Non-alcoholic craft beer continues to grow and is expected to be a $25 billion market by 2024. With more breweries brewing NA options, Surreal Brewing Company is offering two great beers for any fan of good brew without the buzz.
Non-alcoholic beer isn’t new, but up until recently, the options just weren’t there. Now craft brewers have jumped in to offer great tasting beer without the alcohol. Surreal Brewing Company offers two for those that want full-flavor without the buzz.
Chandelier Red IPA
Chandelier Red IPA pours a deep clear mahogany with a small head of white foam atop, which dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a bit of lacing on the walls of the glass.
Aroma of rich amber and caramel malt, with a slight sweetness in the nose.
Taking a sip, you find slightly sweet caramel malt up front, with a smooth toasted malt body backing it. A hint of fruity hop bitterness, with notes of citrus and light peach. The body is a bit thin, though it makes this beer very easy drinking.
Alcohol and residual sugars are where most of the calories in beer come from. While craft beers often weigh in at 200 calories or more per 12oz, non-alcoholic beers tend to be far less calorically heavy. Chandelier Red IPA has only 45 calories per can. Enjoy a few without the guilt that you’re throwing your diet off course.
17 Mile Porter
This porter pours a murky brown with a small tan head that settles, leaving just a ring around the edge of the glass.
Aroma of roasted grain and a hint of coffee in the nose.
Dark chocolate malt and a touch of earthy hops before big coffee in the aftertaste. It’s almost as if fresh coffee grounds were added right to the malt bill or post-fermentation. Body is a bit thin but that again is something alcohol normally helps to build. Easy drinking and coffee-kicking.
