Non-alcoholic beer has come a long way from when it first started appearing in grocery stores. Harmon’s is brewed in Toronto and while it is not entirely non-alcoholic (it sits at less than 0.5%) we believe this still counts for Dry January or those choosing not to drink due to health or lifestyle. These beers are TASTY! Harmon’s believe the best way to make great beer is to work within existing brewing frameworks. They don’t use fancy equipment or special technology to remove the alcohol after fermentation, just clever recipe design and attention to detail.
At the heart of their approach is the belief that great beer needs quality ingredients. It’s why all of Harmon’s recipes use certified organic ingredients.
Seen here are some of their classic beers as well as two seasonals.
False Start Marzen (seasonal) – This classic Germain amber lager offers a smooth sip, restrained noble character and a balanced malty finish. It won a Gold Medal in the “No-to-Low Alcohol” Category at the 2022 Ontario Brewing Awards – and we can see why! This was one of our favourites of the Harmon’s beers.
Harvest Ale (seasonal) – This is Harmon’s ode to the farmers who make great brewing ingredients possible. Cascade hops and a hint of citrus zest balance out the light amber colour with a crisp refreshing finish.
Jack Pine Pale Ale – A sunset orange non-alc pale ale that is full of Pacific Northwest citrus & pine hop flavour. Brewed with a blend of malted barley, wheat & oats.
Lunch Box Lagered Ale – A lagered ale with delicate fruity notes paired with gentle hop character in a light golden malt profile. Brewed with a blend of malted barley & wheat.
Half-Day Hazy IPA – A dry-hopped non-alcoholic New England-style IPA that has a tropical aroma and a citrus punch! Brewed with a blend of malted barley, wheat & oats.
What do we like about Harmon’s Craft Brewing: Their beers are thoughtful and tasty – these do not seem like NA beers and they’re using organic ingredients. Plus, their branding is pretty dang cool.
