Alcohol-free beer brand LOAH, founded by Hugo Tapp, is providing a space for non-drinkers to get the beers in

The no- and low-alcohol movement has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, with lots of interesting and actually tasty 0% beers entering the market. Now non-alc beer brand LOAH is throwing its hat into the ring by opening London’s first completely non-alcoholic taproom. Taking up an archway spot in Hackney Downs Studios, the LOAH taproom features the brand’s core fruit-flavoured range – Lager Peach, IPA Blood Orange and Lager Lime, all of which are 0.5% ABV – on draught alongside a rotating selection of collab beers, like Tropical Tipple and Dark Fruits, made with other UK brewers.

LOAH beers are brewed in the same way as alcoholic beers, with the aim of achieving 0.5% ABV, rather than removing the alcohol from a full-strength liquid, meaning they’re packed with flavour whilst also being low calorie, low sugar, gluten-free and vegan. As well as sinking a few LOAH pints in the taproom, you can listen to some tunes at the in-store record shop run by BCM, check out the latest works by emerging artists on display in the gallery and exhibition space, and join one of the movie nights and supper clubs planned for the summer. CHEERS.
