They are calling this a game changer.
“As consumer attitudes toward alcohol consumption evolve, we’re expanding our capabilities to scale this highest-quality non-alcoholic beer that rivals the flavor and aroma experience of a full-strength craft beer across the U.S. and beyond,” Peter Skrbek, CEO of Deschutes Brewery, said in a statement. “Bringing non-alcoholic production in-house opens the door to expansion in a top growing sub-category of craft.”
The brewery expects to produce non-alcoholic beer onsite by the end of the year. They also plan on developing new non-alcoholic beers.
