Not drinking? There’s a Guinness for that!
The Guinness with everything – except the alcohol. Guinness 0.0 is alcohol-free but boasts the same beautifully smooth taste, perfectly balanced flavor, and unique dark color of the brand that customers know and love.
To create Guinness 0.0, the St James’s Gate brewers start by brewing Guinness exactly as they always have, using the same natural ingredients; water, barley, hops, and yeast; before gently removing the alcohol through a cold filtration method. The cold filtration process allows the alcohol to be filtered out without presenting thermal stress to the beer, protecting the integrity of its taste and character. The brewers then carefully blend and balance the flavors to ensure the distinctive flavor profile and taste characteristics of Guinness.
The resulting product is a stout that is unmistakably Guinness – just without the alcohol. It features the same dark, ruby red liquid, and creamy head, hints of chocolate and coffee, smoothly balanced with bitter, sweet, and roasted notes.
