I find alcohol free beer much like vegetarians who eat burgers that look like meat...
The difference is that you can drive a car after eating burgers but not after drinking beer

I'd rather be seen in public eating a veggie burger than drinking an alcohol free beer

Re: Non Alcoholic Beer - poor selection

Try your local brewery.

I particularly enjoy Baar Breueri's Baarer 0% beer....and they deliver.

A real man is not a man who worries about what the public thinks, a real man is a man who doesn't give a f-ck.

For me the satisfaction of a cold, crisp beer on a hot Saturday afternoon is something i just can't live without, nor the taste of beer with a nice lunch. However if I drink a "real" beer i feel the effects of alcohol with makes me 1. want to drink more or 2. tired and grumpy if i don't drink more.

A good non alcohol beer is a perfect solution to this problem.

Enjoying a Karlskrone now. Perhaps a tad sweet for my taste, but for 0.49 CHF its a bargain and will do just fine with week night dinners!

Re: Non Alcoholic Beer - poor selection

Clausthaler was good when it first started, and you have to give them the credit and kudos for being among the first to try to market an alcohol-free beer on a large scale.

But since then the beer market as a whole and also the alcohol-free options specifically have opened so far that Clausthaler isn't really up there any more as a serious option IMHO.

Do you mean that they have an insignificant share of the beer market as a whole or that their quality has gone down. They are still the market leaders in non alc beer in this part of the world.
