This is a list of 50 of the lowest carb non alcoholic beers in the world. I have personally tried and reviewed 48 of them but i could not leave out the other 2. One is the lowest carb beer and the other is in the top 5, so they just had to be included.
For many beer drinkers and certainly non alcoholic beer drinkers, finding a low carb beer that is actually good to drink, is the holy grail. You can see where all 48 of the beers i have reviewed fit into my Best Non Alcoholic Beer rankings by following the link.
The 50 lowest carb non alcoholic beers in the world
I have written a full article, titled “How many carbs are in non alcoholic beer“, where i collated all the 110 beers i have reviewed that gave carb data.
I found the average non alcoholic beer has 4.75g of carbs per 100ml and 16.85g of carbs per 12fl oz.
The USDA state the average alcoholic beer has 3.55g of carbs per 100ml and 12.6g of carbs in a 12fl oz serving.
This would mean that the average non alcoholic beer has 4.25g more carbs per 12fl oz serving which is an extra 34% more calories per serving.
Knowing the average carbs in a non alcoholic beer enables you to see just how low some of the top 50 are in terms of their carb load.
So i’m sure you want to see in a bit more detail some of the ultra lowest carb non alcoholic beers and then the full list of the top 50.
The 6 lowest carb non alcoholic beers in the world.
The lowest 6 carb non alcoholic beers have a hugely impressive, minuscule carb load. All of them have less than 1g of carbs per 100ml. Compare this to the 50th which has 4.4g of carbs per 100ml and you can see they are ultra skinny in carbs
1. Partake Pale
Sometimes working out how many carbs is a beer at various quantities is hard. With Partake Pale tho it is easy. Why? It literally has no carbs, zero carbs!
Partake pale has 0.0g of carbs per 100ml and 0.0g of carbs per 12fl oz.
This is the only beer in the world, non or alcoholic, which has managed to perform this feat.It is quite remarkable and i really don’t know how they have done it but it is highly impressive isn’t it.
No beer can go lower, you cant get minus carbs so this will never be beaten.
It is one of the 2 beers which i have not been able to order to my area to try, but i am working on it. From reviews i have read, it doesn’t appear to be too thin and is pretty flavourful.
2. Drop Bear Yuzu Pale Ale
Drop Bear are a UK brewery which specialises in low carb and calorie, non alcoholic beers.
Their Yuzu pale ale weighs in with only 0.4g of carbs per 100ml and 1.42g of carbs per 12fl oz.
This is the lowest carb beer which i have tried and it was decent. The yuzu flavour and hoppy pale ale was nice but you could tell this was ultra low carbs and had a touch of the fizzy flavoured water about it.
The average non alcoholic beer has nearly x12 the carbs of Yuzu pale ale.
3. Drop Bear Tropical IPA
Getting 2 beers in the top 3 is a fantastic result by Drop Bear.
Their Tropical IPA has 0.5g of carbs per 100ml and 1.775g of carbs per 12fl oz, meaning it has just a fraction more than their Yuzu pale ale.
Unfortunately i just didn’t really like the flavour here. I thought it had a very bitter finish and the flavours just didn’t marry up. I didn’t think it was worth buying ti for the carb saving alone as it wasn’t an enjoyable drink.
4. Partake IPA
The second Partake beer has the same joint lowest calorie count in the world (10kcal per 12fl oz) but does this with some carbs, not no carbs like their Partake Pale.
Partake IPA has 0.56g of carbs per 100ml and 2g of carb per 12fl oz.
This is still extremely low, indeed, the 4th lowest carb total that i can find in the world.
It is the second of the 2 beers in my top 50 i have not been able to source to try but stay tuned, i will get it somehow.
5. UNLTD. IPA
UNLTD.IPA use maltodextrin to add body to the beer in the absence of much carbohydrate.
Maltodextrin is a white powder made from corn, rice, potato starch, or wheat. It has been added here as it is flavourless and doesn’t contain calories but will add to the body and mouthfeel of the beer.
UNLTD. IPA has 1g of carbs per 100ml and 3.55g of carbs per 12fl oz.
It is also the lowest calorie beer which i have reviewed at 14.2kcal per 12fl oz.
I actually really liked this beer. It had bags of flavour and did not feel like an ultra low carb beer. I gave it a 9/10 which is high praise.
6. Brewdog Nanny State
Nanny State is one of the original low carb and low calorie beers.
Nanny State has 1g of carbs per 100ml and 3.55g of carbs per 12fl oz, the same as ULTD. IPA.
They make up for the lack of carb body with 8 different malts and 5 different hops. It really does pack in the flavour and i ranked this my 11th overall favourite beer.
If you want a great low carb, low calorie beer, this is the one for you.
