Anyone here know any good non-alcoholic beer? My mouth loves beer but my stomach hates the alcohol.

Tried a red racer pilsner today. It was refreshing but didn't knock my socks off.

Try the Sober Carpenter ones.  I like them.

Picked up an assortment today - thanks for the tip.

Partake seems to be well reviewed as well. Will get some of those as well I think.

I think this post violates community standards.

Partake pale ale is ok.  I don’t mind that Red Racer Pils when it’s smoking hot, or after a ride.

Nice thing with the Partakes is the low calorie count.  Haven’t found an IPA that really does it.  

I think most of them are a little disappointing if compared with the real thing, but I don’t think that’s the right comparison necessarily.

Just had a AlkoholFrei German brand pils in a white tallcan from SaveOn. Quite malty, but it sure went down quick, tasted like another. 

The Partake IPAs are pretty acceptable too if you have to drive home.

Sober white was OK

IPA was good.

Both refreshing.

The Red Racer IPA is about the best I've had of these so far. Anyone have any new recommendations for the list? 

The PC Radler is pretty good, maybe a touch sweet...but still refreshing.

I tried two different ones from Sober Carpenter (one of them was their White, don't remember the other one). They were OKish but I wouldn't buy again. I thought they tasted a bit metallic (?) if that makes sense. I'm not very good at describing flavours.

IGA sells Clausthaler Original which I've bought a few times now and is like a lager. I also liked Erdinger Alkoholfrei which I had at a restaurant and is like a wheat beer. I think the Germans have this thing figured out better than the rest of the world.

Will try the Red Racer sometime.

Red Racer IPA for the win if you want to pay craft beer prices for nearbeer. 

PC Red is cheap like Borst but actually one of my favourites outside the  craft near beer price.

Oh and I tried a Phillips Iota that was pretty decent, I think it was the Hazy IPA.

This is a great thread.  I don't drink them but my father-in-law just started drinking O'Doul's.  It's hard to watch.  I will grab some of these for his next visit.

I can't drink recently due to shitty medicine i need to take, and i dont drink much pop, so near beer it is. i dont drink a lot of it, just for a post ride beer / BBQ / chill with firends so the preimum price doesn't bother me so much. 

i do like sours, and there is a brand called BSA, they do a tropical and raspberry sour that are good for summer time. i haven't tried their IPA yet.

the red racer IPA is ok. i find the partake to be a bit meh. i need to try the Philips and see how it is.

there is a lemon radler in the grocery store that is tasty as well as it's half lemonade! maybe Grolsch?

I never would have thought that syncro joined the micro brewery movement.
