    Best tasting NA beer?

    Just wanted to gather some opinions on the best tasting non-alcoholic beer, as my wife is looking to buy some for her dad for part of his Christmas present, and she's not sure what he would like. Thanks

    I like A&W, Mug isn't bad, and you can't go wrong with Dad's.

    My vote goes to A&W. Although these 3 are the only NA beers I have ever tasted.

    Re: Best tasting NA beer?

    Depends what kind of beer he drinks. If he likes the run-of-the-mill American style lagers, I think the Busch NA is the best. If he prefers something a little nicer, I'd just avoid it altogether. I found most of the "premium" NA beers to be pretty bad.

    Some folks like the taste of beer without the alcohol content of traditional beer. Diabetics for one arent supposed to have alcohol. Well some can, but are suggested against.

    A good friend of mine's dad was told by his doctor that he had to pretty much avoid alcohol due to a heart problem. Well, he loved going out for beer with the boys, and wasn't going to give that up. With NA beer he was able to at least feel like he was participating. Maybe it's a stupid little thing, but it helped him retain an activity that he got a lot of enjoyment from.

    If I was ever forced to give up alcohol for health reasons, I wouldn't bat an eye at drinking NA beer.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    This diabetic LOVES his alcohol! But complications later in life do scare me enough to be smart about it.

    I've been diabetic since I was in high school (25 years), I've never been told not to drink alcohol. The only thing any doctor has told me is that anything in moderation is ok.

    Now as far as the NA beers go, I haven't had one since the last time my wife was pregnant and it seems as the O'Douls amber and Old Milwaukee NA weren't all that bad.
