Alcohol Free Beer
My struggles with weight are to some degree tied to my lack of judgment after a beer or two, so I decided to park the alcohol consumption for a few months.
(Ok "park" is a strong term ... "moderate"? I still allow myself 2 drinks a week.)
I still really like the taste of beer, though, so I decided to try to find a decent alcohol-free beer.
Decent Beer That's Alcohol Free - Mission Impossible?
I thought so at first, but that's mostly because the grocery store offerings are relatively terrible.
Then I found this website: PremiumNearBeer.com
I bought one of their mixed cases ("Ultimate Beer Mixed Case") just to try and see what I liked. $55 + shipping for 24 near bears seemed steep, but I thought it would be worth the plunge to check it out.
It's very hit and miss. Some of them just don't taste that good. I didn't like the Erdinger for example - which I expected to really enjoy since I love regular Erdinger. But it had a weird aftertaste.
On the other hand two really stuck out (so far):
1. Clauthaler Amber
This tastes so good, the most like a "real" complex beer of the ones I've had so far. To me it was indifferentiable from real beer, just solidly delicious.
2. Weihenstephaner Non-Alcoholic Wheat
This one tastes great, much like a real wheat bear would taste. 500mL is a little much for near beer in my opinion... I really just need a taste most of the time. But really delicious.
3. Beck's (Grocery Store)
I've managed to find the Non-alcohol Becks in my local stores, it's relatively cheap and pretty good. My go-to everyday kind of non-alochol beer.
