A fast, climate-friendly and cost-efficient fermentation solution that can brew 0.0% beer without any compromises

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. 


Our solution

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).

Yeast format for agile and safe process

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.
