Anyone who does not drink alcohol (or is looking to stop) understands the tiresome, frustrating feeling: showing up to a social gathering to find an abundance of beer, wine, and possibly even an array of spirits-- but essentially nothing else.
Of course, you would have been willing to bring your own, but even at your local supermarket or liquor store, it can be hard to find non-alcoholic beers or wines.
For too many people, the perceived lack of availability of no or low alcohol beer is a barrier to enjoying a refreshing drink without the effects and risks of alcohol. The reality is, however, there are plenty of places, online and in-person, where you can buy non-alcoholic beer-- and we can help you find them.
Who Should Buy Non-Alcoholic Beer?
When it comes to this question, there’s no wrong answer. There are many different reasons why someone may opt for low alcohol beer, from medical reasons to religious beliefs to just wanting to avoid the stress of a hangover.
For some, personal or medical circumstances have led them to a lifestyle that involves 0 alcohol. Beer in particular has a lot of empty calories, leading some to choose non-alcoholic beer as a healthier alternative. In some cases, our customers have never drank alcohol, and others have chosen to cut it out of their diet.
Of course, alcohol comes with a litany of health risks-- especially when it comes to heavy drinking. While some people may turn to non-alcoholic beer because they recognize they have a bad relationship with alcohol, others are simply aware of the health detriments, and want to live as healthy a lifestyle as possible.
That said, not everyone who enjoys low alcohol beer is completely sworn off alcohol. After all, the best low alcohol beers taste so good, even fans of traditional beer prefer their non-alcoholic counterpoints every once in a while.
Even if you do drink, if you are planning a social function, it is a good idea to buy non-alcoholic beer if any traditional drinks are being served. Not only will this be inclusive to everybody on your guest list, but it will ensure that your friends who do not drink alcohol do not feel singled out or the centre of attention for not having a beer in their hands.
Plus, every responsible social outing should include a designated driver-- and by offering low alcohol beer, you can make sure no DD is missing out on the fun.
Should I Look For 0 Alcohol Beer?
Part of the reason so many people struggle to find a brand of non alcoholic beer that works for them is the idea that if it’s not 0 alcohol beer, it does not “count” as non-alcoholic. There are actually plenty of low alcohol beer options under 0.05% alcohol that are, given the incredibly low percentage considered to be non-alcoholic beer.
This is all to say that 0 alcohol beer is not necessarily the right guiding force for anyone looking to buy non-alcoholic beer-- instead, you should keep your eyes peeled for the 0.05% label.
