BEER WITHOUT THE DOWNSIDES
Do your beers contain alcohol?
Our beers contain a trace amount of alcohol due to the natural fermentation process. However, you cannot become intoxicated after drinking Heaps Normal. It’s not a challenge but this trace amount of alcohol is processed by your body faster than you can drink Heaps Normal. To put it another way, many everyday foods such as ripe bananas and some burger buns contain a similar amount of alcohol to Heaps Normal.
What's in your beers? Does Heaps Normal contain preservatives?
Great news folks. Heaps Normal beers do not contain any preservatives. Our beers only contain water, malt, hops and yeast. We don't believe in putting unnecessary bad stuff in our beers.
In terms of total energy (calories) our Quiet XPA contains 63 calories per can and Another Lager contains 71 calories per can. This is roughly half the calories of regular full strength beers. As a comparison a standard soft drink contains 161 calories on average.
Can you drink Heaps Normal whilst breastfeeding or pregnant?
Yes! Our non-alcoholic beers contain 0.5% ABV – this is similar to the amount of alcohol found in fruit juice or bananas. Alcohol free drinks that are 0.5% ABV or lower are suitable for pregnant women and breastfeeding mums. If you are unsure, we do recommend checking in with your healthcare provider before.
Does Heaps Normal contain gluten?
Our Quiet XPA is a low gluten beer with only 56 ppm of gluten. It is most likely safe to drink for people who have a slight intolerance to gluten.
We tested Another Lager for gluten content and zero gluten was detected. We can’t label the beer as gluten free since it is brewed with cereal grains but it should be very low risk for people with gluten intolerance.
In either case, and especially if you are a celiac, please use your discretion or consult a medical professional if you have any concerns.
