Emree Woods could have never anticipated that her first pregnancy in 2017 would inspire the non-alcoholic beer brand, Rightside Brewing. While not being able to drink during her pregnancy, she realized there were no authentic tasting non-alcoholic beer brands, only the big brands that had been around for seemingly forever. She saw an opportunity in the non-alcoholic brewing space for a great tasting craft option. Health and wellness were always a priority before and after her pregnancy, and drinking always seemed to contradict this lifestyle. Her entrepreneurial spirit was enveloped with the idea of a balanced, brighter life with no social sacrifices or stigmas around not drinking.
Channeling passion, creativity and patience, she created her first non-alcoholic brew prototypes in her kitchen with a homebrewing kit. She quickly learned that she'd need more brewing expertise under her belt, which led to a partnership with Big Kettle Brewers in 2020. Both parties were all-in on the mission to develop authentic non-alcoholic beverages that would cultivate a community of wellness-focused customers.
Every Rightside beverage is brewed with balance to ensure that flavor is always a priority – offering an authentic drinking experience for every phase of life. They launched their first two beers in 2021 - a crisp Citrus Wheat and tropical American IPA - to inspire people to be on the right side of their beverage choice.
