Jump Ship Brewing Co….
Founded by Sonja Mitchell, here she describes how and why she started Scotland’s first dedicated AF beer brand.
I tasted my first beer moments after my first rugby match. I’d made a try-saving tackle that helped win us the game and the team captain brought in a jug of ale to celebrate. There and then I decided that not even the finest champagne could beat the flavour of a freshly-pulled pint.
But as the years passed and life got busier – enter three children, dog and busy job – I found that although I still wanted to relax with a beer, I no longer wanted the alcohol or fuzzy head next day. None of the low alcohol beers I tasted matched up to the amazing Scottish beers I enjoyed, so I took a deep breath, jumped ship from my day job and set off on a voyage of discovery to brew my own. It took nearly a year to perfect our first beer, Yardarm, and I wept into more than one failed brew. So imagine my delight when Yardarm was awarded best no and low alcohol lager in the World Beer Awards 2021, beating global brands in the process. Not bad for a wee start-up from Edinburgh!
What Makes Jump Ship Different…
Instead of stripping the alcohol out of our beer (along with flavour) we design our beers to be naturally less than 0.5% ABV.
Using the finest ingredients, together with no end of skill, care (and the occasional swear word), we’ve fine-tuned our brewing methods to create alcohol-free beer that’s full-bodied and full of flavour. Our beers aren’t rushed. Flavours develop over time as our beer conditions in the tank.
Not content with just brewing delicious beer, we’ve also designed our core range of beers to be gluten-free and vegan, so everyone can join our crew.
Flying Colours Pale Ale ~ 330ml Can
A distinctive, full-bodied pale ale which packs a shipload of flavour. Malty base notes, topped with fruity hops, combine with a kick of lime to give this beer a satisfyingly bitter finish.
