The Beavertown stable are UK and further afield classics. Their funky artwork is instantly recognisable, as is their distinctive flavours.
Will their non alcoholic IPA live up to the hype?
Lazer Crush review
Brewery – Beavertown
Country – UK
Style – Pilsner malt, IPA
ABV – 0.3%
KCal – 25 (100ml)
Sugar content – 3.0 (100ml)
Carbohydrate content – 5.9 (100ml)
Tasting – Light in colour from the pour got me worried. Was i in for an insipid watery brew? No, not at all thankfully. You think Beavertown you think hops and in this you get hops and flavour.
It does taste and feel light but not empty. There is a decent amount of sugar in there but i’ll let them off. It’s a really nice drop.
Verdict – 7.5/10. Nice indeed. Maybe if they got that same flavour with less sugar it would be an 8.5

When we decided to brew an AF IPA, we wanted to roll a bit differently. Rather than brewing with small amounts of malt or dealcoholizing after fermentation, for Lazer Crush we used a clever strain of yeast that fully ferments our crisp pilsner malt without producing alcohol and adds a hint of peachy fruit to boot.
Then we laid down some heavy-duty hops. Azacca for ripe mango with a hint of fresh pine, Amarillo gives bags of sweet orange and Citra adds the zesty citrus and grapefruit bitterness that we all want in an IPA.
The result is a rocket-fueled, turbocharged, laser-sharp IPA at a Monday to Sunday crushable 0.3%
