Zero alcohol beer?
May 15th, 2017 at 7:44am
 
I was going to say good luck with that one till I read further.
Apparently it's already 10% or so of the global market.
Heineken have launched their 0.0 Beer globally. Can't imagine it would have gone down well with the multi-schooner lunchtime wharfies in the old days.

Bundaberg Breweries does a good non-alcoholic ginger beer. It is usually called soft drink.

Back during the America's Cup days - 1986/7 - we (Perth) used to export ship loads of non-alcoholic beer to Saudi Arabia (and Yemen, Singapore, and Malaysia).

Yeah, that's right - you could too.

Not sure why anyone would bother, though: it tasted like diluted urine.

It would suit the 48% of respondents to a Queenslund survey, who said they didn't drink alcohol to get drunk........ thus clearly showing Queenslund to be miles ahead of the rest of the country in its surveys......

It's called Sex on the Beach beer.

Non alcoholic beer is soft drink

For some reason, full strength or lite beer seem to make me feel a lot better than spirits. Must be the sugar. Just finishing up my slab of beer I bought last Wednesday.
