Low-alcohol beers are having a moment. With many Londoners looking to cut down on their alcohol intake or seeking out a session that doesn’t leave them flat on their face, craft beer brewers are finding solutions that still sate their hopheaded fans.
Gone are the days of drinks like gnat’s piss – from table beers (typically around the 3 percent ABV-mark) to small beers (below 3 percent, and making a comeback thanks in no, er, small part to Small Beer Brewing Co), London’s craft beer bars and bottle shops are now in decent stock of lighter beers that still seriously pack a punch. Below are some of the most sessionable brews in town – ambers, dark beers and pale ales included – cutting back on alcohol but never compromising on drinkability.
