Drinking beer is one of the world’s most popular pastimes. Many people go to bars to have a few beers and socialize with others and some enjoy a beer with dinner or when visiting with friends. However, what should you do if you want to socialize with others that drink beer but you don’t want to drink alcohol? Consider drinking alcohol-free beer.
This is the perfect alternative to drinking regular beer. It is safe for anyone and recommended for designated drivers. Sometimes you may need to take medication that interacts with alcohol but you still want to go out with your friends and have a good time. You can drink the alcohol-free beer during this time without having to worry about any side-effects.
What is Alcohol-Free Beer?
Alcohol-free beer is just what it sounds like: a beer-flavored beverage that is essentially free of alcohol. It is a great substitute for beer that allows you to be a part of the group without suffering from the effects of alcohol. It is just as rich in vitamins and minerals as original beer and, as an added bonus, it is fat-free. Keep in mind that even though the name says that it is alcohol-free, it stills contains a very small amount of alcohol (.05 percent).
You might wonder why it is considered an alcohol-free beer when it actually contains a little alcohol. The reason is because 0.05 percent is no more than what you will find in many juices and it is definitely not enough to get anyone drunk.
Is Alcohol-Free Beer Classified as Real Beer?
One of the first questions that come to mind when alcohol-free beer is mentioned is whether or not it can be classified as “real beer.” The answer is yes—it is real beer. Most alcohol-free beer is produced with the same method as the traditional beer. They use the barley malt, hops, water, and yeast to brew it. The only difference is that the alcohol is removed from the mixture once it has been fully brewed.
Due to the fact that alcohol-free beer is brewed the same way as original beer, it also has the same vitamins and minerals that are good for you. It has basically the same taste without the same alcoholic effects. Plus, it gives you a great opportunity to socialize with others in the same environment without having to worry about a hangover or any other side-effects. Alcohol-free is continuing to grow in popularity all the time.
