What happened when we visited the UK’s first alcohol-free brewery

‘No-alcohol’ is the biggest beer trend since ‘craft’, and the UK’s first alcohol-free brewery, London’s Nirvana Brewery, is proof. We stopped by for a chat with co-founder Steve Dass, to discover how and why a passionate beer lover would choose to brew sans booze…

If magic happens when barley meets water, hops and yeast, the work of Dass and his team at Nirvana Brewery, the UK’s first alcohol-free brewery – and the only organic brewery in London, as certified by the Soil Association – is entirely cosmic.

The Nightcap: 31 August

Happy Friday, folks! Here’s The Nightcap to help you roll on into the weekend armed with a plethora of booze news. Always handy if you’re looking to impress down the pub/on a hot date/out in a bar*…

Welcome to the weekend, team! Step away from the workload and pick up a dram. You deserve it. Friday evening is here! (Apologies as always if you’re a non-nine-to-fiver and are indeed working at the weekend… join the vibe when you can.)

It’s been a short week here at MoM Towers thanks to the summer bank holiday Monday. But that hasn’t stopped us bringing you all manner of news over on the blog this week.

On Tuesday we unveiled our latest competition of much excitement – win a VIP trip to Speyside and discover The BenRiach Distillery! Then on Wednesday we got hold of Pernod Ricard’s annual report and crunched the numbers to see how the likes of Jameson, The Glenlivet and Chivas Regal performed over the last year.

Yesterday we had a blog double whammy: Annie talked us through all things aquavit in her beginner’s guide, before we shed a little bit more light onto Diageo’s Special Releases 2018 line-up. Not long until the full reveal: check back on 12 September for details of all 10 bottlings in full.
