If you are looking for a non-alcoholic craft beer brewery from the USA that is more sporty than Athletic Brewing – we might have found you one. The website of Surreal Brewing Company is filled with pictures of people doing sports. We found skiing, bouldering, and plenty of outdoorsy activities. What are they really trying to do here?

Surreal Brewing Company definitely is a sporty bunch. They are really focusing on the health part with their brews. They brew low-calorie craft beers that work for everyone and on every occasion. Even when you are exercising it seems!

A unique fact about this brewery is that they are using neither arrested fermentation nor dealcoholization. They have invented their own way to brew alcohol free beer. The patent for their method is currently pending and we are really curious about how they do it. Unfortunately, there is no information about their method at the moment. We hope they will get the patent and maybe share more of it with us in the future.

We’ve taken a look at the history of this NA craft beer brewery and also checked out the best beers from Surreal Brewing.

History of Surreal Brewing Company

Surreal Brewing started their NA craft beer experimentation in 2017. They were founded by Tammer and Donna. It’s family-owned and one of the most important things for them is to make their customers a part of their family.

The story started with them being disappointed in the non-alcoholic craft beers available a few years ago. According to us there’s no better way to solve such a problem than to start brewing it yourself.

They started experimenting with brewing NA beers and eventually, they released their first beer in June 2018. It was their Chandelier Red IPA that still is one of their flagship beers.

Today they are one of the most important forces in the American NA craft beer scene. They are really pushing for beers low in calories but they also have a few gluten-free beers.

Best Surreal Brewing Company Beers

If you are looking for gluten-free beer from Surreal Brewing they have two options. One is their Chandelier Red IPA and the other one is their Natural Bridges Kolsch. Let’s take a swing from the Chandelier and have a look at some of the best beers from Surreal Brewing.

Chandelier Red IPA

As we already mentioned, this was the first beer that Surreal Brewing Company released back in 2018. It’s a tropical IPA with a caramelly backbone. The red comes from the roasted malts that give the beer its toasty flavor.

  • ABV: 0.4%
  • IBU: 48
  • Calories: 33 kcal per can
  • Gluten-free: Yes
  • Vegan: Not sure

Juicy Mavs Hazy IPA

The Surreal Juicy Mavs is a Juicy IPA. Tropical fruits and citrus but with plenty of fruity esters which is normal in a Hazy IPA. Apart from malted barley, yeast, and hops, it also has oats for a thicker mouthfeel.

  • ABV: 0.5%
  • IBU: N/A
  • Calories: 33 kcal per can
  • Gluten-free: No
  • Vegan: Not sure

Creatives IPA

The Surreal Creatives IPA is a west coast IPA. It is actually my favorite style of IPA and I have yet to drink a non-alcoholic West Coast IPA. The Creatives IPA is brewed with the Norwegian Kveik yeast that allows for a higher fermenting temperature. It also uses a new hop that doesn’t have a name. Very enticing!

  • ABV: 0.4%
  • IBU: 48
  • Calories: 33 kcal per can
  • Gluten-free: Yes
  • Vegan: Not sure

The Surreal Brewing Kolsch is also a beer that we would recommend to people that want a lighter-tasting beer.
