Drinkaware's Rommel Moseley: drinks low in alcohol don't have to be low in taste

Drinkaware, CAMRA launch low-alcohol competition

Brewers in Greater London making the most of the trend towards no- and low-alcohol beers have an opportunity to prove their worth with the launch of competition to find the best low alcohol beer brewed in the city.

The competition is being backed by CAMRA and Drinkaware, the alcohol education charity.

Drinkaware director of business development and partnerships Rommel Moseley said, “Drinks that are low in alcohol don’t have to be low on taste and it’s good to see a growing number of brewers producing flavourful beers with lower ABVs, which can help customers to moderate their consumption of alcohol and minimise the harms associated with it.”

The competition is set to take place as part during CAMRA’s London Drinker Beer & Cider Festival, set for 14-16th March 2018 in Camden.

It is open to any beer of 3% ABV of lower that is brewed within the Greater London area. All formats – draught, can and bottle – will be accepted. There is no entry fee, brewers may enter more than one beer and there is no requirement to enter beers in the London Drinker Festival.

If there are a sizable number of entries, it may well be that the competition will be split into categories based on alcoholic strength.

A panel of leading industry lights comprise the no- and low-alcohol judging panel, including John Keeling of Fuller’s, Zeph King of Real Ale Ltd and Paul Hegarty, honorary secretary of the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group.

Those interested in entering their beers should contact Festival organiser Christine Cryne by email – ldforganiser@gmail.com
