Dedicated to brewing flavour-packed beer at a sociable strength, Co-founders James Grundy and Felix James have set out to provide consumers with a compelling option that means they can still enjoy any drinking occasion, without the slowdown.
Having re-invented the brewing process to focus on flavour maximisation over alcohol creation, innovation runs through the heart of Small Beer’s proposition. Using the very best ingredients, they exclusively produce classic beer styles below 2.8%.
Through the 16-1800’s small beer was brewed as a safe alternative to drinking water, enjoyed by children to high society for its hydrating and nutritional properties. After making more than a few tweaks to cater to the modern palate the Small Beer Brew Co. team are brewing beers that are truly rooted in history but made for today.
Co-founder James Grundy says, “We’re delighted to see Small Beer launch in Ocado this month. We ourselves have been part of, and witnessed, a fascinating shift in drinking behaviours over recent years, with many of us being more aware, or simply looking to moderate our alcohol intake. For some it’s about lifestyle; busy with work, family, sport, not wanting to forego the social occasion of great beer with friends whilst avoiding the knock-on effect in other parts of their life.”
Gary Hyde, Senior Ocado Buyer, said, “As demand from our customers for top quality, low alcohol drinks continues to rise, we’re thrilled to add Small Beer Brew Co. to the premium range available on Ocado.”

The Lager is classic pilsner-style with a citrus nose, stone fruit palate, and a fantastic continental bite on the finish. Bright, crisp and fresh. 2.1% ABV, 74 calories, vegan, lactose and naturally gluten free.
With notes of coffee, toast and dark chocolate, the award-winning Dark Lager noses likes a stout or porter but drinks like a lager with a roasted, toasted finish.

The newly launched Session Pale is a ‘true’ session beer, with juicy, tropical aromas and a fresh hoppy bitterness to finish. A beautifully balanced beer. – also available in RTD can! 2.5% ABV, 86 calories, vegan, lactose free.
