EVANSTON, Illinois – Temperance Beer Co. is excited to announce the release of its first non-alcoholic brew just in time for dry January. Near Tears is a near beer double dry-hopped with Amarillo and Mosaic hops. It pours a hazy pale straw color with a foamy white head. Though its notable flavors are reminiscent of a saison, Near Tears clocks in at just 0.3% ABV.
“Near Tears is the brew Temperance was meant to make—it’s the ultimate ‘temperance beer,’” said Temperance’s founder Josh Gilbert. “Our brewers are always up for a challenge, so this fall we talked about creating an N/A recipe for dry January. Last January was a rough go, sales-wise, so we wanted to be able to offer a flavorful brew that would not only give our dry-January friends a reason to leave the house, but also would be delicious enough for anyone to drink.”
“I’ve never had a non-alcoholic brew as tasty as Near Tears,” explained Gilbert. “The aromas are enticing, the body is light but firm,” he continued, “possessing a tang and brightness, and it finishes perfectly dry. It’s the antidote to the darkest month of the year.”
“Near Tears” double dry-hopped near beer will be available on Friday, January 6 on tap, only at the brewery.
