The release of alcohol-free Guinness 0.0 has been met with enthusiastic praise from both drinkers and non-drinkers alike. The creamy texture and roasted flavours of this alcohol-free stout really do justice to the full-strength beer, and it’s fast become a favourite in supermarkets. So much so that it’s not always easy to get hold of. So, for the times when you really want a Guinness 0.0 but you just can’t find it, here are some alternatives that we think you’ll love.
Remember, dark beers are brilliant for pairing with food, or even using in your cooking. Consider adding a splash to rich, sauce-based meals such as bolognese or stew. Try pairing with cheese, chocolatey desserts, or intensely savoury dishes. If you’re curious about replacing alcohol in cooking, we’ve written a handy blog for you.
All of these beers are available in our alcohol-free off-licence at 59 Great Portland Street until the 27th March 2022.

Big Drop Galactic Milk Stout
With notes of coffee, cocoa nibs and a lingering hint of sweet vanilla this beer is dark, rich and indulgent.

Shrb Romanov Imperial Stout
This is the first alcohol-free stout I’ve tried that really captures the intensity of an imperial stout. This beer has flavours of bitter dark chocolate and espresso with hints of dark fruits and bourbon. This is one for slow sipping and is a great choice if you’re looking for something big and bold. Order it direct from Shrb.
