Alcohol-free brewing pioneer Becky Taylor-Kean wins 35 Women Under 35 Award

We are pleased to announce that Nirvana Brewery founder and chief executive, Becky Taylor-Kean, has been awarded a prestigious 35 Women under 35 Management Today award.  The award has been presented in recognition of Taylor-Kean’s role driving Nirvana’s business success and her part in pioneering alcohol-free craft brewing since 2016.

Taylor-Kean (32) represents a new breed of young, entrepreneurial women coming to the fore on the UK’s brewing scene.   As well as driving the business into several new export markets, she has recently successfully led the business through its first private investment round.  The judges were impressed with her determination and dedication in founding and running Nirvana.  She was also earmarked as one of the most innovative and dynamic award-winners from this year’s selection.

Becky Kean, said: “ The alcohol-free craft brewing sector has made leaps and bounds in recent years and it’s exciting to be recognised as a woman who’s part of this evolving brewing success story.  It’s also an honour to be listed alongside 34 other incredible women who are making a real impact in their field of business.”

Kate Magee, Editor, Management Today, said: “The UK is full of talented, visionary, inspiring business women of all ages, working at every level and in all sectors. More often than not, their stories never get told.  We’re proud to do our part in helping to remedy that.”

About Nirvana Brewery:

We at Nirvana believe there’s nothing quite like sharing a beer; beer brings people together. So whether you’re drinking alcohol, staying sober, or shooting for somewhere in between, Nirvana is the common ground that unites us all.

This is why we created Nirvana. Our Founder Becky, coming from a family of beer lovers, was struggling to find a good alcohol-free beer for her teetotal father to enjoy. Wanting to help him feel included again, Becky decided to take matters into her own hands and create a range to help anyone feel included.

Made with 100% natural ingredients, you can enjoy our fantastic full-flavoured beers to your heart’s content without compromising the good times. Just goes to show that life – and beer – tastes better when you do things your way.
