Just in case anyone was interested.

Bavaria customer services sent a reply to the email I sent them asking if they could confirm there are NO traces of alcohol in their beer:

Hi Richard

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us.

Molson Coors Brewing Company are appointed as distributors for Bavaria N.V Netherlands products in the UK. As nominated distributors, Molson Coors Brewing Company are instructed to deal with enquiries within the UK on behalf of Bavaria N.V Netherlands.

We can confirm that Bavaria 0.0% lager is produced in a different way to other alcohol free beer. This is because unlike other ‘alcohol free’ beers, where the alcohol is filtered out of a malt beer at the last stage of the brewing process. Bavaria, does things differently. They altered the brewing process so that no alcohol is created at any stage. The result is a uniquely full-bodied flavour non-alcoholic beer.

We would however strongly recommend that you seek the medical advice from a qualified medical professional before consuming Bavaria 0.0% Lager.

Kind Regards

Consumer Services
Richard

Good of them to reply.
Personally I would rather have a coke or another soft drink, I expect the price of the beer is nearly the same as the real stuff ?

They're actually only 50p a bottle in the supermarket. God knows what a pub would charge though, haven't been in one for a while and bet it would be a mission to find one that serves it. Certainly not the best tasting beer in the world but at least it's reassuring to know it shouldn't be doing too much damage. :)

See there's an alcohol free distilled botanical 'spirit' called Seedlip, they're selling in Tescos, but at over £30 a go, seems a lot to fork out for a very nice bottle and some pretty branding. Sticking to the Bavaria 0.00% which might not be the tastiest tipple but at 50p a bottle and 100% alcohol free you can't complain too much. ;)

Alcohol free rum and whiskey. Can't even begin to imagine what that would be like. You're a braver man than me Paul. Make sure you've got a big packet of extra strong mints at hand. Would love to hear the results if it's deemed safe to go in ;)

If the rum is alcohol free, I definitely want to hear about it.

Although I don't know if I will be able to get it here. Never thought to look...

According to there web site it uses same ingrediants but is not allowed to ferment . Have sent 2 emails asking to confirm zero alcohol content was told in reply some of there drinks are 0.5% but rum and whiskey are Zero . The rum is slightly sweeter than REAL rum but great in Irish coffee . Have ordered a bottle of each . Less than £20 for both including p&p , If all else fails can use it to clear drains .

I made do over Christmas with Monin Gin coffee syrup (actually I think it's a cocktail syrup but it's by the coffee syrup people). It doesn't really have that alcoholic kick (it's non alcoholic) but Tesco do a tonic with lime I got to go with it. The syrup alone is beyond disgusting but mixed together with the tonic it makes a passable drink which is the nearest to a gin and tonic I'm going to get now!

I think I'll have a look, thank you Paul.

I hadn't really missed alcohol all year until Christmas and then I REALLY missed it. Lately I've been feeling slightly sorry for myself that I can't have it, so alternatives would be very welcome. It's weird as I was never a big drinker before - well, not since my university days (and those are best not spoken of :lol: )

WE all like a bit of gossip .My bottle of rum and whiskey arrived only tried a small amount on a spoon then a slug in my coffee , then chickened out and put the slug back in garden , put some in coffee should have been more to have added full flavour cannot wait to try the rum .

At least you're still here to tell the tale Paul. :)

How did it taste?
