Nirvana No and Low-Alcohol Brewery : Cloudy Lemon Lager & Hefeweizen (wheat) beer

For dads who like a beer but don’t like the alcohol then Nirvana have you covered. There is a wide range of low and no alcohol beer, the latest are the Cloudy Lemon Lager and Hefeweizen (wheat) Beer (pictured).

The Cloudy Lemon Lager (0.2% ABV) draws inspiration from the ‘radler’ beer tradition in southern Germany – mixing Nirvana’s Helles lager 50:50 with sparkling natural lemonade, resulting in a light refreshing beer that has delicious tart undertones. It’s so good that it’s one of very few low-alcohol beers to have won a prestigious ‘Masters’ award from Drinks Business magazine. 

The Bavarian Hefeweizen (0.3% ABV) is a naturally cloudy wheat beer that pays homage to one of Germany’s most revered brewing styles. Its high percentage of wheat yeast lends it a sweet and soft taste with hints of banana, cloves and spice.

Nirvana was the first-ever brewery in the UK dedicated to crafting no and low-alcohol beers.

A case of 12 starts at £25 available from Nirvana Brewery
