Non Alcoholic beer on the Allure?

Recommended Posts

Hello! Does anyone know if they serve Non Alcoholic beer on the Allure? thank you!

Yes, there are a couple of choices, but I don't have the list with me right now.

 

EDIT: I believe the choices are O'Douls and Buckler.

O'Doul's and a second non-alcoholic beer (Buckler maybe) are offered.
Yes, Buckler is on the Pub menu:

Thanks so much! Of course, the one IPA isn't covered, but I'm sure there's something on that list my husband will enjoy. (He's really into home brewing and has turned into a bit of a beer snob!)

Sidebar question: Why do people drink NA beer? I'm an avid beer drinker and don't understand it.

 

 

I'm going off several assumptions here AND I FULLY KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS...

 

1. At least in FL and OH where I've lived, a minor can't buy NA beer because it still have SOME alcohol in it. Thus, it is probably the same on a cruise ship.

 

2. The NA beers I've tasted (I think 3???) have all tasted horrible and so far from beer that it was crazy.

 

3. If you were in AA, I think that even NA beer would frowned on, right??? Because the thought is that one beer won't get your drunk... it will just put your back on the path to drinking to excess. An NA beer won't get you drunk, but it certainly puts you right back on the path... in a bar, with your buddies, sipping that bubbly brown stuff.

 

 

 

Thus, I've never understood NA beer. Can you enlighten me?

My husband goes to AA, but on cruises he hangs out in the casino a lot!. He drinks O'Doul's. Not sure what AA thinks about this, but it works for for him, and that is all that matters. :)

There are many people who can't drink alcohol for health/medication reasons who still enjoy the taste of a cold beer.

Which is kind of my point... it still contains alcohol. A lot less, but still contains alcohol.

 

If someone is allergic to peanuts, that's why they put the "This product was made in a plant that uses peanuts in other products" note on things.

 

There are also still plenty of calories in NA beer. Again, not as many as some regular beers, but plenty and more than some light beers.

La Fin Du Monde and Chimay well done RCI. Well done. And Coors Light is only considered beer if it is the only beer in your area code.

Not sure why you care so much? If you do not like NA beer, don't have it. I have been sober for 25 years and enjoy a NA beer, or two, every once in a while and guess what, it hasn't led me to getting drunk yet! I did stay clear of it until about 5 years ago, but now I do enjoy the taste of a beer now and again.

We have just come of the Adventure and O'doulls and bucklers were available as part of the Royal Refresh Package. This was $20 per day and these NA beers came in at $4.95 so it wasn't hard to break even.

If you can't drink beer....drink water. I can't abide the taste of beer simply for the taste...it's the buzz I want! Your mileage may vary. JMO.

Not sure why you think I would care, it's a fact. Just because something is true doesn't mean someone is interested in it.

 

The comment was made that people have medical reasons for not consuming alcohol. My comment was that NA beers do contain alcohol. Fact, just not a lot.

 

I don't care, but that bears no reflection on the accuracy of the statement.

My husband is a transplant recipient and as such cannot drink much...but enjoys an O'Douls or Coors also has one that is non-beer that he says tastes even better than O'Douls. On our last cruise the bartender (Radu) in the Champagne Bar made him awesome Virgin Bloody Mary's.....its a trade off, but one that he can live with!

I hate to ask this but what does the *asterisk on the drink menus mean. Are they not included on the beverage packages?

That's what the asterisk has meant in the past.

From a confessed beer snob, I think you're making assumptions that people don't drink NA beer for the taste and that NA beer puts one on the path back to alcoholism unless of course you have some statistical data to back that up.

I'm guessing the answer is no but I'm sure someone will try. ;)
