The Good Stuff Mission
Help other health conscious drinkers to find and enjoy great tasting low alcohol wines and beer.
The Good Stuff Story
I’ll be honest with you, I love a good beer. Whether it’s out with friends in a favourite pub or a quiet moment at home with a good book, it's one of life's simple joys. There’s nothing like that first sip of a truly great beer when you pause to appreciate the aromas and flavours held within the humble pint glass.
Whilst my drink is beer, I know for many others, they get the same moment of appreciation and happiness from their first taste from a new bottle of wine. These simple pleasures bring a happy contentment over any wine or beer lover.
Depending on your point of view, this simple pleasure also carries with it a downside - alcohol.
For anyone trying to keep their weight in check, alcohol can cause a whole heap of problems:
These problems have really been driven home over the years as I’ve competed in triathlons and distance running over the last 10 years. As I trained for these events, I found my love of beer at loggerheads with my love of sport, especially as I’ve always battled with my weight. Invariably to get my weight down I’d end up giving up drinking for a number of months. Not only did I miss my favourite drinks, but going out became a chore as I repeatedly had to explain why I was on soft drinks.
I got fed up with this and started searching for great non-alcoholic beers and I was lucky enough to find them. Long gone are the days of watery, tasteless imitations of beers. Instead I found a wonderful variety of full flavoured, rich tasting beer.
Inspired by my new discovery, my wife convinced me to try and find her some wine that was equally great tasting, but alcohol free. To our surprise, we found a wide variety of these wines available. These weren’t fancy grape juices, but wines rich with flavour and aroma. They were proper wines, just without the alcohol.
We realised that we can’t be the only people out their who love wine and beer, but didn’t drink them regularly because of the health impacts of alcohol. And so early in 2019, Good Stuff Drinks was born with a simple mission:
Help other health conscious drinkers find and enjoy great tasting low alcohol wines and beer.
We’re slowly building up our store to deliver a range of full flavoured wine and beers all with no or low alcohol quantities. We’ve got huge plans to expand this store beyond just selling beer to our customers, but to deliver great value and excellent customer service to all our customers.
Just like training for our first 5k, we’ve got a lot of hard work and learning ahead of us, but I hope you join us for the ride. It’s going to be a blast and even better, you’ll get to drink lots of wine and beer along the way, all guilt free without any danger of hangovers, spoilt diets or ruined training plans.
Whatever your target, be it to lose weight or set a PB in your next race, we hope you stick with us along the journey. It's going to be a fun ride.
