Find out where to bulk buy low and no alcohol beer for the on and off trade in the UK.
While innovations in the production and improvements in the quality of non-alcoholic beer have helped fuel this growth, it’s changes in people’s habits that’s driving these sales. Around 6 in 10 of us say we’re trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, while 1 in 5 of adults in the UK don’t drink at all.
But this doesn’t necessarily lead to less people visiting pubs, bars and restaurants. In fact, those leading a healthy lifestyle are more likely to go drinking at least once a week, with the majority saying the provision of healthy drinks impacts where they decide to eat and drink.
This is why it’s so important that pubs, bars and restaurants to offer a decent selection of non-alcoholic drinks, including non-alcoholic beer.

You can find low and no alcohol beer using the filter on the website’s search. Product lines include Adnam’s Ghost Ship, Vandestreek Playground IPA, Lucky Saint, several beers from Big Drop, Brooklyn Brewery Special Effects, Guinness Pure Brew and Budweiser Prohibition.
Keg non-alcoholic beers for draught systems include Ghost Ship and Heineken 0.0.
With Eebria Trade, you order via its website and then the breweries deliver directly to you. The price you see on the website usually includes delivery.
Most beers are in cans or bottles although there’s the odd keg beer from the likes of Nirvana and Big Drop if you’re wanting to serve non-alcoholic beer on tap.
The easiest way to source non-alcoholic beer on the site is to browse all beers then filter the list by ABV.
James Clay and Sons
James Clay was originally set up 40-odd years ago as an importer of brews from the Netherlands and Belgium. It now distributes specialist and craft beers from the UK and beyond with three warehouses around the UK.
It can be tricky to find beers under 0.5% ABV on the website’s search (the filter function wasn’t working properly when I checked). When you do though, you’ll find low and no beers from Brewdog, Brooklyn Brewery, Infinite Session, Lucky Saint and Maisel’s.
Jolly Good Beer
Jolly Good Beer’s goal is to supply ‘brewery fresh” craft beer from small and independent breweries. It does this by storing all products in cold storage before delivering them in refrigerated vehicles.
Jolly Good Beer delivers to London, the south east and the Midlands. Its low and no alcohol beers include brews from Nirvana and Thornbridge.
Small Beer Wholesale
Despite the name, Small Beer isn’t a specialist low and no alcohol beer wholesaler. But it does have a decent selection of non-alcoholic beer alongside full-strength cask ales, wines, ciders and spirits.
The website doesn’t include a search option – you have to download a brochure for the latest product lists.
Pivovar started as an importer in 2003. It now also supplies beer and lager to the on and off trade.
It can deliver direct to areas in the north of England, including Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Leeds. It uses delivery partners for the rest of mainland UK.
Its limited no and low selection includes beers from Thornbridge, Cipher, Samuel Smith and Hawkshead.
Beer Paradise is a York-based wholesaler and importer of specialist beers. You’ll find its NA beer in its “free from” section, so be careful you don’t mix up gluten free with alcohol free.
Its non-alcoholic range includes beers from Big Drop, Samuel Smith and Tiny Rebel.
Beer Paradise uses couriers for most of its deliveries, with the minimum order for UK mainland deliveries set at £500.
