Nanny State IS HERE
Our hoppy non-alcoholic beer has touched down.
Originally brewed in 2009 as a backlash against the onslaught of UK mass media hysteria when we launched our 18.2% Tokyo*, Nanny State was a liquid protest, designed to make a statement and provide a paranoid hop overdose for a politically correct generation.
Flash forward to today, where we have unleashed this full flavor non-alcoholic beer into the wild, with just as much rebellious passion as before.
Clocking in at 0.5% ABV with 45 IBUs, our non-alcoholic Nanny State features Centennial, Amarillo, Columbus, Cascade, and Simcoe hops, and is intensively dry-hopped with Centennial and Amarillo. The backbone is made up of 8 different speciality malts which combine to give the beer as much body as possible despite it's modest alcohol content.
With a big fruit medley in your face, you’ll get an aroma of ripe citrus, orange, sherbet lemon, and lychee, and touches of herbal and pine. As it hits the palate, the specialty malts work hard to balance out the the barrage of Humulus lupulus we throw at this beer. Amber and Crystal malts add a biscuity sweetness which is quickly balanced and overcome with more fruity hop and resinous flavors, which then cleanse the palate and transcend into a long, refreshing and bitter finish
Dry hopped to the brink and back, this near-beer is the ultimate rejection of ridiculous ABV laws or ideals. We’ll always strive to push ourselves for what beer can be, and push back when The Man wants to monopolize the playing field.
Hands up if you’ve sampled Nanny State yet?
