Our drinks menu for the Popup Patio
Brewdog Nanny State (0.5%, 330ml) – £3.00
Low-alcohol ale will never be the same. Brewdog changed the game with this one. In their own words: “Brewing a full flavoured craft beer at 0.5% is no easy task. Packed with loads of Centennial, Amarillo, Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops, dry hopped to the brink and back and sitting at 45 IBUS, Nanny State is a force to be reckoned with. With a backbone of 8 different speciality malts, Nanny State will tantalise your taste buds and leave you yearning for more. ” Testify! (Ingredients: water, barley, hops, yeast. For allergens, including ingredients containing gluten, see ingredients list in bold.)
Veltins Alkoholfrei (0.5%, 330ml) – £3.00
They say: “Tangy, alcohol-free beer with a slightly fruity aroma, fine bitterness and tangy finish.” We say: “They’re not wrong.” If you like a lager that has something to say for itself you’re in luck. Stands head and shoulders above weak, insipid imitations.
Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Alkoholfrei (0.5%, 330ml) – £3.00
“The non-alcoholic Tannezäpfle is brewed out of an authentic Rothaus full beer, which we specifically brew for the Rothaus Non-alcoholic Tannenzäpfle. To retain the typical and well-balanced Rothaus Pils characteristics during the dealcoholization process, this beer is brewed with a higher original gravity (14.5 %) and lower IBU’s (25). Just like our popular Rothaus Pils, our Non-alcoholic Tannenzäpfle is characterized by a robust and elegant flavor. Naturally, our Non-alcoholic Tannenzäpfle is isotonic.” Serious stuff.
Bernard Free Amber (0.5%, 500ml) – £3.50
Bernard says: “This non-alcoholic semi-dark beer is produced using the original brewing procedure with pasteurization and has an amber colour and combines the harmony of a sweet caramel aroma with a pleasant bitter taste.” And Bernard is bang on.
Arcobräu Weissbier Hell (0.5%, 500ml) – £3.50
According to Arcobräu: “Tastes exactly like a premium Weissbier should taste – sparkling and full-flavoured. An alcohol free thirst quencher, which provides essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Has less calories than an Apfelschorle (traditional mixture of apple juice and sparkling water).” We can’t argue with that. This extremely decent wheat beer really holds its own in a category packed with class brews.
Arcobräu Radler (0.5%, 500ml) – £3.50
From the makers: “Tastes like a RADLER should, but without alcohol. By the way: Our RADLER alcohol-free was the first alcohol-free RADLER in germany.” By now maybe you’re thinking – but what is a RADLER? Well, RADLER means “cyclist” in German. But the beautiful truth is this. A RADLER is a shandy. A really refreshing combination of low-alcohol beer and lemonade.
AND UNION Der Graf von Bayer (0.4%, 500ml) – £4.00
