Nirvana Brewery Elderflower Lager 0.5% x Wise Bartender collab returns by popular demand for Platinum Jubilee

Alcohol-free brewing pioneers Nirvana Brewery and speciality AF retailer Wise Bartender are delighted to announce a second outing for their highly popular Elderflower Lager limited-edition collaboration.  Released just in time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, we hope this unique summertime brew will be the perfect accompaniment to the nation’s celebrations.

In what the duo believes to be a first in the realm of non-alcoholic beers, they have brewed a classic lager lifted with the addition of seasonal elderflower essence, coming in at 0.5% ABV.

Dreamt up and brewed in Nirvana’s own East London premises, the UK’s only brewery dedicated to alcohol-free beer, the beer was fermented low and slow just like a good lager should be. A generous addition of seasonal elderflower essence brings just the right balance of sweet and floral flavours to the beer, with the lager base lending sweet biscuit malts and a balanced flavour.

Vienna malts bring characteristic lager aromas on the pour, giving a straw-coloured body. The brew was dry hopped with a light touch of Cascade to bolster its floral and fruity characters before the final addition of the elderflower essence, resulting in a bev which is deliciously thirst-quenching and undeniably moreish.

Becky Kean, Co-founder at Nirvana Brewery said: “We’re really excited to bring back this very popular special with long time Nirvana stockist and AF superstar Wise Bartender for this beer! As the alcohol-free beer pioneers in the UK, creating new styles and innovating is at the heart of what we do, so when they originally approached us asking if we could make their dream of an alcohol-free Elderflower Lager a reality, we jumped at the chance to bring something fresh to the market!”

Kean continues: “At Nirvana, we’re all about bringing people together for social occasions.  With elderflower being the quintessential scent of a British summer, we think this beer is the perfect tipple to share with friends and family over the Jubilee celebrations.”

Tom Ward, Founder at Wise Bartender said: “We are so excited to be working with Nirvana Brewery on this very special collab. It captures everything that we wanted from a summery beer. The idea for this beer started on a summer holiday in 2020 when we were trying a range of Elderflower drinks…I guess you could say the rest is history!”

The duo’s floral wonder is available for the trade to purchase for a limited time by emailing, while customers can pick up the brew on both brand’s webshops. It will also be available to try and buy exclusively at Wise Bartender’s WiseFest taking place in July at Wayside Farm in Somerset.

Whether you’re choosing to swerve the booze just for the night, or forever, Nirvana’s Elderflower Lager is an excellent choice for a refreshing drink without the hangover.

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.
