Alcohol-free brewer Big Drop has teamed up with four Nordic breweries to launch a limited-edition range of 0.5% ABV collaboration beers.
The range is the second in Ipswich-based Big Drop’s ‘World Collab Series’, curated with beer expert Melissa Cole and designed as a showcase for the increasingly popular alcohol-free craft beer market.
Available from mid-January, the new range includes:
Arctic Beach, a full-bodied and velvety coconut stout created with Icelandic brewer Einstök.
Fläderlätt, an elderflower IPA created with Hop Notch in Sweden using the experimental UK hop Mozart.
Rye’d Said Fred, a juniper rye IPA created with Finland’s Fat Lizard that is brewed with a rye-heavy mash.
Rush Rider, a refreshing, vegan-friendly peach melba pastry sour created with Norwegian brewer Amundsen.
Big Drop intends its World Collab Series as a platform to push the boundaries of non-alcoholic beer, teaming up with renowned international brewers to create brews that can pique curiosity.
Rob Fink, founder and CEO of Big Drop, said: “These are all world-class breweries with whom we’ve had great fun conjuring up big-flavoured beers and brewing them naturally without the need for any artificial nonsense to remove the alcohol.
“We’re all about innovation and we hope that these special editions will bring the joy of new experiences to people who love great beer.”
The new World Collab Series beers are available to purchase on the Big Drop Brewing website from 18 January.
