Nirvana has to be one of the most interesting breweries to emerge onto the scene recently. Based in east London, they boast of being Britain’s only brewery dedicated to producing only alcohol-free craft ales and nothing else. That certainly sets them apart from the big brewers who make alcohol-free beers alongside their usual fare; it also places them in a slightly different category to the host of 0.5% beers available in the supermarkets.
There’s a certain spiritual vibe to the company and its beers – from their advice to drinkers to “break free from entangled roots”, to the really sleek design of their labels and branding to the names of their beers. The other thing the bottle design says is quality. This beer is clearly aimed at drinkers who are picky about what they drink.
Nirvana’s Bavarian Helles Lager pours golden in colour, offering drinkers pleasant biscuit notes from the Munich malt, balanced with subtle Hallertauer hops giving a delicious nectar finish. With its gentle carbonation and just 0.3% ABV, this well-balanced beer is likely to please even the most discerning beer drinker.
Bavarian Helles is many people’s go to, non alcoholic beer for its great taste and golden colour. There are not many AF lagers that can stand up next to the alcoholic versions, this guy certainly can! Tasty 5* lager.
Taste Notes: Golden colour, Pleasant biscuit notes, Natural carbonation, Nectar finish
Serve really cold pairs perfectly with a variety of dishes.

A word about the founders:
The brewery was launched in 2017 by a family of beer enthusiasts with a simple mission; to dedicate itself entirely to the creation of quality alcohol-free craft beers. Coming from a family of beer lovers, when founder Becky’s dad Jim went teetotal, she wanted to ensure that he would carry on feeling included socially and see his face light up again when handed a bottle. Since then Nirvana has opened up a whole new world of great tasting alcohol free beer for a growing movement of folks that like to have a good time but keep their senses intact.
Becky Co Founder of Nirvana with Brother-in-Law Drew says
“Loads of little things have happened along our journey and I feel quite proud to say that we contributed to igniting the alcohol-free movement. The fact that Nirvana was the first female owned alcohol-free beer brand, and is still the only dedicated alcohol-free brand with its own brewery are two things that I’m hugely proud of.”
Nestled in the bustling heart of East London, Nirvana Brewery is on a mission to bring great alcohol-free options to true beer lovers, made the proper way, just like any other craft beer, and with 100% natural ingredients, their fantastic full-flavoured beers come with their own distinctive personalities and benefits.
