Alcohol Free Beer - Big Selection

Recommended Posts

Generally speaking, Thailand is a pretty poor place for Alcohol Free Beer. 

 

I wasn't a fan of this stuff till a trip to the UK last year where I discovered Becks Blue and an assortment of other brews - ranging from pretty good to damn awful.

 

Out here, there's very little choice - Wish Beer do a delivery but half of the Alcohol Free beers are sold out (often because I have purchased them all).

 

For those in Bangkok, there's a really good place to go... Central Festival Eastville has a pretty big selection in the Central Foodhall - a few Weissens like Paulaner. Some German brews & overall a pretty big selection. I am currently supping on a 500ml Weihenstephan 0% only 80 calories a bottle too.

 

No Becks Blue out here and they aren't cheap but at least it seems to be catching on - would love to see it in the pubs & bars our here...

You do realize that a drink doesn't have to have a 'point' right?

If you're happy to pay lots of money for a fizzy drink that tastes a bit like something else but has none of the "good" effects then "upto you"   but I'd call it pointless... imagine coke without the caffeine ,sugar and C02..... pointless. 

I would rather just drink  water than non alcoholic beer or wine..no mater how may fish had f*** in it.

Yes - you drink exactly what you want and I'll drink what I want.

I'm glad we agree on that totally "up to you"

I won't get all bent out of shape about what you drink,

I'm not negative or bent out of shape (about non alcoholic beer) sorry if it appears to you I am...

I just don't see the point..same as I don't see the point in spending millions of baht on  Rolex  when a 1000 baht Casio can do the same job (it tells the time)

beer,wine and spirits are to get you a buzz or totally drunk... In my opinion of course,  others have different opinions and I fully support their right to voice that opinion even if it doesn't agree with mine

In Switzerland I found an alcohol free beer that I could enjoy, the only problem was that my waistline expanded. After two years it disappeared, so eventually I went back to "beer' beer, waistline remained.

Difficult working in construction. dealing with (mostly alcoholic) architects and labourers, without consuming alcohol, although the days when breweries sent their trucks directly to the building sites are gone. Quite a few were consuming 12 pints a day, starting at the railway or bus station at 6am.

That's like saying I found a woman that won't sleep with me, a house with no roof, or a car that never starts.

I saw 'Tiger Lemon' in a 7/11 in Kanch the other week- didn't try it but it was only 2.5% I think. i haven't looked for it in my local yet. under B40 a can IIRC but I didn't take a proper look.

Id like it if a Thai brewery would produce a beer with 2% alcohol. Would hopefully have a good taste but be cheaper than the imports.

Or a poster that posts without saying anything.

 

I love alcohol-free beer. I can list a number of reasons, but why argue with somebody's personal taste? Unless of course you have too much time on your hands and don't know what to do with it.

A bit of a rhetorical post that!
