Non-Alcoholic beers are nothing, but, lagers or ales that have less or no alcohol content. Generally, lowest calorie beer is also low in ABV (Alcohol By Volume). These are usually meant for youngsters below 21 years of age. The ABV above 4.20% categorizes the beer brew as regular and legal for adults only. Now, here are some interesting facts.
|➡ The actual ‘invention and inventor’ of non-alcoholic beer is not known. But, it is believed that it was developed around 1919 when the limit of alcoholic beverages was specified to less than 0.5% in the USA. At that time, beer was made all around the world with less alcohol content. Although later the prohibition was canceled, these drinks were to stay!
➡ The taste of non-alcoholic beer is very similar to alcoholic beer. This is because the taste of beer is obtained from other contents, and not from alcohol.
➡ Recovering alcoholics should not switch to non-alcoholic beer as it can lead to relapse. Switching to these substitutes does not help in getting over alcoholism.
➡ Did you know that beer is one of the most popular and widely consumed alcoholic drink? Don’t believe it? Well, the Beer festivals or Beer exhibitions (the most popular being the Oktoberfest in Germany) celebrated all over the world prove it.
As a word of caution, note that although non-alcoholic, this type of beer contains traces of alcohol that can be addictive and harmful if consumed in excess. Therefore, consider having it in moderation.
On concluding note, here is a popular quote about beer:
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!”
– Benjamin Franklin
So, what are you waiting for! Grab your bottle and cheers with life!
