Default Street legal beer?

Heineken 0.0


Possibilities are endless...
•crawfish/beer for lunch-break
• walking around the shop with a cold beer
• cold brewski on your drive home

I’ve already forwarded it to my boss and he laughed... but I’m not laughing...

I don't understand the point... You get the calories, you drink stuff that doesn't taste as good as dr. pepper, you get full...and you don't get drunk. It misses the whole point of what beer does. I have never and will never drink non-alcoholic beer.

Only problem is it’s nasty. Best tasting NA beer is Busch NA.

I’m fortunate I can do the first one any day at work with real beer, the second would be found upon
Third one is a good idea

I’ve always been curious what it tasted like. I doubt I’d ever drink it but it is interesting

O’doul’s is the only “near beer” I’ve seen but it still has some alcohol in it.

I don't get it. What am I missing? Is there a cult following of people that enjoy beer without the alcohol effects? I mean I guess there is because quite a few companies invest in making the product. What's its purpose?

Edit... Ohhhhhhhhh I think I got it now. Makes sense. Thanks guys... Don't flame me too hard. It was my ignorance.

Might be why they are advertising 0.0
Most non-alcoholic beers are 0.05
They left out the next decimal place

Drank lots of near beer when I was a young one. I'm 65 now so it's been a few years. Cool kid back then. We all were at that age!

Beauty of owning your own business. Boss doesn't care if you have a beer or two with lunch or after the tools go up before you head home.

I know a guy that was a bad alcoholic that used NA beer to help him quit drinking. It worked and he’s been sober for around 7 years now and is a completely different man. At first he drank them like crazy now he just as a couple of the NA beers while playing golf, grilling out and etc. But I’m not kidding I watched him dust off like 4 or 5 six packs of that stuff during around of golf, but he said it for sure helped the “itch”.

My father in law was a very heavy drinker, and he used it to help him quit when we had my daughter roughly 4 years ago. Same way, at first he was drinking 1-2 12 packs a day, now he’ll have a few when we’re bbqing or boiling crawfish.

That Heineken 0 is actually real good. I had one with a buddy who don't drink and I was actually impressed.
