India Pale Ales are the classic drink to have with a curry. Also, enjoy alongside a blue cheese such as Gorgonzola, and a spicy pudding like ginger cake.
Innovative craft brewery
Kehrwieder has been rate the Best Brewer of Hamburg for four years (RATEBEER BEST)
Significantly, Kehrwieder was the first German brewery to brew a non-alcoholic IPA — üNN (It was also the first to brew a dry hopped lager, Prototyp).
Every Hamburg citizen knows the legend of the sea travellers, who were greeted by their families with the greeting Kehrwieder. … which means ‘come back’ in English
Like the sailors before him, master craft brewer Olli Wesseloh spent time travelling the Americas before returning home to the old port city of Hamburg.
And he brought back treasures they had found abroad. Alongside new world beers, they revived long forgotten old beers styles.
Furthermore, Olli is always trying to rethink new and old beer styles and put a new twist to them.
Alcohol free craft IPA üNN
They talk beer, brew beer, sell beer, write beer. They truly live beer at Kehrwieder.
Thirsty work! And yet if they quenched their thirst every time with one of their own award-winning alcoholic beers they would have not been very productive.
So they pondered whether non-alcoholic could go hand in hand with full flavour. The only question was how.
They finally found the answer in 2015, with a special yeast that can only ferment very few of the sugars available in a regular beer wort.
It starts fermenting like a regular yeast but runs out of food before it has produced 0.4% ABV.
After that the yeast is still alive and available for maturation.
Full brewing process
So, notably we can produce our non-alcoholic IPA üNN in exactly the same way as their other beers without any ‘technological tricks’.
It’s a full brewing process, dry-hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic, but only 0.4% ABV.
