Major export success for UK first alcohol-free craft beer
A Suffolk brewery says it is enjoying major export success with a new alcohol-free craft beer.
Following launch in early August, St Peter's Brewery’s Without® has proved a hit with foreign buyers. The Bungay-based business has secured deals in more than 15 different countries.
It has shipped cases to Canada, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, France and Mexico, among other territories.
“The demand for Without among foreign buyers has been intense from the outset,” says Steve Magnall, CEO at St Peter's Brewery.
“We knew when we launched that Europe and beyond were crying out for a high-quality and full-bodied alcohol-free beer as existing beers in this category are dealcoholised lagers and quite 'thin'. We felt strongly that Without could be the answer.”
The brewery spent three years developing Without and is now gunning for more exports in new geographies.
