    The other night me and oh were in tesco and e got a pack of 6 becks beers when we got home and he was drinking them noticed that they had 'no alcohol' in them!!

    I don't now but I've been 'Straight Edge' for a few years and Becks is a fave amongst my crowd as it's actually 0.0% whereas most non-alcoholic beers have SOME alcohol in them !!

    Great with nachos FYI :)

    The cobra alcohol free one is quite nice too, but if you really like pear cider (I have quite a thing for it right now) you can get alcohol free Koppaberg too, from Tesco, Asda or Ikea, and its bloody lovely!!

    actually there is some alcohol left in there . legally o.3 % is legally declared as alcohol free. They use a special filtering method but after doing so they have to put some back again because otherwise it wouldnt taste good at all.

    There's a non-alcoholic beer that is quite commonly known in the States called O'Doul's, but maybe you can't get it over here?

    I was visiting Spain once with hubby and some family, and my hubby got a beer out of the hotel room's mini fridge and started drinking it. He commented on the taste, and my sister (who speaks Spanish) took one look at the bottle and immediately cracked up laughing, then kindly pointed out the innocuous small type on the label that read, 'sin alcohol'. ;)
