Pohjala Tundra Non-alcoholic IPA (0.5% ABV)
A refreshing citrus-forward non-alcoholic IPA brewed with spruce tips.
An overripe mango and melon mix with oat biscuits and fresh citrus taste. Hints of refreshing spruce resin and a pleasant tingle of carbonation join the aftertaste, with a final touch of freshly zested lemon.
Põhjala was founded in Tallinn, Estonia at the end of 2011 by four Estonian beer enthusiasts and home brewers.
Soon thereafter the company was joined by a Scottish head brewer, Chris Pilkington, with a few years of Brewdog experience under his belt.
The first Põhjala beer, Öö Imperial Baltic Porter, was released in the beginning of 2013 and for most of that year, their beers were contract-brewed in other breweries’ production facilities. Construction of their first brewery was completed in April 2014 in Tallinn’s Nõmme district.
Alcohol Free Beers are made just like the alcoholic ones with water, yeast, hops and barley. Some are brewed to a lower ABV and some have the alcohol removed through various techniques. Across Europe beers below 0.5% ABV are classed as alcohol free. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.
