WHAT’S IN THE BEER?
Water, barley, hops, yeast, vitamin C, vitamin D. Aside from some needed vitamins, we keep it real. A classic English base malt provides the foundation. And we’ll go as far as to say we use Citra and Amarillo hops mainly — can’t give you all the goods ;-)
Why wouldn’t we? We don’t need to explain to you why these vitamins are important. We set out to give you more with TUESDAY — more time, more living and simply more benefit. And adding a little of these two important vitamins is one way we can live up to that promise.
No moderation required! The amount we include is, to say the least, a slight amount. We certainly didn’t want to limit how many of our beers you can enjoy. But hey, every little vitamin kick you get is a good thing. You’re welcome!
No, our beer isn’t gluten free… currently our recipes require malted barley, a source of gluten. But you never know, maybe we’ll explore that downstream?!
WHAT’S UP WITH NON-ALCOHOLIC BEERS?
First, we start by brewing phenomenal beer using a mainly standard brewing process. We’re super picky and perfectionists… but we’ve found our perfect recipe and process to avoid the undesirable characteristics many beers in the NA space possess. Then, once the beer has matured, we use state of the art equipment to separate the alcohol from the rest of the liquid. Once we reach a % ABV (alcohol by volume) of less than 0.5%, it is canned and pasteurised (no preservatives here) for stability and consumer safety. It’s then ready for final packaging and shipped to our beautiful clients and consumers!
Good question, however, there isn’t a totally clear consensus. The use of these terms as they relate to beverage ABV (alcohol by volume) varies from country to country, and sometimes, may vary from region to region within a country. There is growing consensus in North America that “non-alcoholic” or “NA” beer has an ABV less than 0.5% and “alcohol free” would be reserved for beer which has an ABV of 0.0%. All TUESDAY beer is less than 0.5% ABV, and therefore, non-alcoholic or NA.
Hell no! Although the brewing process of NA beer is identical to full ABV beers, there are unique processes and equipment required to separate out that unwanted alcohol. Additionally, because of the low ABV (less than 0.5%), additional quality control and processing steps must be taken to ensure the product is stable and safe to drink anytime. This adds significantly more time and cost. Of course, it’s well worth our trouble and we know you’ll enjoy the maximum effort we take to deliver an exceptional product.
Yes, very low amounts. Our beers range between 0.4%-0.5%, but always below 0.5%, the accepted limit for non-alcoholic beverages. For perspective, this is roughly the same level as in everyday fruit juices with some, such as prune juice, being as high as 3%. Even bananas and bread have low amounts of alcohol due to natural fermentation.
Like us, you may have already figured this out. For those of you still in bed nursing your hangover, here are some things to ponder; How much can you get done when you’re at your best? Be it at work or play, being at the top of your game means greater success. Period. We can still run a marathon, snowboard or fly a plane… so there’s that. Of course the effect all of this has on your collective mental health is probably the icing on the cake.
This is all fine and dandy — NA beer has to offer everything full ABV beer does, like relieve stress or refresh your body AND taste good. Enter TUESDAY.
Yes. Legally speaking, under-18’s can purchase low and non-alcoholic beers. This is because the Licensing Act 2003 states that alcohol means beer, wine, cider, spirits and other liquors over 0.5% ABV. Therefore, any drink below 0.5% ABV is not classed as alcohol so relevant ‘underage laws’ do not apply.
Technically there is nothing wrong with drinking a non-alcoholic beverage while driving, barring perhaps distracted driving potential. And NA Beer isn’t classified as alcohol. However, this is one of those scenarios where the optics may outweigh the technical. You shouldn’t be surprised if you’re pulled over while drinking a non-alcoholic beer. NA beers look identical to regular beers.
Furthermore, most NA beers contain a small amount of alcohol; around 0.5% or less per serving. At that limit, you could theoretically fail a breathalyser after just a few non-alcoholic drinks. If your personal limit or your juristiction's legal blood-alcohol level while behind the wheel is 0.0, then you would be above that while drinking TUESDAY. Use your discretion.
Due to the removal of alcohol, NA beer requires another approach to ensure the product is stable and safe to drink anytime. We pasteurise our beer to ensure the highest quality beer is delivered to you. Although we recommend six months after brewed on date for best quality, it’s completely fine for much longer.
Although there are no known studies evaluating the safety of consuming non-alcoholic beverages during pregnancy or breastfeeding, no alcohol is the only way to completely be sure. Therefore abstinence from alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic beverages will always be the safest approach.
It’s unlikely that moderate amounts of NA beer would pose any harm, we advise expecting mothers to consult their doctor before making decisions about their diet.
HOW DO I GET AHOLD OF YOU?
We love supporting and working with other local businesses. Use our online form to connect… make sure to provide some context and the right team member will be sure to reach out within five business days.
We’re always looking for great people to elevate our team. Send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will be sure to get back to you within a reasonable time frame.
Although we’d love to have our beer at local watering holes the world over, NA beer takes some special care in serving on tap. Not saying it won’t happen. We’re just not at a place where it makes sense just yet. When that changes we’ll be sure to let everyone know.
HOW DOES ORDERING WORK?
Yes, and no. We have free shipping on six 4-packs or more, for economic reasons. If you hit that mark, then yes. If you don’t, shipping is on you.
Just one 4-pack… but why stop there, you’ll need another so quickly.
Depends. If you order and select Trexity (for Calgary orders only), you'll get tracking information. If your order ships with Canada Post, you'll have to check your mailbox regularly.
Returns! Never. Kidding. Of course, we want to make sure you’re completely satisfied with your order. If any of your TUESDAY shipments are damaged or don’t meet your expectations. Take a pic and fire it our way at email@example.com and we’ll get in touch to sort it out.
