Nirvana is a unique prospect in the Low & No alcohol sector for several reasons.
Most brands in the sector do not make their own drinks – they outsource it to larger breweries. We are a true brewery, with lower overheads, more product control, less exposure to market pricing shifts, and more direct customer service. We’re also more agile and innovative
because we live the brand and breathe the malt dust.
We are committed to developing and trialling new ways to make better AF drinks and have the ability to experiment in-house with multiple methods rather than focussing on just one, or outsourcing product development. As a result we have won countless awards for our beer, and built a loyal customer base.
