Alcohol-free brewer, Big Drop, has teamed up with four leading Nordic breweries to launch a limited-edition range of 0.5% abv collaboration brews.

The range is the second in Big Drop’s ‘World Collab Series’, curated with renowned beer expert, Melissa Cole, and a showcase for demonstrating the heights that alcohol-free craft beer has reached.

Available from mid-January, the four beers (all 0.5% abv) include: a Coconut Stout, an Elderflower IPA, a Juniper Rye IPA and – last but not least – a vegan-friendly Peach Melba Pastry Sour.

1. Big Drop & Einstök (Iceland): ‘Arctic Beach’ Coconut Stout

Appearance: Black as night

A full-bodied, velvety treat. A blend of the creamy richness of dark chocolate, alongside the goodness of fresh lightly toasted coconut. A burst of roasted malts and subtle coconut flavour will transport your palate to a beachy paradise, whilst you’re snuggled on the sofa.

2. Big Drop & Hop Notch (Sweden): ‘Fläderlätt’ Elderflower IPA 

Appearance: Pale Golden

Refreshment delivered. This well-rounded Elderflower IPA delivers on both the nose and palate. Use of an experimental UK hop ‘Mozart’ generates a unique flavour profile with hints of bitter grapefruit, clean citrus, drawn together by a fresh, fruity elderflower twist.

3. Big Drop & Fat Lizard (Finland): ‘Rye’d Said Fred’ Juniper Rye IPA

Appearance: Golden

A complex blend of flavours, most notably spiciness from the rye heavy mash. Subtle nutty herbal tones, intertwining with assertive, forward botanical notes of juniper. A rich toasty goodness, followed up with a fresh aromatic flourish and a bitter finish.

4. Big Drop & Amundsen (Norway): ‘Rush Rider’ Peach Melba Pastry Sour

Appearance: Pink champagne

An elegant bouquet of vibrant deep raspberry candy with a sour twist. A delicate nose moves to deliver a gentle refreshing sharp bite, before exploding with an intense profile of fresh vanilla, fresh berries and peach pie. A naughty-treat in a can.

Rob Fink, founder and CEO of Big Drop, commented:
“These are all world-class breweries with whom we’ve had great fun conjuring-up big-flavoured beers and brewing them naturally without the need for any artificial nonsense to remove the alcohol. The result isn’t just excellent tasting alcohol-free beer… it’s excellent beer that just happens to be alcohol-free. We’re all about innovation and hope that these special editions will bring the joy of new experiences to people who love great beer.”Big Drop’s World Collab Series #2 costs £9.80 for 4 x 440ml cans and will be available from 18th January 2021.

It has since won 60 international beer awards, including four times ‘World’s Best’ at the World Beer Awards and beating full-strength rivals in blind-tastings on a number of occasions. Big Drop contract brews in batches through a network of brewing partners worldwide, meaning it can produce fresh beer – locally and ethically – with a minimal carbon footprint. Recognised as the market leader in the rapidly growing AF craft beer sector, Big Drop can now be found in over 10,000 locations – including throughout Europe, Australia, Canada and the US. In the UK, Big Drop has listings with major pub groups (eg Mitchells & Butlers), restaurant chains (eg Nando’s) and retailers (eg Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Morrisons and Ocado) as well as on the High Street with Holland & Barrett and on doorsteps with Milk & More.
