Since 2006 Hogie has been brewing beer and his homebrews became something of local legend on Prince Edward Island. Years later, a group of friends got together and decided to turn this crazy passion for brewing into a business and so began Upstreet Brewing.
NON-ALCOHOLIC BEER – 0.4% abv
Introducing Libra’s second flavour, the Hazy IPA. Dry-hopped with Strata, Idaho 7, El Dorado and Comet. At 50 calories a can, Libra is a light, crisp IPA with a refreshing amount of citrus hoppiness, and a crisp finish. The desired hops and aromas of craft beer are not compromised for containing only 0.4% alcohol. While this IPA embodies only a fraction of the calories and alcohol contents a normal craft beer would, it leaves you feeling refreshed, rather than run down.
Other non-alcoholic beers are composed by removing, or boiling off, all alcohol after the beer is produced. While this is a frequent traditional method, it also removes a lot of flavour. It was obvious the technique had to be optimized in order to achieve the desired full-body flavours.
The brewing process consisted of a lot of trial and error, two years worth to be specific! Finally, it was discovered that using a combination of traditional technique with unique adjustments would retain the elements of a great tasting craft beer.
