The UK craft beer scene has long been one of the most exciting in the world, producing magnificent brews that are exported all over the world.

In fact, the Great British pint has long been lauded, with tourists flocking to the pubs for a pint the moment they land.

As times change and more people are shunning alcohol, or seeking help in a detox clinic to look after their health and wellbeing, the market has shifted somewhat, with non-alcoholic beers now hugely popular. And it’s Britain once again that leads the way.

The 0% beer market is growing at a phenomenal rate, and there are many great flavours to be trying. So if you’re looking for the best of the best, without the hangovers, here are the five UK breweries that are leading the way when it comes to their 0% offering right now…


Love them or loathe them, BrewDog has long been a trailblazer in the industry and it’s having a substantial impact on the non-alcoholic beer market with its Punk AF brew. Styled on the Punk IPA, it’s a bold and hoppy 0% IPA that told the world that non-alcoholic beer could be fun and flavoursome too.

Nanny State is another great offering from them, with a complex hop profile that’s made it one of the most popular 0% beers around.

Big Drop Brewing Co.

Big Drop Brewing Co. is entirely dedicated to producing non-alcoholic beers, making it a leader in the 0% market. 

Having won many awards, they produce a range of beers, including a notable Galactic Milk Stout that is well worth trying. It’s creamy, it’s rich and offers notes of chocolate and coffee. It’s a fantastic stout, just without the alcohol. However, they also produce a range of pales, IPAs and more too.


Adnams, a historic brewery based in Southwold, Suffolk, has embraced the 0% trend with its Ghost Ship Alcohol-Free pale ale. This beer is brewed to the same recipe as their popular Ghost Ship 4.5% ABV, ensuring that it retains the same citrus and biscuit notes that fans love. 

Adnams uses a de-alcoholisation process to remove the alcohol while preserving the flavour, making it a favourite among those who enjoy traditional British ales. Their commitment to sustainability and quality further enhances their reputation in the non-alcoholic market.

Heineken 0.0

Many wouldn’t perhaps place Heineken into this bracket. Firstly, it’s a Dutch brewery, but its UK operations have had a significant impact on the non-alcoholic industry with Heineken 0.0. not only found in pubs right across the country, but also has become the number one go to for many.

It’s been widely praised for its non alcoholic offering, and the availability of it makes it worthy of this list.

Infinite Session

Infinite Session is a relatively new player in the 0% market but has quickly made a name for itself with its dedication to producing high-quality, alcohol-free craft beers. Their range includes Pale, IPA, and Pils, each offering robust flavours and a satisfying beer experience without the alcohol. 

Infinite Session uses advanced brewing techniques and high-quality ingredients to ensure their beers stand out in terms of taste and mouthfeel. Their focus on creating beers that are suitable for any occasion has resonated with a growing number of mindful drinkers.
