Lucky Saint 

Try and try again. This seemed to be the mantra of Luke Boase, the founder of Lucky Saint. Fed up with drinking mediocre alcohol-free beers he decided to venture to Germany to develop a unique and genuinely tasty drink … and he came up with alcohol-free Lucky Saint beer.

So what makes Lucky Saint so special? Well for one they use their own particular yeast strain to achieve a distinctive flavour. In addition, they also ‘condition’ the beer for over 40 days meaning it doesn’t require filtering; which generally thins out a beer.

So with all this in mind, and with a bunch of awards behind them I had high expectations when trying Lucky Saint. What did I think of this beer? Well, you’ll just have to read below and find out.

Is Lucky Saint any good?


Lucky Saint has a refreshing and light malty taste. This alcohol-free beer balances out very well, it is not too carbonated and has just enough body with a reasonably dry finish. You can certainly taste the malt kicking into action when you take your first gulp with a little bit of bitterness that adds to the overall flavour. An extremely enjoyable beer to drink … and the proof? Well, I opened up another bottle as soon as I had finished that one!

Aroma & Appearance

As you can see from the photo Lucky Saint pours out medium amber in colour and is a little hazy; due to the lack of filtration (which is a good thing). Just like the taste, you get an enjoyable fruity, hoppy, malty aroma, and hoorah there is even a frothy head to enjoy.

Bonus points

If an alcohol-free beer is easily available it is generally a good sign that the product in question is of the highest quality and Lucky Saint is readily found in supermarkets, online specialists, and an increasing number of pubs and bars. Lucky Saint is also one of the lowest calories beers I’ve come across (16 Kcal per 10ml) and also vegan friendly. It does contain barley so not suitable for gluten-free drinkers.

Where can I buy Lucky Saint?

At the time of writing, you can find this alcohol-free beer in a number of supermarkets as well as the following alcohol-free specialist retailers. Currently, Lucky Saint isn’t available in the US but I hope it will be soon given how great it is.
