Made by Adnams
Beer has been brewed on the same site in Southwold for at least 670 years. Our long history gives us firm foundations and we look forward to an exciting and sustainable future.
It’s Ghost Ship, but not as you know it. Adnams managed to squeeze 100% of the taste into 0.5% abv. This is no apparition; it really is a low alcohol beer!
Ghost Ship 0.5% has the taste and aroma of Ghost Ship 4.5%, but with almost all the alcohol removed. There are lots of ways to create low alcohol beer, but many methods involve either changing the recipe or the way it is brewed, and this often alters the flavour.
Adnams invested in a de-alcoholiser; a reverse osmosis plant which allows the team to brew Ghost Ship 4.5% and then take out the alcohol. It is all very high tech, but what it does is allow Ghost Ship to sail away almost free from alcohol but remain full of its original flavours and aromas. So you’ll still get to experience that famous citrus kick and smell lovely lemon and lime, when occasion or preference dictates less alcohol.
