Top non-alcoholic beer optionsLaura
Gone are the days when an alcohol-free beer meant sipping a tasteless and watery drink, which was often listed last on the drinks menu or sat gathering dust on the bottom shelf behind the bar. The emergence of so many craft beermakers and a keener interest from non-drinkers has opened the doors on a relatively untapped market. With this in mind, here are a few of the non-alcoholic beers that are proving a popular alternative to real beer.
While we wait patiently for COVID-19 to burn itself out, why not indulge with a six pack of Helles Enough Said – a light-bodied offering from Two Roots Brewing Co. that is the perfect accompaniment to salty snacks. If you prefer something a bit more gutsy to pour into your engraved beer tankard, then Upside Down Golden Ale from Athletic Brewing Co. will give you a Belgian beer taste with none of the alcohol. Nah from Bauhaus Brew Labs delivers a dark, heavy-bodied brew that lets the toasted malt flavours shine through.
For those that prefer a fruity beer, the Creatives IPA from Surreal Brewing and Raspberry Gose from Bravus Brewing have all the fruit flavours you could want in alcohol-free form.
The popularity of Dry January as a quick detox from seasonal excess has also helped the growing alcohol-free drinks market. Dry January or not, the simple pleasure of cracking open a can of beer and pouring it into your favourite engraved drinkware can still be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
