Nirvana Brewery, the UK’s only bricks-and-mortar brewery dedicated to alcohol-free beer, is launching Bavarian Helles Lager.
With the launch of their Bavarian Helles Lager, Nirvana’s range of sub 0.5% ABV brews reaches 7 SKUs. The brewery also has big plans for future beers.
Nirvana’s Co-Founder, Becky Kean, commented: “I enjoy a good lager myself, but the mainstream alcohol-free lagers really didn’t tickle my tastebuds. They’re often an afterthought to breweries’ portfolios, or simply a dealcoholised version of their existing alcoholic offering.
“The lager styles coming out of Germany tend to only have four natural ingredients, yet offer much more complex flavours and natural carbonation. That’s why we decided on a Bavarian Helles Lager as the perfect addition to our alcohol-free line up.”
Kean also hinted at more future options coming out: “The low-and-no alcohol beer market is growing all the time, and we’ve been at the forefront of it. The benefit of having our own brewery is that we’re always testing new things, improving our recipes and coming up with new ideas, so watch this space because we really have scope to do some innovative things.”
Nirvana’s Bavarian Helles Lager offering drinkers ‘pleasant biscuit notes’ from the malts, balanced with Hallertauer hops giving a ‘gentle nectar finish’. It has an ABV of 0.3%.
