Sparkling Session Ales

Allagash’s Little Grove is a Light, Low-ABV Refreshing Sparkling Drink

— June 27, 2020 — Lifestyle
Allagash’s Little Grove is a low-calorie, low-alcohol sparkling session ale that appeals more to fans of rosé or wine spritzers than craft beer and hard seltzer fans. The low-ABV, sparkling session ales are available in varieties like blackcurrant or peach and kombucha, which offer refreshingly different flavors than usual.

Allagash took a different approach to the packaging Little Grove, as the cans are much more colorful and abstract than its other offerings. Aesthetically, this was an intentional choice that has the potential for new products to be added in the future, as the free-flowing design can be easily adapted to capture the essence of a flavor with different colors and patterns.
