2022 Past Drinks of The Week

DRINK OF THE WEEK
10th January 2022
Sheppy's Low Alcohol Cider
Generally available approx 1.30 500ml bottle
Drinker Rating 90

Continuing with the low/no alcohol recommendations I really rate this brilliant cider from Sheppy's - it says low alcohol but it's 0.5% - about the same alcohol as you would get in a ripe banana - can we just say 'virtually alcohol free'. So if you're havign a month off the booze I still think this is ok for you.

It's very much like Sheppy's Classic Draught Cider in it's toward medium in sweetness but that's balanced with a really refreshing acidity which makes is bright and mouthwatering - really like biting into a crisp green apple.

Perfect if you're scaling back on the sauce.




DRINK OF THE WEEK
3rd January 2022
Guinness 0.0%
Generally available 4.00 for 4x440ml cans
Drinker Rating 90

I don't do Dry January - it's my birthday month for a start off - bu I know many folk do try to cut down at this time of year and if that's you then you're in for a treat.

On the YouTube link below you'll see a little round-up of my best picks of the no/low alcohol beers and my two faves from this list are Luck Saint - a pilsner style lager at 0.5% (the same as a ripe banana) and Guinness 0.0%.

Guinness is a real feat as it's not jsut recreating a zero alcohol version of a beer - with this one there's so much more to it - the look and mouthfeel have to be spot on too and by god they've cracked it. It's magnificent.
