Non-Alcoholic Beer update

Recommended Posts

The latest post I could find on this topic was from 2016 - so just wondering if anyone has had recent experience on the brand(s) available.  I was hoping for something other than O'Doul's.  Becks makes a great one - but hard to find.

 

I'm about to do my first cruise where I don't buy a drinks package and try to stick to a weight management program I've been doing rather successfully and alcohol and weight loss don't mix for me.  🙂  Club soda with lime gets very boring. 🙂

Actually, if you don’t mind questionable additives, the flavored waters on board aren’t bad.

No, they're not.  I actually use the flavorings now to get through the half gallon of water I'm drinking every day.... but I do like the taste of alcohol and the habit of lifting the drink to your face seems hard to break 🙂  The NA beer is actually quite satisfying (and low calorie!).. and I have found a distilled non-alcoholic spirit made in the UK that makes a great mock gin and tonic - but it's so hard to find on land, I know there's no way that would be on board 🙂

Re-engineered water bottles?  😉

Sometimes I get crazy and switch to club soda and lemon. 🍋

I do club soda with lime. Alcohol is bad for my waistline and makes me grouchy if I drink too often. The fringe benefit of having that as your preffered drink is that bartenders will often not charge you for it. I was not charged for it about half of the time when I ordered it on Grandeur.

On my 2 recent cruises this year (the last was 2 weeks ago) they were serving Heineken 0% in the Diamond Lounge, and I’m assuming they will have this throughout the ship. 

 

They previously has O’Douls and Becks zero but I haven’t came across them - maybe I wasn’t trying hard enough!
