An Ipswich-based low alcohol beer maker has launched a ground-breaking new product

Big Drop Brewing Co says creating its sour beer with just 0.5% ABV took “a lot of planning and expertise.

Founder Rob Fink said: “Our Master Brewer, Johnny Clayton, continues to challenge the norm so that we can offer a range of popular beer styles for those who are choosing to cut back on their alcohol consumption and the sour is an outstanding example of responding to current consumer trends.

“Just because someone may be cutting out or cutting back on alcohol doesn’t mean to say that they have to cut back on variety and taste.”

Sour is the fifth beer in the Big Drop range and follows the successful launches of Spiced Ale and Lager and its award-winning Stout and Pale Ale. The public reaction to the beers had been “fantastic” and comes at an exciting time for the business, which was shortlisted at the BBC Food & Farming Awards 2018, said Rob.
