Dry January has never been easier and Athletic Brewing is here to help you stay focused and committed to a healthy lifestyle. Creator, Bill Shufelt, was on a mission to eat, drink and live healthy, but drinking was a stumbling block that kept him from his goals.

When he cut alcohol out of his life, he realized there were not many non-alcoholic options when hanging out with friends at bars, restaurants and sporting events. He recognized a big void in the market and saw an opportunity.

He teamed up with an awarded craft brewer and they began brewing over 100 batches of homebrew hoping to perfect their process. They wanted to offer more non-alcoholic variety than the world has ever seen. The result is a full line of beers that contain less than .5% alcohol, made with organic malt and has only 70 calories.
