It’s all about perspective and seeking the light.
There are thousands, maybe millions of pilsners, but this pilsner-style light brew invites you to look again - to take in everything that can exist all at once in a single beverage (or moment).

Who Inspired This Beer?
The size of the universe is so big that it is hard to make sense of our significance within its immense space. The existence of the universe has been studied in cosmology by brilliant people, trying to gain an understanding of the universe via a broad discipline of scientific, religious, or philosophical aspects. And one such person, Carl Sagan, a famed scientist, helped bring an incredible perspective on our home planet and the lives we live within it.
Over 30 years ago, as part of NASA’s Voyager 1 mission’s imaging team, Carl convinced officials to take one last image of Earth before the spaceship left our solar system and that image became known as "the pale blue dot." This one-of-a-kind image showed the gravity of how undeniably small the Earth is compared to the entirety of the universe.
Sagan tried to make sense of this image and documented his thoughts in his 1994 book, "Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space." Here's what he wrote:
"From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
Go is a very welcome entrant to the NA beer market. Their products are consistently more "real beer-like" than other NA offerings and Suspended in a Sunbeam is a prime example. I've not come across another NA pilsner on the market, and anyone who wants to compete with this one better bring their "A" game. This crisp, refreshing pilsner is as close an approximation to a "real" pilsner as you're going to get.
After having consumed over 40 different near beers in this particular style (just since June 2020), this one ranks in the top 5, including imports. Wish it were readily available in southeastern PA!
Let me first preface by saying I was very hesitant in trying a NA craft beer. How can there be craft brews that taste as good as regular alcoholic beverages? Having said this, I have NO idea why I’ve waited THIS long to try Go Brewing. I was completely wrong in my thinking! I purchased 3 of their different craft beers, and every one is absolutely fantastic! If you had no idea what you were drinking, you would have NO clue it was a NA beer! Splendid flavors and completely refreshing. I was hooked with the first sip and I will GUARANTEE I will be trying each and every NA beer they produce. Cheers!
The Pilsner taste is so real in this beer, it’s excellent. It’s not a watered down light beer taste, but real beer. I was skeptical as I’ve tried a few NAs that didn’t do it for me. This and the Hazy IPA are keepers for sure. I wish I could get it locally, and not to order for delivery.
This has become my go-to beer!! Easy to drink, great flavor, just the right amount of everything!!!
