Alcohol-free beers are becoming compelling enough to crave
Consumers are increasingly demanding good non-alcoholic alternatives that support more mindful consumption and healthy living. Sustainability is also a key attribute consumers want to see in the food products and beverages they choose. Standing out in this area can differentiate both a product and a brand.
SMARTBEV® NEER® is a maltose-negative yeast technology that creates the full beer experience without the alcohol. The NEER® yeast is unique as it can only metabolize monosaccharides and is crabtree negative. When given oxygen, it will respire and be metabolically active without producing any ethanol. These two features are what enable NEER® to brew alcohol-free beer (0.0% ABV).
Brewing with SMARTBEV® NEER®
Select the NEER® strain that fits your beer
The SMARTBEV® NEER® range consists of three different Pichia kluyveri yeast strains that all brew tasty NAB/AFB.
Yeast format for agile and safe process
The product format is also unique and key for the successful production of non-alcoholic / alcohol-free beer. SMARTBEV® NEER® comes in the Frozen Liquid Yeast (FLY) format securing the highest level of purity, long shelf life and most importantly direct pitching into the fermentation tank.
SMARTBEV® NEER® is available in two different pack sizes for 50hL or 500hL brews.
NEER®: a real brewing solution
Water + malt + hops and yeast to ferment is the basic formula of beer that has yielded incredible beers of all varieties. NEER® offers a solution to continue crafting using the same basic ingredients and principles for the alcohol-free beers.
