Leading importer Euroboozer has added a trio of low-alcohol and gluten-free beers from Austria’s famous Stiegl brewery.
The new range is being presented for the first time at Imbibe 2018 on July 2 and 3. It includes Stiegl Freibier, Stiegl Grapefruit Radler and Stiegl Paracelsus Gluten Frei.
At 0.5% ABV, Stiegl Freibier is a full-bodied almost non-alcoholic lager. Austrian Saphir hops provide aromatics and citrus bitterness.
Stiegl Grapefruit Radler is naturally cloudy and zesty. The 2.0% ABV beer uses real grapefruit juice alongside Stiegl’s famous Goldbräu beer.
Rounding up the trio is Stiegl Paracelsus Gluten Frei, a 4.9% ABV, bottom-fermented gluten-free beer. The brew is made using a natural process with millet grown on the Stiegl farm and without the use of enzymes to remove gluten.
Since their recent arrival, the Freibier and Gluten Frei have already seen strong interest from the on-trade with listings generated in the Diner venues, The Delaunay, Fischer’s and The Wolseley.
The brewery’s Stiegl Goldbräu and Columbus Pale, which have also just launched on draught will also be available for visitors to try at Imbibe.
Euroboozer founder Martyn Railton said: “In addition to its famous lagers, Stiegl’s low, no and gluten-free beers are of immense quality. It’s great to introduce them to the UK’s innovative and demanding on-trade.
“The category is seeing strong growth and for the first time generating real excitement. We’re looking forward to showcasing this trio at Imbibe.”
