Most beer drinks have enjoyed a pint or two of a German beer. Whether it be a Weissbier, Kolsch, or Marzen (Oktoberfest!), German beers are ubiquitous throughout bars and liquor stores in the United States. In 2019, 11.2 million Germans consumed non alcoholic beer during the calendar year. We reviewed four German non alcoholic beers for their style, flavor, and production method.
Different non alcoholic beers are best for different occasions and different preferences. Rather than just rate each beer, I'll provide a perspective on each non alcoholic beer brand from three vantage points: Style - alcoholic beer this is most similar to, Production method - arrested fermentation, distillation or membrane separation, Occasion - i.e. refreshment, with food, exploration etc.
