Everything You Need to Know About Nonalcoholic Beer


You might have noticed more people taking a pass on alcohol as they discover the physical and mental benefits of an alcohol-free lifestyle.

With this trend has come a new generation of nonalcoholic beers. Modeled after flavorful craft beers, these new brews taste better than earlier nonalcoholic beers. Many of the newer buzz-free brews are made with health and wellness in mind. Some companies, such as WellBeing Brewing Company and Athletic Brewing Company, evoke a healthy lifestyle with their brand names.

“Nonalcoholic beers are a great way for individuals to reduce their intake of alcohol while still being able to enjoy the taste and experience of a beer. By removing the alcohol, you’re taking out a compound that is toxic and that increases the risk of chronic disease,” says Kerry Benson, MS, RD, cofounder of the Sober Dietitians and coauthor of Mocktail Party: 75 Plant-Based Non-Alcoholic Recipes for Every Occasion.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), alcohol is “a toxic and psychoactive substance” that contributes to 3 million deaths each year globally and is responsible for more than 5.1 percent of the global burden of disease.
