UK brewer Big Drop Brewing Co has teamed up with four Nordic peers to launch a range of 0.5% abv collaboration beers.

The four-expression limited edition line, which will roll out in Big Drop’s home market this month, is the second in the UK-based alcohol-free brewer’s ‘World Collab Series’. The Nordic selection follows a series featuring tie-ups with four compatriot brewers.

The latest line-up comprises:

  • Big Drop & Einstök (Iceland) – ‘Arctic Beach’ Coconut Stout
  • Big Drop & Hop Notch (Sweden) – ‘Fläderlätt’ Elderflower IPA
  • Big Drop & Fat Lizard (Finland) – ‘Rye’d Said Fred’ Juniper Rye IPA
  • Big Drop & Amundsen (Norway) – ‘Rush Rider’ Peach Melba Pastry Sour

“These are all world-class breweries with whom we’ve had great fun conjuring-up big-flavoured beers and brewing them naturally without the need for any artificial nonsense to remove the alcohol,” said Big Drop founder & CEO Rob Fink.

In August, the company secured listings in Australian multiple retailers Dan Murphy’s and BWS.
