A refreshingly different drinks supplier


Beers with a Cause!
 

Producing beer is resource intensive, find out how these brewers are challenging this and helping the world one beer at a time.
 
Small Beer know that brewing is resource intensive with an industry standard of 8-10 pints being used per 1 pint of beer brewed. Using innovative methodology and running the country's only entirely 'dry floor' brewery the team at Small Beer Brew Co are striving to reduce their use of this precious resource. Having cut that figure to just 1.5 pints per pint brewed, they say they're looking to push that even further.
 
Food production is the biggest contributor to climate change but one third of all food is wasted. Toast are here to change that. They brew planet-saving beer with surplus fresh bread. All profits go to charities fixing the food system. Raise a toast. Save the world. Cheers.
 
Whilst all of Freedom's waste water is processed through a natural reed bed system whilst thermal fluid heating keeps them efficient.

 


Taste of the Tropics! 

Looking beyond the sweet and syrupy fruit beers that were once popular, it's now all about the juicy, tropical flavours in a more refined brew.

Fourpure Brewing Company have two cracking juicy beers, their Easy Peeler Citrus Session IPA is super juicy, easy drinking and full of flavour whilst their Juicebox Citrus IPA is pure tropical, fruity pleasure in a glass.
 
Gorgeous Brewery was new to us in July. An independent, family run craft brewery based in London. They have an eclectic, deliciously drinkable range with a focus on hand-crafted quality. All their beers are unfined and unfiltered, so they're vegan, retain a natural haze and have even more flavour. Packing a tropical punch is their Gyrocopter Session IPA - well-hopped with plenty of citrus flavours.
 
Brooklyn's Naranjito is a classic American pale ale pushed a tiny bit further. An extra burst of aromatic hops and a sizable helping of sweet orange peel create just the right pop of citrus. It elevates your favorite meals, brightens spices, and proves what a little orange can do. 
 
Other notable juicy brews include Big Smoke's fruity Pale Ale: Fruju New England and Big Hug's Juicy Pale.

Your 2's and 3's!

Busy drinkers are leading the lower ABV trend - many don't want the hangover the next day! Here's a pick of our sessionable brews that hit the 2-3% ABV mark - your consumers can enjoy that pint or two more.
 

The Small Beer Co take their time to produce their beautiful beers. The six weeks that the team give their beers, compared up to the average of 4-5 days, not only delivers the clean yet pronounced flavour profiles, it allows the beer to 'drop bright' naturally, removing the need for Isinglass and allowing them to retain their vegan credentials. 

Cotswold Brew Co 22 Lager is matured for four weeks, making it taste as good as a typical lager while containing half the alcohol units.

Make waves with Shipyard Low Tide: a low alcohol pale ale with a rich and fruity hop character. 

New to our shelves this year, Van De Streek Playground Non Alcoholic IPA is brewed with five American hops, but mostly without the alcohol! With citrus and tropical flavours, it has a nice bitterness, and more importantly, you can still get behind the wheel after this one. Whilst Brooklyn Special Effects is a hoppy lager with an unexpected piney aroma and pleasantly bitter finish. The beer gets its bready sweetness from a blend of specialty malts, and its surprising nose from dry-hopping with citrus- and pine-forward hopsa technique rarely used in non-alcoholic brewing. 

Big Drop have a range of smashing brews for you to choose from. Believe it or not, their 0.5% beers have won awards against full-strength rivals. So whether you're looking to cut down, cut out or just try something new, Big Drop has crafted something for almost any beer lover.
