Dryanuary is back

It is January again, which means that the industry-dividing idea of doing a dryanuary, or dry-january is back. From a health point of view, this is of course not something to be mocked. Of course though, coming from the biased position of being part of the licensed trade, we are not exactly big fans of the idea: January is already a miserable lemonth for us, especially at the moment, so encouraging people to dodge the pub is a further blow. But, you have to roll with things like this, so as well as being advocates of the counter promo of “Tryanauary” (encouraging people to, in moderation, try new beers, new breweries and new styles and to support independent producers and sellers) we also like to see how we can support customers who have made the choice to abstain for a month.

We do this by ensuring we always have something rather special in stock for the dry drinker. Alcohol-Free drinking choices needn’t be dull; we have some mouthwateringly awesome alcohol-free stuff for you… like all three of these Solo alcohol-free beers from our buddies at West Berkshire Brewery – Solo Pale Ale, Solo Pilsner and Solo Peach Pale Ale. All available in the shop , either individually or as part of a mixed six-pack.

Solo Pale Ale: Tropical hop aroma with grassy pine notes and a crisp bitterness.

Solo Pilsner: Refreshing pilsner style lager with a snappy bitterness and fresh, floral aroma.

Solo Peach Pale Ale: Bright citrus aroma with a refreshing peach taste. Light & crisp.

We also stock a couple of excellent kombuchas and a great range of soft drinks. So you can still support your local indie and do a dry January – order for delivery at
