A review of Playground IPA.

ABV: less than 0.5%
Calories per bottle: 106 (32 per 100ml)
Score: 5 out of 5

Alcohol-free or otherwise, beer doesn’t get much better than this! It’s all the more remarkable considering that Vanderstreek is a relatively new brewery, established in 2010 when the owners Sander and Ronald start brewing up in a flat in Utrecht.

There really is nothing to dislike about this beer. It’s a great-looking cloudy beer with an intriguing orangey tinge to it. It’s hoppy but that’s not the only flavour. If it didn’t say so on the label, you’d never know it had such a low ABV. In fact, there are plenty of IPAs at 4% ABV that don’t taste as good as this.

We got our samples of Playground from Morgengrot in Manchester, who supply pubs and shops. You can buy it online from Dry Drinker, and from lots of supermarkets soon, we hope!
