If a cold, craft beer is more your taste, then Hoplark may be the non-alcoholic brew for you. Friends Dean Eberhardt and Andrew Markley were at a craft brewery while Dean was nearly finishing up a month off of drinking when he realized it wasn’t the buzz of beer he missed, it was the ritual and the craft beer experience.
An aha-moment later, Hoplark was born. The idea was to brew tea like beer, with the hops, but without sugars, additives, or any fermentation. Now you can enjoy the taste of craft beer without the buzz.

5. Seedlip Spirits
Seedlip Spirits offers botanical, non-alcoholic spirits to help you level up your non-alcoholic cocktail game. It all started when founder Ben Branson stumbled upon physician John French’s non-alcoholic recipes from “The Art of Distillation” published in 1651. A lost art, over 300 years ago, it was common for physicians to distill herbal remedies using copper stills, harnessing the power of nature & alchemy to cure ailments.
Bringing this practice into the modern-day, Seedlip has perfected a six-week maceration, distillation, filtration, and blending process where each individual botanical ingredient is distilled separately, before blending. This process results in a liquid devoid of alcohol and sugar. From a non-alcoholic bloody mary to an espresso martini, Seedlip spirits offers a high-end and flavorful alternative to your favorite cocktails.
Hiyo offers a “social tonic” that provides a similar stress-relieving, mood-boosting effect that people usually seek from alcohol, but instead from healthy, functional ingredients including adaptogens, natural nootropics, and functional botanicals. Whether seeking a blissful boost, a way to destress, or simply a better way to socialize while sober, Hiyo offers a variety of refreshing flavors.
