“NOLO” – no and low alcohol drinks are top tipple amongst consumers

Nielsen data to 26 December 2020 reveal “nolo” drinks continue to gain popularity amongst consumers with sales of alcohol-free beer (AFB) growing by 29.9% in the last year.

We have long embraced the growing trend and are delighted to offer a selection of options that are uncompromising on taste, quality and enjoyment alike. So without further ado, here's Carlsberg Marston's Brewing Companys alcohol-free beer line up:

Brooklyn Special Effects

Firstly, Brooklyn Special Effects is a hoppy 0.4% lager with an unexpected piney aroma and pleasantly bitter finish. The beer gets its bready sweetness from a blend of pale caramel, and dark roasted Munich malts, and its surprising nose from dry-hopping with Mosaic, Citra and Amarillo hops - a technique rarely used in alcohol-free brewing. It tastes just like a regular beer, but therein lies the special effect: it's not.

Carlsberg Nordic

Next is CMBC’s Danish brand, Carlsberg Nordic. Refreshing with a crisp, hoppy bite, Carlsberg Nordic is everything Danes expect from a great beer…and it’s alcohol-free. Brewed using a blend of quality hop varieties along with pilsner and caramel malt, it is a great tasting beer that you can enjoy any time.

ERDINGER Alkoholfrei

This non-alcoholic drink is not only a real energiser but also low in calories, with just 125 kcal per 0.5-litre bottle, and made exclusively from natural ingredients. This alcohol-free beer is a cloudy wheat beer full of sweetness, fruitiness and soft mouthwatering filling. As for its taste, it will, in fact, easily compare to a regular wheat beer.

San Miguel 0,0

San Miguel 0.0%. All of the aroma, flavour, freshness and quality of a beer – without the alcohol. As the pioneer of its category in Spain, San Miguel 0.0% was chosen as the best Spanish alcohol-free beer by the World Beer Awards 2015.

Shipyard Low Tide

Shipyard American Low Tide, a 0.5% ABV pale ale, was launched in 2019. This juicy, tropical Pale Ale, has a fullness that belies its low alcohol.
