TWØBAYS Gluten-Free Session Ale Claims Gold In World Beer Cup

Session Ale from TWØBAYS has won gold in the Gluten-Free Beer category at the World Beer Cup in Las Vegas. It's a remarkable achievement for the Dromana-based brewery at the most prestigious beer competition on the planet.

No Alcohol: All Choice

There's a multitude of reasons why people seek out alcohol-free beers and the good news is that the choice has never been broader. Ahead of Dry July, we caught up with some of the people behind the more interesting non-alc beers.

The Year Of No Booze

In 2020, Australia witnessed the launch of a number of alcohol-free brewing companies and brands, and in 2021 sales rocketed, quality rose and options blossomed. As 2022 starts, look at why booze-free beer has struck such a chord.

No Gluten. All Gold

One of the most eye-catching moments at the 2021 AIBAs was O'Brien Beer's six golds in the Specialty category. We chatted to the founder of the GF beer pioneers as they come to the end of an equity crowdfunding campaign.

Getting Blind With Crafty: Non-Alcoholic Beer

The Rise Of Activebeer

We're already written numerous times about non-alcoholic beer in 2020. Now, two Aussie companies are looking to take things a step further when it comes to healthy drinking with the launch of beers designed for enjoyment post-exercise.

More Sober, More Often

As Ocsober kicks off, the choices for anyone wanting an booze-free beer, wine or spirit in their hand is bigger than ever before. Heck, there's even a new online retailer specialising in them.

High Sobriety

As Dry July kicks off, we look at the rise of alcohol-free beers: how a new yeast strain is helping brewers create them affordably, the challenges involved in brewing them, and the opportunities that lie ahead.

The Sobah Option

There's a growing focus on lower alcohol options across the drinks industry. Within the local beer world, Sobah are looking to go a step further, with the Aboriginal-owned and run operation creating non-alcoholic craft beers.
