As brewers, we view beer as a wonderful thing. We dedicate our lives to producing it and improving it, and consuming it fills us with joy. Beer is how we express ourselves and is something we love to share with the world. Sadly, for standard beer there are many people who can’t, don’t or won’t enjoy it because it contains alcohol. Today, thanks to years of hard work, research and experimentation it is possible to make great tasting beer without the alcohol.
