Following the mega results at the World Beer Awards 2021, it dawned on us that we have become the UK's most decorated British brewer of ALL TIME!
This year’s medal haul includes the ultimate acclaim of ‘World’s Best’ for two of our 0.5% ABV beers – Paradiso Citra IPA and Galactic Milk Stout. Now with seven ‘World’s Best’ titles under our belt, three of them for Galactic, we have not only topped the table of UK brewers but can lay claim to having the world’s most awarded beer of all time, AF or otherwise. MIC DROP!
Galactic, our rocket to the moon Stout has won 20 of Big Drop’s 70 international beer awards since its launch in 2016. Not all these awards have been specifically for AF beer, however, with both of this year’s winners having previously beaten full-strength rivals in blind tastings. Paradiso, for example, was the UK’s winner in the Specialty IPA category of last year’s World Beer Awards, nudging 6% ABV entries into second and third place. Likewise, Galactic was out-performing regular stouts in the World Beer Awards before it had its own AF category.
At Big Drop, we are all about creating great-tasting beers that just happen to be alcohol-free. The results speak for themselves and reinforce our belief that AF beers, made in the right way (big shout out to our expert brewer, Johnny), don't have to compromise on taste.
