If you’re looking for alcohol free beer options, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are now many great options available. These alcohol free beers are ideal for people who want to enjoy a beer without having to worry about their alcohol consumption. In this article, we’ll explore the best alcohol free beers in Australia today, all available to purchase online for delivery.

Number 1: Heaps Normal XPA

A delicious and refreshing take on the XPA style, Heaps Normal are leading the way when it comes to alcohol free beer. First launched in 2020 the XPA, which stands for Extra Pale Ale, has become their flagship beer and one of the best selling alcohol free beers in Australia. Expect aromas of citrus and tropical fruits balanced with a malty sweetness and subtle bitterness.

Style: Extra Pale Ale

ABV: 0.5%

Origin: Melbourne, Victoria

Number 2: Hop Nation Mind Ya Head

Another XPA from Hop Nation, which has been crafting hop forward brews in Footscray, Melbourne since 2015, and this beer is no different. Generously dry hopped with Simcoe, Vic Secret and Galaxy, Mind Ya Head packs a flavour punch - but with zero alcohol.

Style: Extra Pale Ale

ABV: 0.5%

Origin: Melbourne, Australia


Number 3: Big Shed Desi Driver

Big Shed Brewing Company was started in 2002 when Adelaide mates Craig and Jason started brewing in (you guessed it) their shed together. Desi Driver continues their ethos of brewing tasty brews and has a citrus, passionfruit, pine and resin flavour again due to dry hopping. The subtle malt flavour lets the hops really dominate the palate. To add to the beer's drinkability, the bitterness is mild and balanced, and a slight acidity to provide some added complexity.

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 0.5%

Origin: Adelaide, Australia


Number 4: Bridge Road Free Time

Bridge Road has been a mainstay of the Australian Craft Beer community since their inception in 2005. Free Time is a Pale Ale they were fine tuning for over 2 years, with a vibrant, juicy hop aroma, mild bitterness and a clean finish, featuring Citra, Simcoe and Enigma hops. It has everything that you’ve come to expect from a Bridge Road beer - minus the alcohol!

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 0.5%

Origin: Beechworth, Victoria


Number 5: Upflow New World IPA

Upflow is another brewery that has committed to only brewing alcohol free beers. This award winning IPA gets a slight hazy appearance from the addition of malted wheat, along with heaps of US hop varieties, including Mosaic, Citra and Amarillo as well as Vic Secret from Australia. Bold flavours of mango, passionfruit, grapefruit & pine are matched with a clean malt platform so those juicy hops can really shine, before a dry, lingering hop bitterness on the finish.

Style: IPA

ABV: 0.5%

Origin: Kew, Victoria

Alcohol free beers are often seen as a bland alternative to the real thing, but with the right attention to detail and the right ingredients, these brews can be just as tasty as any other beer. So, if you’re looking to try something new, we recommend starting your journey with one of these options.
