We are working with our suppliers Bavaria to bring our customers a new experience in alcohol-free beers.

We are inviting customers who have tried the original Bavaria non-alcoholic beer to take part in a taste test of a brand new recipe.

The taste test will take place at The Alcohol-Free Shop in Manchester on Saturday 25th January (Please note the original dates were the Friday and Saturday but it is now only on the Saturday).

Anyone taking part in the taste test will receive a £10 voucher to spend in our shop.

So, if you live in the north west region, take a trip to Manchester. See the sights, do some shopping and pop into The Alcohol-Free Shop and help shape the future for alcohol-free beer.

 

T-shirts and accessories

A range of accessories have been added to our website that have previously been available only to in-store customers.

We have some great gadgets for keeping wine fresh once opened and new easy to use corkscrews so there’s no struggle with traditional closures.

If you’re a fan of The Alcohol-Free Shop, you can now spread the word with our lovely, top-quality, branded T-shirts.

Staying sober in January doesn't have to be boring!

Many people this year are taking up the Dry January and Dryathon challenges that encourage participants to go dry for 31 days for a healthy start to the New Year.

Dry January is organised by the drink education and campaign group Alcohol Concern and the charity Cancer Research UK is behind Dryathon.

Most people know that alcohol can cause liver disease. It is less well known that alcohol also contributes to an increased risk of a range of cancers.

Research indicates that alcohol-free beers can reduce cholesterol and help prevent some cancers. Some are even recommended for sports enthusiasts due to their isotonic properties.

De-alcoholised wine has all the heart-health benefits of ordinary wine without the risk factor.

Our range of wines and beers offer more choices for those looking for alternatives to alcohol – staying sober in January doesn’t have to be boring!

Merry Christmas and a big thank you

Shop OpeningWe wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and thank you for your continued support throughout 2013.

This has been our busiest and most successful year since we launched in 2006.

Our new store in Manchester has been well received by existing and new customers alike. And we’ve shipped more orders than ever before, and employed more people too. We’re very grateful to be able to continue to grow during such harsh economic times.

None of this would be possible without your support and we send your our genuine thanks.

With best wishes for 2014.

Mail on Sunday gives us thumbs up

We were delighted to be featured in the Mail on Sunday magazine in an article on the health benefits of alcohol-free wine.

They asked us to provide samples so they could test what was available beyond the supermarket shelves.

None of those who reviewed our wines were ‘experts’ but, just like you, they know what they like.

They gave favourable accounts of the wines they enjoyed. So we had lots of new customers and our staff are working at full festive pace.

This has meant some of our most popular wines have temporarily gone out of stock.

We anticipated this, and have replacement stock on the road as we write so you can be sure of receiving your favourite drinks for Christmas.

Some wines and beers are available on pre-order.

There’s still plenty of time for Christmas deliveries but get your order in – while staff last

ps. we’re also due to be reviewed by wine writer Olly Smith in this week’s Mail on Sunday and we expect an even bigger surge in demand – order now to get ahead in the queue!

The Alcohol-Free Shop supports community drama

We were delighted to help VIPs enjoy the red carpet treatment when the Alcohol-Free Shop was invited to support a new theatre production.

Residents in Stockport Greater Manchester formed a community theatre group to raise awareness of the impact of alcohol abuse.

The play was based on personal life stories and findings of local research into the effects of alcohol misuse on individuals, families and the wider community.

Volunteers worked for six months alongside The University of Manchester, as researchers and attracted Arts Council, local authority and health service funding to translate their findings into drama

The play “Pints and Pork Scratchings” premiered at Stockport College and was preceded by an alcohol-free drinks reception when guests enjoyed products from The Alcohol Free Shop.
