Our Favourites: Lower & No-Alcohol Beer Recommendations for Dry Januar – Wiper and True

Team Favourites: Wiper and True's Top Lower & No-Alcohol Beer Recommendations

Whether you're attempting a drier January or just looking for something new to toast another year of drinking great beer, these days there's an ever-increasingly diverse offering of lower strength & low/no-alcohol cans & bottles to choose between. As dank DIPAs and adjunct-packed stouts continue to dominate tastebuds and bottle shop shelves, these lower ABV beers can make a truly welcome change for the drinker. 

But where to start? How to separate the wheat (ho ho) from the chaff? Luckily your devoted Wiper and True research assistants are on hand to help. We asked our team for their favourite low-and-no-alcohol beers, and are delighted to share their recommendations with you. Let us know your hot picks, too! 

Joe, Sales Manager
Track | Tuya | 3.0% Table Beer

Joe says: "The first time I had Tuya from Track was at the last Little Summer Beer bash that Deya hosted. Having been sipping big fruit IPAs and DIPAs only moments earlier, I was blown away by how much body Track had managed to squeeze into such a tiny beer."

Charlie, Packaging Team
Arbor Ales x Mash Gang | Day Tripper | 0.5% IPA

Charlie says: "I think this is a really interesting beer, with a great aroma and an extraordinary colour.”

Alice, Marketing Manager
Donzoko | Lil Foam | 2.8% Lager

Alice says: "Little Foam (Lil' foam to its pals) is truly the most enjoyable of small beers. Banging bready body with a kind of white wine spritziness from Nelson Sauvin. Just lovely."

Tom, E-Commerce Manager, & Tim, South West Account Manager
Lucky Saint | Lucky Saint | 0.5% Unfiltered Lager

Tom says: "It's challenging to stand out in the alcohol free market but Lucky Saint does it well. It's my midweek beer of choice - I'd pair with a green Thai curry. The citrus hop aromas lift the curry while the sweet malts and crisp bitter finish help balance any spice"

Tim says: "I like Lucky Saint because it actually tastes like a beer, compared to a lot of other low ABV lagers I've tried, which are all very sweet. I'd also like to give an honourable mention to Guinness 0.0. Guinness is one of my favourite drinks anyway so having an alcohol free version is dreamy. The taste is super close to the real deal and you still get great head."

Marvin, Head Brewer
Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu | Weissbier Alkoholfrei | 0.5% Wheat Beer

Marvin says: "My fav alcohol-free beer is Franzikaner Alkoholfrei. I find it amazing how an alcohol-free wheat beer made its way to the sport world as a nutritious isotonic drink, with lots of sponsorship in professional sports and local events such as the city marathon, and so on. That shows me that beer can be so much more than only a drink you have in a pub or at parties.

Brulo | All the beers! 

Michael says: "All the beers from Brulo have a surprisingly satisfying full body and very vibrant hop aromas."

Martin, Commercial Director
Beak | Lulla | 3.5% Table Pale

Martin says: "My favourite lower ABV beer is Lulla from Beak. The depth of flavour and mouthfeel is so good. Refreshing post-Christmas palette cleansing flavours too!"Beak, Lulla
