Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday season and that 2014 is a terrific year for you. We had some great press in November and December with articles focusing on two general themes: the fact that there is such a thing as premium non-alcoholic beer that tastes great; and that because of this it should be more socially accepted, especially around the holiday season with greater awareness around drinking and driving. A theme that gets a lot of press in January every year seems to be how to detox from overconsumption in December. What does this mean for the non-alcoholic beer drinker? I guess the closest thing is going from 0.5% to 0.0%. Holsten is a 0.0% German style lager in a distinctive green bottle.
This is what the Beer Expert has to say: Tasting Notes: With a white head and a clear golden body, this German-made lager strikes a balance between sweet and bitter with notes of bread crust and herbs. Food Pairing: The bread crust-like malt flavour will match the sweet nuttiness of falafels (just go easy on the hot sauce) and the bubbly, hoppy finish will cut through its hummus and garlic sauce. Also welcome alongside most salads and white fish. Verdict: A refreshing, crisp lager. Especially recommended for Heineken and Becks lovers.
We are thankful for all the word-of-mouth referrals so please keep telling your friends and family about us and our beer! It may surprise you how many people will consider drinking non-alcoholic beer and more surprisingly the reasons why.
