Big Drop Sour 0.5% – 6/12 x 330ml




Big Drop Sour: don’t be put off by the name.

Tasting notes

The new beer from Big Drop is light, refreshing and tart. It has an acetic, citrus aroma with a smooth, juicy tartness in the finish. It is crisp, dry and perfect on a hot summer’s day.

Drink this beer with something tangy like a good stinky cheese or seafood with a squeeze of lemon.

Big Drop in final

Dry Drinker likes to back – and stock – winners, and so they’re also excited about the success of Big Drop.

Big Drop – the UK’s first brewing company to exclusively make <0.5% ABV beer, and stocked by Dry Drinker – has been shortlisted in the BBC Food & Farming Awards 2018. It’s 1 of 3 finalists in the Best Drinks Producer category and the only one that produces alcohol free drinks.

Big Drop are on a winning streak – Big Drop Pale Ale was Style Winner in the World Beer Awards 2017, while its Stout won Silver in the same awards and Gold in the International Beer Challenge.

How to nominate Big Drop in the Food and Farming Awards

Meet the brewer: Rob Fink from the Big Drop Brewing Co.

Following the birth of his first child, founder of Big Drop, Rob Fink, decided he needed to stop drinking for a while. His job in the City of London meant that he was out a lot with clients and booze played a big part in that. It just wasn’t feasible to continue.

So, he stopped drinking for a period of about 7 months. And driven by a desire to brew the perfect alcohol free stout – his favourite style of beer – he finally teamed up with Johnny Clayton, former head brewer at Wild Beer Co. and a renowned experimental brewer.

‘Weird’ but wonderful brewing process

It was agreed that Big Drop wouldn’t do anything to the beer to remove the alcohol (something which messes with the flavour). Equally, halted fermentation was ruled out. (This is another common method of getting low ABV, which stops the brew halfway through and leaves a flavour and aroma of unfinished beer.)

However, Johnny found a way, although he says other brewers would find the Big Drop methods ‘out and out weird’. However, as a result Big Drop runs a full brewing process from start to finish to produce a full-flavoured beer which stands up against many of its full-strength contemporaries.
