Big Drop goes big for Chicago’s first National Non-Alcoholic Beer Day

Big Drop Brewing Co., the world’s first craft brewery dedicated to non-alcoholic beer, is giving away free cases of non-alcoholic beer, Big Drop Pine Trail Pale and Galactic Extra Dark to block party hosts across the Chicagoland area through October.

Big Drop has created National NA Beer Day on Saturday, Oct. 2 to showcase the radical innovation in NA beer over the last few years. Judged to be the World’s Best No & Low brewer at the 2021 World Beer Awards, Big Drop has led the way from the start.

Big Drop is proud to support the James Beard Foundation’s Open for Good  campaign with a donation of 10 percent of sales of all Big Drop brews during the month of October. The Foundation’s Open for Good programs help independent restaurants survive the Covid-19 crisis and thrive for the long term by providing resources that help restaurants build capacity and come back stronger, more equitable, more sustainable and more resilient. 

“We created NA Beer Day as a way to inspire people to taste the newest offerings in non-alcoholic craft beer,” said Big Drop CEO Rob Fink. “Low and no-alcohol beer originated during Prohibition and was called ‘near beer’ – but really it was nowhere near beer in terms of flavor and fun. Big Drop is brewed naturally to no more than 0.5% alcohol – we don’t strip out the alcohol – that means we keep the big flavors and aromas that stand up against full-strength beers. Try it – I think you’ll like it!”
