9 Non-Alcoholic Beer Brands to Try for Dry January

December is a month of celebrating. There are holiday parties and gatherings every weekend filled with delicious appetizers and more booze than you've seen all year. The year ends with an alcohol-filled evening, starting the beginning of the year with a Time's Square NYE Ball-size headache. After a month of merriment, most partake in 'Dry January' to give their livers a well-needed rest. So what do you drink instead? You can stick with water and seltzer, but if you are really craving the taste of regular beer, these non-alcoholic beer brands have you covered.

What is Non-Alcoholic Beer?

Unlike regular beer which can range anywhere from 3% and 13% ABV, non-alcoholic beer contains 0.5% alcohol by volume. It retrospect, canned kombucha usually contains the same amount of alcohol due to the fermentation process. Alcohol-free beer contains no alcohol.

One alcohol-free option is popular beer brand, Heineken. This year, Heineken has introduced The January Dry Pack, a 31-pack of non-alcoholic brew that acts like an Advent calendar. Packed with Heineken 0.0% ABV, the alcohol-free pack is a fun way to drink your favorite lager without the side-effects of alcohol.


And get this, the pack is completely free! There is a limited number of free packs, however, you can still buy the Heineken 0.0% ABV in stores or online.

Along with Heineken, there are a number of beer brands that sell alcohol-free beer. Which is the best non-alcoholic beer? That's for you to decide.
