In a nutshell: Full flavoured, low alcohol Scottish Pale Ale from Aberdeenshire's Brewdog Brewery.
The lowdown: Brewing full flavoured craft beer at 0.5% is no easy task. Packed with loads of Centennial, Amarillo, Columbus and Simcoe hops, dry hopped to the brink and back and back sitting at 45 IBUS Nanny State is a force to be reckoned with.
Style - Low & No Alcohol Ales ABV 0.5% - Very Low Alcohol
Fed up with industrially brewed lagers and stuffy old fashioned ales, Scottish micro-brewery, Brewdog was established by two young brewers, Martin Dickie and James Watt, in April 2007 in Fraserburgh. They've since moved to a new brewery nearby in Ellon
Both only 24 at the time, they leased a building, got some scary bank loans and spent most of the money on stainless steel vats and Brewdog was born. Now one of Scotlands largest independent breweries, they make innovative, full-flavour and aromatic beers that always break brewing boundaries and expectations.
All Brew Dog beers are made from fresh, natural ingredients with no preservatives, addidtives or pasteurisation.
