Non-Alcoholic Beer on Horizon

Recommended Posts

My menu from a little over a year ago on the Magic says they have Buckler.

Shaking head.......it looks like beer, pours like beer, but has all of the alcohol removed.  And ginger beer is not beer either, it's a cousin of ginger ale that is used to make Dark n Stormy's (Bermuda's official drink) when mixed with Gosling's rum.  Also used for Moscow mule's with vodka.

So then it is considered alcoholic beer then? What is with marketing?

NA beer has approximately 0.5% alcohol remaining.  It is considered at less than that point to be a "malt beverage;" however, the Buckler sold on Carnival ships is 0.5% alcohol and subject to legal drinking age restrictions.

So it is still technically alcoholic, but just not considered alcoholic.

You would have to drink a heck of a lot to even get a tiny buzz.

some people just like the taste of beer but cannot have alcohol.

Drinking a NA beer and eating a peach will produce about the same negligible amount of alcohol in one's stomach.  For some in recovery, it may be dangerous, depending on the motivation for drinking the substitute brew.

 

Others will not be bothered in the least.

 

I have heard that Carnival switched to Heiniken's NA from Bucklers.
