Your guide on where to drink non-alcoholic beverages in Newcastle

The non-alcoholic movement has been gaining momentum in recent years, thanks to the help of Dry July. The ever-growing list of non-alc spirits, beers, and wine means it's way easier, and tastier, to break up the booze!

nort modus brewing newcastle

The Newcastle hospo scene's jumping on the dry wagon with some venues taking their non-alc range, almost, as seriously as their alc endeavours. Whether you’re cutting the booze out altogether or just want a less intense headache, check out the non-alc offerings across the city.

Modus Brewing

In a first for the non-alc scene, Modus Brewing launched their 100% crafted, low cal and super popular Nort Beer not only in bottles and cans but on the tap! A rarity due to the absence of alcohol causing the liquid on tap to freeze, the challenge was accepted and conquered by the Modus team who now bring you the freshest non-alc beer flowing from the tap. Now you can go completely stealth-like with your drinking or slip a Nort in between your regular line up to lessen the hangover pain.

Their non-alc menu also extends into delicious cocktails and a variety of wines and beer;
- Grapefruit No Gin Fizz: Seedlip Gin, Grapefruit, Lemon, Egg White, Agave
- Amaretti Sour: Lyre's Amaretti, Lemon, Agave, Egg White, Bitters
- NORT Refreshing Ale, PA, XPA and IPA
Plus Minus Wines - Pinot Gris, Shiraz, Blanc
Where: 20 Merewether St, Merewether
