The Monthly Drop 004

Hiya! Rhian here.

We’re back again for your monthly dose of Big Drop news. Time flies when you’ home?

UK news

Booths, the supermarket chain in northern England now stock our Uptown Craft Lager, Pine Trail Pale Ale, Paradiso Citra IPA and Galactic Milk Stout in cans!

International news

We’re very happy to announce that our beers will soon be available in Iceland, through our new distributor, Nicoland.

In the French Alps, we have just appointed regional distributor Le Verre Gourmand.

We were also lucky enough to receive some pretty stellar reviews from top beer magazine, ProBeer based in Norway and Svenska Dagbladet in Sweden.

We’re Sidechick’s AF listing!

We’re on a roll with chicken joints recently. First Nandos and now Patty and Bun’s latest venture, Sidechick have our Pine Trail Pale Ale as their AF option!

Patty’s ‘bit on the side’ is all about marinated butterfly chicken, spuds and salads. At the moment they’re available for click and collect and via Deliveroo around East London. We’re glad to see AF options becoming a common staple on menus, especially when they’re Big Drops.

Melissa Cole hosted a Big Drop virtual tasting

Beer expert, Melissa Cole hosted a live tasting on our Instagram channel of our newest beers Poolside and Kodama. As ever, Melissa was brilliant and we’ve got to admit, we’re pretty smug we’ve converted her to the Sorachi Ace hop.

Rob and James took part in the Virtual AF Beer Festival

Robin Lomax created the biggest alcohol-free celebration in lockdown via YouTube. Participants purchased a festival box of 12 AF beers and each brewery hosted an interactive tasting. We had a blast – massive props to Robin for this. The world of mindful drinking is certainly thriving, and this is a testament.
Watch our tasting here.

Take a break and breathe!

We know this working from home lark isn’t easy. So, we’ve teamed up with breathing and yoga expert Wibbs Coulson to create an IGTV series to help you find some peace during the busy day. Now more than ever we need to look after our mind, body and souls!

Living Big This Month

Robin cooled off from the heat with his homemade Off Piste Hazelnut Porter and Vanilla ice cream. Wowza.

Stay tuned for what’s next.

Big love,
