Re: Does anybody want some Alcohol free beer for free?

OP - buy some Special Brew equivalent, and mix the two half and half, to end up with a normal strength beer.

Re: Does anybody want some Alcohol free beer for free?

Was going to tell you to offer it up on the "Family Matters/Health" Forum. The only time I ever partook of alcohol-free beer was during my pregnancy. Never again (both for drinking alcohol-free beer and for being pregnant ).

Sounds like Confloozled has a good plan for your beer. Santé!

Feldschlossen
Oh that's easy then. Tip it down the sink. The same applies to alcoholic Feldschlossen as well. Dreadful stuff - like alcholic Kaliber.

Yes we have discovered Feldschlossen is not the nicest... but when we first moved here we had no idea. Live and learn

I accidentally ordered 2 boxes of alcohol free beer and I have no idea what to do with it!!
If anybody wants this please feel free to come and pick it up (seefeld area) otherwise it's all going in the bin!
Not sure if this has already been said but i have only 7 minutes of luch left lol...

Why not give it to people you dont like when they call around... you know the ones that bring smoke 2 euro bottle of wine then want to drink you r 70euro bottle of whiskey type people

Re: Does anybody want some Alcohol free beer for free?

Alcohol free beer is like giving your sister oral, the taste is there but it just isn't quite right.

Feldshizen is like Bud, both are water until you get them cold enough. Then they are water with trace amounts of alcohol in them.

Perhaps you can use it to "spoil perfectly decent food"?

Re: Does anybody want some Alcohol free beer for free?

isn't this kinda like homeopathic alcohol. you should be careful with that stuff - in theory it should make you much more drunk than normal alcohol...

I'll take it all from you. But I will tell you what I will do with it. I'll make beer cheese soup, bread, sauce for rabbit and game, and also it is great to braise meat in. It's like cooking with a nutty wine. You of course can even use it to make batter for deep frying fish or chicken. Ice cream maker on hand?

I'm just saying that just cause you can't get buzzed on it, you can still do something with it. And if you still want to toss it, send me a pm, and I will get it in the next day or so...of which I will trade you a few real beers for it.
Hello - I cant PM you anymore because im only allowed 4 PMs in one day (newb).
If you could PM me your email address I will send you address. Thank you!

Re: Does anybody want some Alcohol free beer for free?

What's the point?

Beer at the best of times tastes yukky, it is made to cause effect, without the effect even free it is a waste of time and belly space!

Well honestly, why drink a cold beer after work, on a hot day? Just for the alcohol? I don't drink it, but have from time to time. This post is a waste of time and mind space(mine, not yours).

Re: Does anybody want some Alcohol free beer for free?

Why did you groan me? I just said my post was a waste of time, basically saying I had nothing to contribute useful, and you thought your's was actually worse? If you think your's is more useless then mine, just say you agree.

I appreciate that you can take back, as well as give. Seriously wasn't an attack on you.

Certainly saltier and warmer then normal beer should taste. Unless of course you are drinking in Belgium(and their beer).
