Rick’s Near Beer announced the launch of its second non-alcohol craft beer: Rick’s Hazy IPA.
Founded by Certified Cicerone Josh Hare, the entrepreneur behind Texas-based beverage brands Hops & Grain Brewing and Pint & Plow Brewing, Rick’s Near Beer launched in December 2022 with its initial low strength offering, Rick’s Original, the company notes.
“We’re brewing a lineup of beers that can be enjoyed morning, noon and night,” Hare said in a statement. “Rick’s Hazy is for every beer lover, whether you’re celebrating the New Year with a resolution to cut back on your alcohol intake, or you’re looking for a delicious beer to enjoy during happy hour before a commute home after work.”
Available to ship nationwide in time for Dry January, Rick’s Hazy is refreshingly hoppy and juicy and contains less than 0.5% ABV, the company says. The Hazy IPA, full of citrus and tropical fruit flavor and aroma, is brewed with premium malted barley, flaked wheat, loads of Pacific Northwest hops, and Rocky Mountain water, it adds.
Packaged in 12-ounce cans, Rick’s Hazy IPA is available to purchase online in six-packs for $12 by visiting the company’s website, as well as select retailers throughout Texas.
