Style: Non-Alcoholic IPA
Brewery: Bellwoods Brewery
Country: Toronto, Canada
Bellwoods Brewery is always striving to make the best beer possible and they’re equally motivated to make a non-alc beer that stands up to the same set of expectations. Many months into this endeavour, they’ve honed their process to a point they're really happy with.
ABV aside, this non-alcoholic beer has a lot in common with Bellwoods Brewery's BEER beer. Both are made with the same ingredients (barley, oats, yeast, hops, etc.) and the same intent (make something that tastes really good!). As a result, Stay Classy pours just like a beer, with good head retention and soft, pale yellow body. Multiple dry hop additions translate into pronounced hop aromatics and flavours — think citrus zest and yellow grapefruit alongside dank West Coast hop notes for good measure. It’s dry, refreshing and crushable, with a pleasant bitter finish.
