The Atlanta-based, non-alcoholic brewing company Rightside Brewing is launching this year with the release of two non-alcoholic beers in bars, restaurants, and select retailers across the Southeast.
Rightside Brewing has partnered with Big Kettle Brewing to brew and package Rightside’s two beers, an India Pale Ale and Citrus Wheat. These drinks will be Atlanta’s first locally-brewed non-alcoholic beers, according to a press release Wednesday.
“Rightside Brewing’s purpose is to create an experience for those that want a choice other than alcohol. In an industry traditionally seen as stuffy, we see the tide is changing to serve a growing demand for alcohol alternatives,” Rightside founder Emree Woods said in the release. “The South has an incredible craft beer scene. I’m excited to be part of that while adding a non-alcoholic beer, brewed right there in the area.”
Rightside Brewing started when Woods was pregnant with her two children and realized that the options are limited for adults who choose not to drink. With her background in the beverage and startup industries, Woods founded Rightside to create a beer similar to its alcoholic counterpart that removed the stigma attached to non-alcoholic beers.
Rightside Brewing currently doesn’t have any plans to open their own dedicated brewery or tap room.
