Why does non-alcoholic beer exist?
And why do the only brands that offer a non-alcoholic version happen to be the worst of the worst tasting beers?

There may be a documentary on this. HFC on radar.

I didn't drink alcohol for about 22 years, partly for health, partly to set an example for our teenagers. An occasional O'Doul's was a nice break from soft drinks and tea. I'm more into craft beers now, but if I'm a DD, O'Douls goes better with spicy food than tea or soft drinks.

It's for people who can't drink alcohol but want too feel like they still can....its only somewhat good if you get it ice ice cold....

Some of the European NA's are not bad tasting and for someone who likes the taste of beer without the alcohol, for whatever reason, it is a pretty decent substitute.

The only issue I have is the price of that stuff, especially the imports as they cost as much as a real beer, and that sucks.

I’ve lived 38 years on this planet and not once tasted a NA beer. Don’t plan on starting any time soon

The Beck’s and St Pauli’s are better than Odoul’s. The only reason I know is because my wife sometimes wanted a beer when she was pregnant.

St. Pauli and Becks put out non-alcohol beer which aren't too bad.

Non-alcoholic beer makes more sense to me than diet (light) beer. If your counting your calories, beer should not be your beverage of choice. With non-alcoholic beer, those recovering can still enjoy a beer, or as stated above, perhaps someone is a DD and making an intelligent choice.

I think most people that drink light beer aren’t drinking it because they are worried about calories. A lot of people don’t even know what “light” beer is for. They drink it because that’s what their daddy drank. And it is the closest tasting beer to water so it’s easy to drink so they can drink a lot of them and feel cool.

Or because light beer is easy to drink. I enjoy craft beers but if I’m at the golf course or basically anywhere hot I don’t really want a thick stout or dipa glass of orange juice.

My FIL does not drink alcohol but loves the taste of beer so he drinks non-alcoholic beer (to the extent it even tastes like beer).

There are a lot more options these days for non-alcoholic beer that aren't too bad. Some people like the taste of beer and don't want to drink alcohol.

Both times my wife was pregnant she drank them. Most are bad, but I found that Beck's was tolerable. Then someone brought her some "kinder beer" from Germany that was at least ok. Better than anything we have here.

Beck's is pretty good for an NA. but if you don't care for NA, don't drink it, no one is forcing you.
