Nanny State is a low alcohol pale ale beer with a malty, plummy flavour and a tropical aroma. If you’re wondering whether this BrewDog concoction is alcohol free, here’s the straight answer: it’s 0.5% AV, which means it’s about the same alcohol content as a ripe banana, and contains 0.2 units of alcohol per bottle. Not nearly enough to get you tipsy and legally classed as “alcohol free” by many countries. How many calories are in Nanny State? Around 26 per bottle, it turns out. This beer also contains zero fat and 6.2g of carbs.
Nanny State beer is described by BrewDog as “a brigade of speciality malts and North American hops”. It’s not easy to brew a full-flavoured craft beer with only 0.5% alcohol, but BrewDog have done a fine job. This BrewDog alcohol free beer contains Centennial, Amarillo, Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops. Instead of using lactose like a lot of brewers do to achieve a full bodied low alcohol beer, BrewDog have squeezed in 8 different types of specialty malt and the result is a beer that’s packed with flavour. Why not try it for yourself?
