Big Drop was launched in October 2016 in the UK by the-then City lawyer Rob Fink, along with his school-friend/band-mate, designer and entrepreneur, James Kindred.

The idea for a brewing business that only made non-alcoholic beer was driven by their own lifestyle changes (eg fatherhood) and the frustration that there were no good non-alcoholic beer options.
Along with renowned experimental brewer, Johnny Clayton (formerly of Wild Beer Co), they’ve perfected techniques to make non-alcoholic craft beer without the need for artificial removal of alcohol. The result doesn’t compromise on taste and yet is no more than 0.5% ABV.
Big Drop doesn’t just use barley. It uses barley, rye, wheat and oats to give great flavour and aroma. And it doesn’t use just one type of each. Across its beers, it uses over 20 speciality grains. Its wide-range of beers includes Stout, Lager, Pale Ale, IPA, and more. So there really is something for everybody.
