Following its recent £750,000 fundraise, Nirvana Brewery has brought back one of its most successful limited-edition brews, a London Porter.
Last seen in 2021, the porter is available alongside Nirvana’s six-strong core range. In addition, the low-/no-alcohol specialist has introduced a 30-litre KeyKeg for its popular Hoppy Pale Ale (0.5% ABV).
The London Porter (also 0.5% ABV) celebrates the brewery’s roots (it’s been based in Leyton since 2016) and a little of the capital’s brewing heritage.
Nirvana’s London Porter is a rich, dark beer featuring multiple roasted malt varieties and the classic British hop variety, Fuggles.

With notes of caramel, coffee, and a touch of chocolate, plus hints of spice and oak, it’s described as warming, complex, and indulgent.
“We’ve already got the widest variety of low/no beer choices, and these two introductions add yet more depth and variety,” said Nirvana Brewery founder Becky Kean.
“The porter was a big seasonal hit last time, while the keg gives publicans and bar owners the chance to offer something other than low/no lager on tap.
“Variety will be key to success in this market, just as much as it is in full-strength beer.”
