Fresh from exhibiting at the hugely successful Mindful Drinking Festival, Nirvana Brewery, the UK’s only non-alcoholic brewery based in East London, has announced its Kosmic Stout and Tantra Pale Ale will now be stocked in Whole Food stores across the country priced at £2.49.
There are many reasons why a person might choose to drink a non-alcoholic beer: perhaps they’re a designated driver; maybe they’re unable to drink alcohol because of health reasons or simply a lifestyle choice. Whatever a person’s reason for choosing alcohol-free beer, research shows it’s the largest growth sector in the beer industry.
Nirvana aim to do alcohol-free beers, following the same standards of craftsmanship that define craft beer we do not use lactose to bulk up our beer but a mixture of five different malts resulting in a balanced body.
Although a few bigger brand alcohol free beers are on the market, they have a reputation for being bland and tasteless. Nirvana alcohol free beers have been designed to not be watered-down, alcohol-free versions of an existing mass produced alcoholic product, they’ll have an identity that we’re sure will be a hit with retailers and consumers alike…brewed without compromising on quality or taste.
They take the holistic approach, offering a cleaner, healthier alternative and even host ‘beer yoga’ sessions called ‘Mats and Vats’ in the unique surroundings of the brewery on a Thursday. Yogis are invited to take a 75 minute yoga session, hosted by resident instructor, Lizzie, followed by a tasting of Nirvana Brewery’s awesome craft ales along with a selection of home-cooked vegetarian Indian snacks.
The Kosmic Stout – dark and rich with deep aromas of chocolate and hints of vanilla, all well balanced by a smooth toasted malt base.
Tantra – Traditional English pale ale made with lightly roasted barley, giving a caramel malt body that is balanced with a lingering crisp hop bitterness.
