Adaptogens 01

Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that have been well studied to elicit powerful effects on your body's response to stress, anxiety, fatigue and overall wellbeing. The most well known adaptogen is CBD but the compounds we use seem to have more robust scientific evidence supporting their mood-boosting properties.

You can take adaptogens by adding them to food or beverages or take them as tinctures. Adaptogens bring your body back to a steady balance by managing both physical and mental stressors.

Our Unwind Blend uses a combination of three complimentary adaptogens for a more pronounced effect.

Whilst it is possible that taking the pure forms of these adaptogens can lead to some adverse gastric effects, the concentration in Collider is not high enough to elicit this sort of response. Having said this, everyone is different, so if you do feel any adverse side effects then we would recommend you to stop drinking until symptoms pass and seek help from a medical professional should symptoms persist.

ALCOHOL FREE 02

No. Collider is classed as ‘alcohol free’ in Europe and the UK. Your body metabolises the alcohol more quickly that it can build up in your bloodstream your blood alcohol level does not rise.

A piece of bread and a ripe banana contain more alcohol than a bottle or can of Collider.

Because of this, you will also not get a hangover the next day.

Yes. Your liver metabolizes the alcohol present in the beer before it can move into the bloodstream, therefore your alcohol blood level does not rise.

The adaptogens themselves are not sedatives and therefore do not inhibit your ability to process information or affect your reaction times. If anything, the studies show that they promote increased reaction times and increased ability to concentrate on tasks. There is currently no legislation prohibiting driving when consuming any of our adaptogens.

The alcohol levels are low enough that it should be safe to drink when pregnant.

There is also no evidence to suggest that the Adaptogens contained within our products have any negative impact on those who are pregnant.

Having said this, always consult your GP or a medical professional for advice.

We do not pay alcohol duty on the beer we produce. However, we incur other significant costs that are greater than this saving:


1. Small batch- we still produce in smaller craft batches, which does cost more. 

2. Non-alcoholic- alcohol free beer is actually more expensive to produce that alcoholic as there are extra processes including in the brew.

3. Adaptogens- lion's mane, l-theanine and ashwagandha are not the cheapest ingredients so this is the cost that other non-alcoholic beers will not have to contend with and is something that we have to pass on.

We do think that Collider does justify its price, however, both in terms of quality of beer and the added benefit that the adaptogens bring to your mood.

Lifestyle, Nutritional + BELIEfs 03

There are between 45 and 50 Kcal in a bottle or can of collider, depending on the type of beer.

A large proportion of the calories in an alcoholic beer is the alcohol itself, which means Collider contains about a third of the calories of a regular beer.

Yes. There are no animal products used in the production of Collider.

Yes. Collider MK2 is gluten free.

Collider MK1 is untested for Gluten but would be very low levels.

Religious beliefs and practices vary and there is not a clear answer to this question. On the one hand, Collider does not intoxicate you. On the other, it does contain trace amounts of alcohol (but so do items like bananas and bread, which are considered halal). Our process is very similar to Kombucha, which is widely considered halal, as the alcohol is a by-product of the natural fermentation process and that fermentation process is never designed to create enough alcohol to intoxicate.

With regards to the adaptogens, these do not have an intoxicating effect (although the definition of intoxication is broad) and can be considered more of a health supplement. CBD, for instance, is considered halal. We would recommend anyone considering trying Collider to do their own research on this subject however.
