Welcome to Free Beer, a project of mine to attempt to highlight and review the many alcohol free beers pouring onto the UK and worldwide market. No longer the last resort of the designated driver or teetotaler, the new generation of non-alcoholic beers are actually drinks you'd want to drink in their own right.
AF (alcohol free) beer has seen something of a renaissance in recent years, with younger drinkers abstaining from alcoholic beverages or choosing not to drink as much as their parents did. The craft ale movement has also embraced it, with luminaries such as BrewDog producing great non-alcoholic alternatives, and the big breweries also upping their game with some great tasting versions of favourite brews, sans alcohol.
From light lagers all the way to heavy stouts, I'll be covering the entire beer spectrum with as many offerings I can find, from the big brewing conglomerates to the local craft brewers, all with an ABV of 0.5% or less.
