with non-alcoholic beers, then we've taken the guess work out for you. As the experts in non-alcoholic, our bar team has put together the ultimate beer starter pack for those that prefer their beer out of a can.
From pale ale to stout, these are the some of the best available and are a great way to introduce yourself, or someone sober-curious, to the world of non-alcoholic beer.
Heaps Normal XPA
Heaps normal's unfiltered non-alcoholic XPA carries tropical and citrus aromas. A subtle but noticeable malt sweetness with a well balanced and refreshing bitterness finish. The Heaps Normal Quiet XPA is a delicious, full of flavour, refreshing beer without the downsides.
Brew Dog Nanny State Ale
Packed with loads of Centennial, Amarillo, Ahtanum, Cascade and Simcoe hops, dry hopped to the brink and back and sitting at 50 IBUs, Nanny state is a force to be reckoned with. With a backbone of 8 different speciality malts and grains, Nanny State is as big on malt complexity as it is on heavy- handed hopping.
Morning Free Pale Ale
Mornington Free is a non-alcoholic Pale Ale brewed with a unique recipe to ferment to less than 0.5% ABV while retaining full-bodied taste and bold passionfruit and citrus aromas. Pouring light golden, this deliciously easy-going beer is balanced and refreshing.
Big Drop Milk Stout
Do you like honeycomb covered in chocolate?... because that's exactly what it tastes like: rich, unctuous, and an absolutely decadent treat of a beer. There's no sign of the added lime juice in the taste, showing it's done its job well. A hit of bitterness that cuts through the fruitiness near the end of each sip.
Pale & malted wheat provide a slightly hazy appearance, paired with loads of new world hop varieties, providing bold flavours of tropical fruit, citrus & pine. Upflow hopped their IPA with Mosaic, Citra & Amarillo from America, as well as VIC secret from Australia. A clean malt profile provides a platform for those juicy hops to really shine, before a dry, lingering hop bitterness on the finish. For those who love hops, not hangovers!
The Mexican style brew is light, zesty, tangy and hoppy against a sweet yet nutty backdrop. The finger lime, aka 'gulalung' is an Australian native citrus fruit naturally occurring around Northern NSW and SE QLD throughout Bundjalung Nations lands. The fruit is rich in folate, potassium and Vitamins C & E. It's a smashable brew for warm weather or after a sweat session!
