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.
Classic IPA This crowd-pleaser uses mosaic hops, packing a punchy hit perfect for a hot summer’s day. Classic IPA has a traditional hoppy aroma when you crack it open, with mango and grapefruit and a hint of floral flavours to come. Despite it appearing to be highly carbonated on the initial pour the level is actually quite low, meaning it’s a bit thin but this makes it a classic thirst-quenching drink, perfect for a swift drink down on a warm day straight out of the fridge. On the nose, you get pine and grapefruit citrus which is carried through into the taste of the beer, along with pleasant grapefruit citrus and pine from the hops. This is not the most memorable alcohol free beer on the market but if you want a tasty thirst quenching drink on a warm day you would go far to beat it.
Taste Notes: Light amber body, citrus aromas, hoppy notes of pine & spice
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.
