A collaboration between the UK’s only physical brewery dedicated to alcohol-free beer, Nirvana Brewery, and soda producer Square Root, has resulted in the limited edition Tayberry Sour.
The alcohol-free offering is kettle-brewed using tayberries sourced from Sussex, where Square Root buys fruit for its sodas.
According to the partnership, the “0.5% Tayberry Sour gives drinkers pleasant notes of sweet raspberry and blackberry, with a tart and refreshing finish.
“This unusual berry was chosen with a view to put a new taste out to the market, whilst harnessing a familiar beer style”.
Co-founder of Nirvana Brewery, Becky Kean, said that as the industry begins to reopen post-lockdown, consumer demand for alcohol-free options are on the up.
“At 0.5%, the Tayberry Sour gives drinkers a delicious, refreshing beer with the added element of feeling included with friends who may be drinking alcohol. With an alcohol-free beer in their hand, they can enjoy the moment with a fresh head – and we want to show that alcohol-free options can be just as fun, flavoursome and varied as their alcoholic counterparts!”
