The best alcohol-free beers

Dry January? Alcohol-free beers are no longer tasteless as these amazing examples demonstrate

Low alcohol and alcohol-free beer has a long reputation for not having much flavour, but times have changed, and these days you can get your hands on a variety of enjoyable alcohol-free beers (less than 0.05% alcohol). Our pick includes a German classic, a pale ale from a cutting-edge new brewery and Nanny State from BrewDog.

Big Drop / Stout / 0.05%

Big Drop Brewing Co is a brewery that is dedicated to producing exceptional beers that are less than 0.5% ABV beer. There’s a definite market for it (low alcohol beers are some of our best selling ones at Beer Hawk), and they are getting better all the time. This stout, however, marks a new stage in complex, interesting and characterful low alcohol
