My mother's house had it and the inventory came my way. Unlike the NA wine which was bought for me since I could often not drink at her place, carrying weapons, this stuff was bought by me, by accident. She was making beer chicken one night and told me get some beer, cheap stuff, so I got the cheapest stuff on sale.

Of course, I never drank the beer nor wine at her place because while it may say NA, it still had just a smiggen in it, and legally, it wouldn't fly. I did eventually open the wine.....and it was terrible. Like super grape juice.

But the beer, though, wasn't that bad. It was more like super tasty soda water, but it was better than just having soda.

So anyone ever use this as a substitute for normal beer? Perhaps when you want to have a few when on a date and still want to play later on?

I've tried a bunch over the years. Most suck.

The best tasting I've found is Kaliber. I have yet to try St Pauli Girl NA though.

St Pauli Girl NA is pretty good.

Once I stopped into a biker bar and was drinking. I asked them if the Busch they had in the cooler was cheaper than the Bud heavy I was drinking, bartender said "yes, but it's non-alcoholic".

I had few different kinds in Iraq and St Pauli Girl was definitely the best. However, "the best" is set at a pretty low bar when it comes to NA beer.

It perhaps does but Texas CHL laws are very specific about drinking while carrying. Consuming anything that has a marking of alcohol on it while carrying is foolhardy, in my philosophy anyhow, at best.

Perhaps another way to look at it. Just as one would not drink or consume such if they were on antabuse, so they should not if they are carrying.

How much alcohol is in NA beer? How much can it have and still be NA?

Does cough syrup have more?
Link Posted: 8/18/2012 12:34:33 PM EDT
I have an uncle that I recall gave up the drinking but he'd have a couple N/A's for when being social.

I think I've tried O'Douls once and I remember it being horrible. I've never really had a reason to drink it, as I've never needed an alternative to regular beer. Maybe if I had a job where I was on call or something.

Very short.

Yep,
It gets centrifuged, filtered, aged, filtered again, bottled, then Pateurized, then packaged,
just like almost everything else we do (draft stuff, of course, is a little different).

0.50% or less. By law. Basically, you would have to drink a six pack to equal one beer.

Cough syrup generally has no alcohol since the anti-alcohol ninnies had it pulled. It was at one time a co-solvent but now they rely on micro-crystallization and suspension, making the cough syrup thicker. Another example, Delsym cough syrup (time release) uses a polystyrene resin bead system to deliver the active ingredient, requiring a very thick suspension to keep the polystyrene resin beads in suspension.

I'm not a spokesperson for gun owners. As far as safety goes, if you can't safely handle a firearm with a little bit of a buzz then you probably can't safely handle a firearm sober.

Safely operating a firearm isn't tantamount to having the key to a nuclear arsenal. Contrary to popular belief not everyone gets herp derp after a couple of drinks, and is certainly not going to forget firearm safety rules that have been ingrained into them. Only in this day in age would you accept the pacified, tit suckling version of a man as acceptable as he currently is.

If having a couple beers with the guys and shooting a gun makes me irresponsible in your eyes then sobeit.

Drinking a beer or two is not going to make too many people drunk. It seems the average American has no sense of proportion in this regard. Even one non-alcoholic beer seems to be considered by some to be the equivalent of being intoxicated when it comes to things like driving or shooting or handling firearms.

Actually, it isn't. It is against the law to carry while intoxicated. Intoxicated is not defined for the purposes of that statute.

I'd love to see a lawyer try to argue for a conviction of UCW because they were "intoxicated" despite showing zero signs of intoxication.

0.50% or less. By law. Basically, you would have to drink a six pack to equal one beer........


Wow....there are beers out there like that? Most of mine are at least 7%.

Anyhow, two things. Zero tolerance BS or not, that's the CHL law. No drinking. Secondly, a lot of my philosophy in this sphere centers around that in areas that I have been specially trained, I should expect them to judge me more sternly in court should I end up there. So I up my "conduct" standards on these matters. Usually, it is 12 hours bottle to throttle but I don't know what it would be for NA beer; I have just always treated it the same.

Actually, it isn't. It is against the law to carry while intoxicated. Intoxicated is not defined for the purposes of that statute.

I'd love to see a lawyer try to argue for a conviction of UCW because they were "intoxicated" despite showing zero signs of intoxication.


Gamble the law as one wishes, but for my purpose, I do not drink while carrying.

For if in anything else, might one win against criminal law, they are not as likely to win in the civil suit that will be out there.
