Rick’s Near Beer Launches Rick’s Hazy, a Low-Strength Hazy IPA

Rick’s Hazy is low-strength to keep the good times rolling through Dry January

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 4, 2022 — Rick’s Near Beer launches Rick’s Hazy today, the second in its lineup of non-alcoholic craft beers. Available to ship nationwide in time for Dry January, Rick’s Hazy is refreshingly hoppy and juicy and contains less than 0.5% ABV.

Rick’s Hazy, full of citrus and tropical fruit flavor and aroma, is brewed with premium malted barley, flaked wheat, loads of Pacific Northwest hops, and Rocky Mountain water.

Founded by Certified Cicerone® Josh Hare, the entrepreneur behind Texas-based beverage brands Hops & Grain Brewing and Pint & Plow Brewing, Rick’s Near Beer launched in December 2022 with its initial low strength offering, Rick’s Original.

“We’re brewing a line up of beers that can be enjoyed morning, noon, and night,” says Hare. “Rick’s Hazy is for every beer lover, whether you’re celebrating the New Year with a resolution to cut back on your alcohol intake, or you’re looking for a delicious beer to enjoy during happy hour before a commute home after work.”

Order six-packs of Rick’s Hazy ($12) and Rick’s Original ($10) online at and keep an eye out for Rick’s Near Beer in the beer aisle of retail stores throughout Texas in early 2023.
