Drop Bear Beer Co: New World Lager

See reviews, ratings and info on 200+ beers

Drop Bear new world lager beer_image21.p

Drop Bear New World non alchoholic lager has a light aroma then a very dry, slightly hoppy taste with hints of citrus and a touch of balancing sweeter fruits. A slightly unexpected lingering, slightly bitter fruity aftertaste - not unpleasant but long. Definitely better when very cold. A refreshing, enjoyable and well executed lager

 

Newly tasted (2):

Insel-Brauerei: Snorkeler's Sea Salt non-alcoholic IPA

Insel_snorkelers_beer_image.png

Insel Snorkelers Sea Salt non alcoholic IPA has a mild, slightly fruity aroma and on initial tasting is medium bodied, moderately smooth and has soft fruit flavours. However the soft fruit flavours are quickly are overcome by contrasting bitterness that steadily intensifies, and then sharpens in the long lasting aftertaste. A very satisfying, well made and distinctive IPA.

Dry January 2021: not so Dry?

A YouGov survey carried out in early January 2021 showed more than one in ten alcohol drinkers were planning to give up alcohol for Dry January. However the same survey showed that within a week three of every ten of those had drunk an alcoholic drink. Although this was seized on by the press and blamed on lockdown, the figure is almost identical to last year. If you’re trying to give up or reduce your alcohol intake, sample one (or all) of the Dry/ish 5 non alcoholic beers to try

Non alcoholic Wheat Beer

Wheat beers are relatively sweet with no bitterness, light and smooth, often with subtle hints of caramel or sweet fruits (such as apple). The best non-alcoholic wheat beers share these characteristics; alongside non-alcoholic lagers, non-alcoholic wheat beers are some of the most successful in replicating the characteristics of their alcoholic counterparts.

Where to buy non alcoholic beers: 

Beerwulf

Beerwulf is a leading online beer retailer - selling all kinds of beers including non alcoholic. The Beerwulf site has plenty of information on beers and brewers, although unfortunately non alcoholic beers are one of many areas of the market covered. Until recently Beerwulf offered an extensive range of continental European non alcoholic beers, but has recently cut this back; it's not clear whether this is Brexit related or a permanent change. However a key benefit of shopping at Beerwulf hasn't changed - you can order individual beers which is great for exploring new varieties and finding new favourites. Part of the Heineken Group

14 best alcohol-free beers to rival the real thing

'In our taste test, we looked for beers that actually tasted like beer, and which give you the enjoyable experience and satisfying depth of flavour that you’re used to, minus the alcohol. Body is important too; we’re looking for lively beers with a full mouthfeel – a task many alcohol-free beers aren’t up to. We’re also looking for great options beyond the most commonly available styles, such as lager, to give you a wider choice. That said, accessibility is important. Among the craft brews, you’ll also find a number of mainstream beer brands in our list.'
