We surveyed a bunch of people and we came up with a list of reasons why they drink non alcoholic beer. We got so many cool answers and we wanted to share them with you. Check out the list and think about your reasons.
1. I wanted to quit drinking and I love and taste of beer.
2. I like beer but ethanol is a carcinogenic like tobacco.
3. I don't have to worry about what I need to do after I drink NA beer. I can have some at lunch and I can still drive and function for the rest of the day.
4. Much lower calories. I can have a few NA beers every night and it doesn't stick around my waist.
5. I can drive. When I am at a social event I can drink as few or as many non alcoholic beers as I choose...and drive home. (I might have to stop to pee).
6. Alcohol messes up my sleep.

14. I'm an alcoholic and really like beer.
15. I needed to take a break from booze. It is so close to the real thing...minus the booze.
16. It is fun to try out new craft non alcoholic beers. It is exciting when you find a new one

18. Less alcohol and less calories...better for you especially over 40.

Everyone has their reason and we wanted to list them for you. Cheers!!!!
There are some really great Canadian beers and more and more are available which is great, but it is still really difficult to order a non-alcoholic beer in a restaurant. If they offer one, it is usually an important.
