Big Drop Launches in U.S. Market with Non-Alcoholic Beers Brewed in Chicago




Big Drop Brewing Co., the world's first craft brewery dedicated to non-alcoholic beer, makes its U.S. debut, brewing its most-popular NA beers in Chicago. Big Drop is recognized for its naturally brewed NA beers that stand shoulder-to-shoulder with full-strength beers, offering a new world of options for beer lovers.

Big Drop was founded in London in 2016 and has expanded internationally by partnering with contract brewers to ensure freshness and minimize its carbon footprint. In Chicago, Big Drop is being brewed at Great Central Brewing Co. The first two beers are Pine Trail Pale and Galactic Extra Dark, with Paradiso IPA following this month.

Big Drop has broken new ground in the NA beer category, winning international accolades and multiple global beer awards, including Gold Medals for Pine Trail Pale and Galactic Extra Dark from the U.S. Open Beer Championship. Both also were named "World's Best" at the 2020 World Beer Awards.

"The interest and demand for NA beers is on the rise," said Big Drop CEO Rob Fink. "Consumers are more conscious of their own health but they don't want to compromise on quality or taste. With Big Drop, beer lovers can enjoy a full-flavored non-alcoholic beer whenever they like – no compromising."

By engineering a brewing technique using special yeast and controlling the temperature during brewing, all Big Drop beers are naturally non-alcoholic, clocking in at .5 percent ABV or less. "We don't remove alcohol from conventionally brewed beer, because when you remove alcohol, flavors often go with it," adds Fink.

In Chicago, Big Drop NA beers are available at Great Central Brewing Co. for curb-side pick-up and soon at retailers across Illinois, western Michigan and the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Big Drop brews also are available online at https://us.bigdropbrew.com/. Six-packs of 12-ounce cans are $12.
