Functional mushroom beer brand Fungtn has unveiled a 0.5% ABV dark lager containing 500mg of shiitake extract with adaptogenic compounds.
The vegan non-alcoholic brew combines organic shiitake mushrooms with malt, barley and hops to offer “a balanced blend of richer stout-like flavours, with a lightness on the tongue”.
Like the rest of the brand’s range, Fungtn’s “hangover-free” Shiitake Dark Lager aims to enable consumers to reconcile social drinking with health and wellness goals.
In addition to providing a rich umami flavour, Fungtn says that shiitake mushrooms are associated with a host of health benefits, including helping to lower blood pressure and reducing the absorption of cholesterol.
Shiitake Dark Lager is available from the brand’s website with an RRP of £33.60 for a pack of 12 cans.
