BrewDog has launched a new alcohol-free beer in partnership with heavy metal band Lamb of God, marking the world’s ‘first’ non-alcoholic collaboration beer.
Ghost Walker features a ‘hop-forward flavour’ with less than 0.5% ABV, as BrewDog intends to provide a non-alcohol option that tastes just as good.
The new IPA reportedly offers “tropical aromas [that] harmonise with grassy, pine notes, all sitting on a solid malt baseline”.
The non-alcoholic alternative is named after Lamb of God’s song “Ghost Walking” which was written by band vocalist Randy Blythe as he started his journey towards an alcohol- free lifestyle.
Due to the postponing of the band’s European tour, Ghost Walker was alternatively launched alongside the video premier of the band’s performance of the song under the same name.
Ghost Walker will expand BrewDog’s low- and no-alcohol beer portfolio which currently includes Punk AF, Hazy AF, Wake Up Call and Nanny State.
“This collaboration is our most epic to date. It is also one of the most important, especially now,” said BrewDog co-founder James Watt.
“BrewDog has always been focused on making other people as passionate about craft beer as we are, and that includes people who, like Randy, don’t want alcohol in their beer. Our alcohol-free line of beers offers everyone an alcohol-free alternative for any occasion and we’re thrilled to add Ghost Walker to the line-up.”
Ghost Walker is available on BrewDog’s online shop for shipping across the world and will be available at Lamb of God’s concerts later this year.
Since the outbreak of coronavirus, BrewDog has opened 102 new virtual bars after UK pubs were forced to shut.
