To celebrate Dry January, our Prism service hosted an LGBT+ Dry Bar.

Launched in November last year, Queers Without Beers is Bristol's new alcohol-free LGBTQI+ social night and mindful drinking movement which have been entertaining people across London and Manchester for the past few years. The pop-up dry-bar was launched in Bristol in partnership between Club Soda and BDP's LGBT+ support service Prism.

Queers Without Beers is a night that doesn’t revolve around booze, attracting a range of people; those that have never drunk, didn't want alcohol that night, are looking to change their drinking habits, or have actively quit drinking. The social night stocks a range of exciting and quality alcohol-free and ultra-low alcohol drinks (maximum 0.05% ABV).

It is a great night out where everyone is welcome, whether you are just having a night off the booze or are alcohol-free. The bar will stock some of the best alcohol-free drinks on the market, from beers through to wines and kombucha. It is a great night where no one has to feel pressured to drink

We'd like say to thank you to our hosts Adelina Yard for having us again and also to Real Kombucha for joining us and offering free tastings of their vegan-friendly gluten-free alcohol-free drinks.

Queers Without Beers plans to return on Monday in late February. To stay tuned and find out more about Queers Without Beers, join the community on the Meetup group.
