Part 12 – Non alcoholic edition – Bird Brewery NON ALK

A wonderfully colourful bottle this time in the Bird Breweries Non Alk IPA. A well-known brewery from the Netherlands makes several great beers for all tastes. The bright and vibrant seaside themed label is defiantly inviting and makes you want to know more.  The beer is an IPA at below 0.3% and a fresh beer for sure.  

A White IPA this beer gets the fresh taste of a mix of barley, malts, wheat, and a large quantity of hops making this a crisp light beer.

Bird Brewery say that Non Alk is a fresh, tropical and tasteful beer, I don’t understand the tropical part but there is no denying this isn’t a bad beer.

More information on this beer curtesy of Bird Brewery webpage says:


The Auk is a black-and-white seabird that resembles a penguin in appearance. Like many seabirds, they are white on the underside, making them difficult for fish to see.


Bird Brewery brews its beer at Jopen. This Haarlem brewery has won many national and international awards in recent years, partly due to their excellent brewing installation.

Bird Brewery started brewing 2016 in Amsterdam with their first beer Rumoerige Roodborst, amazingly for a first beer it was rated as one of the best 50 Amber Ales in the world on the prestigious

They carried on winning awards over the next couple of years bringing out more styles of beers, worth noting they do a lot of work to help nature and birds and donate over 1.2 million litres of drinking water for public use and plant 10,000 trees.

The beer was opened with my wallet…yes you heard right!  My wallet.  The Dango Dapper Bi-fold with the tactical multitool insert.

An enjoyable IPA (yes I know, seems I am getting use to them) but this was a heartier beer not so much IPA but more malty larger. And its only at this point I feel I have to add about the non-alcoholic side of this bottle of beer, and this is again a beer you wouldn’t know was only 0.3% ABV. So this bottle will be given 7.75/10 on the Cooperator edccooperative scale.
