Best served chilled

Launched to market in July 2022, Hiatus Beers is all about brewing crisp, refreshing, full-flavoured, non-alcoholic beer.  The founders (Jules Ryan, Nic Sandery and Nick Detmold) have been in the alcoholic drinks industry for 20 years and with age, health and young families all had become interested in the ‘no and low’ space, more from a perspective of managing alcohol consumption versus removing it completely. Jules and Nick shared the view there was room in the market for a premium dedicated non-alcohol beer brand and Nic was already making some fantastic non-alcoholic beers at his brewery Molly Rose in Melbourne. Jules had previously worked with both Nick and Nic and was the common link and from the initial catch-up it was clear the three were a great fit of skills and experience and they all saw the same opportunity.

Who are Hiatus Beers for?

Hiatus Beers are for anyone who is looking to take a break from alcohol. It was incredibly important to Jules, Nic and Nick to develop a brand and beer that was inclusive and that everyone could enjoy, beer drinkers and non-beer drinkers. At the same time the founders, long time beer industry participants, wanted to create a beer they could enjoy if ther were having a day or week off alcohol, or as a ‘spacer’ drink  before wine or beer to avoid layering alcohol on alcohol.

Enjoy a Hiatus

So if you are thinking about taking a break for a day, a week, a month or just the next round, check out the first release Non-Alcoholic Pacific Ale (NAPA) with all the classic tropical aromas and flavours and a hint of balancing bitterness.
