An award-winning ultra-low brewer has this week introduced two of its full-flavour 0.5% ABV alcohol beers to the Aussie market.
Big Drop Brewing Co. was launched in 2016 as the world’s first brewer dedicated to ultra-low alcohol beer by then lawyer Rob Fink and long-time friend James Kindred. Since its inception, Big Drop has won 27 major international beer awards.
In 2019, Big Drop sold over a million bottles and cans worldwide. It contracts brews in batches through a network of brewing partners which means it produces its beer locally and ethically with a minimal carbon footprint.
The two Big Drop Brewing Co’s signature beers, Pine Trail Pale Ale and Uptown Craft Lager, will be available to purchase in 4-packs and offer the perfect alternative for craft beer lovers wanting to cut back on alcohol, but not the flavour.
Pine Trail Pale Ale: This American Pale Ale style beer is a delight for the senses, delivering on all levels. Rosy floral aromas are immediate as you pour, with a light and limey citrus bite on the palate and a balanced but obvious bitterness to finish.
Uptown Craft Lager: Easy drinking, full-flavoured but elegant, this Amber Lager has light herbal and floral hop aromas, a hint of caramel with peppered spiciness on the palate, and a touch of orange at the end.
Brewed locally in Victoria, both beers from Big Drop Brewing Co. embody full flavour, low gluten and low carbs, with the Pale Ale being only 14 carbs and 63 calories per 375ml can, and the Lager being a mere 8 carbs and 41 calories per can.
The Lager is also vegan-friendly.
The beers are initially available nationwide through Dan Murphy’s and coming soon to BWS stores.
