NA Beer :(

Ok, so i'm on an official break from drinking. I'm underage, and had a bad experience this last october, and have done a good job staying sober so far.

Problem is im really a beer fan. So i've started to drink a good amount of NA beer. So far, its been mostly "Old Milwaukee", which doesn't taste too bad.

Anyone else out there have any other reccomendations? Im curious to see if any of the other NA's are any good. But then again, im probably just going to buy the cheapest i can, because who the hell buys expensive NA Beer?

So any suggestions?
Who all makes NA? I know odouls, i think coors does, and this stuff i've got. Thats all ive seen....

Re: NA Beer :(

Here's a wierd suggestion....Just get some apple juice and gingerale. Mix those two together (start with the gingerale and start adding apple juice to taste) and it'll taste a lot (if not exactly like) near-beer. That should be cheaper than buying packs of NA beer.

Re: NA Beer :(

Re: NA Beer :(

No kidding! From what I can tell, that combination tastes just like beer, but I'm not a beer drinker so it may taste totally different to others.

Re: NA Beer :(

Well, yah, i got caught.

Long story short i ate about 1/2 tub of redvines before i drank way too much Jose Cuervo, and when i passed out and yaked people around me thought it was blood. So i spent the night in the ER and had to tell my parents and now they know i was drinking and had to pay bills and in general all bad!

But its pretty funny looking back......

Re: NA Beer :(

You realize that drinking near beer is just as illegal for you don't you. Near beer still has a slight amount of alcohol in it. Something like .2%, which means that it is illegal for cunsumption, or purchase by minors. As far as near beer taste goes, I can't stand any of it that I have tried. Just give me a cold Coors Original, or Budweiser, and I'll be happy.

I personally don't believe in the drinking age laws, and have ignored them repeatedly in the past. Something just doesn't seem right when you are legally an adult in every way, except if you want a drink. [img]images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img]

I feel if a person is mature enough to help elect our leaders, be tried as an adult in criminal cases, and sign up or be drafted into our military, then they are mature enough to drink.

I only got caught once, in Wisonsin, and it cost me $100. The cop was really cool though since he pulled me over for my tailights being out and I blew a 0.04%. He said since I was truthful about everything he would just give me a consumption ticket, as long as I didn't drive away. So I called a tow truck and went back to my hotel and finished getting wasted. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: NA Beer :(

Wow, .04 and u didn't get a DUI? You REALLY lucked out.

But uh, you're wrong about the consumption of NA beer. Yeah, its 0.05% alcohol, but minors can purchase it. Ive purchased it a few times, and was only asked for ID once when someone thought it was real beer. And you know how many you'd have to drink to get 0.01 BAL?

Re: NA Beer :(

I personally like O'Doell's (spelling) the near beer made by Budwiser. I think that it tastes the best of all of the near beers.

Re: NA Beer :(

That is kinda funny DHComp!!! Ya when you're older you will be able sit back and laugh at that, including your parents... I think drinking age laws are kinda good since most kids don't listen that means there would be more DUI's... But its funny if your 18, you fly a fighter jet, drive a tank and drop warheads and etc and get married, but your not old enough to DRINK BEER! Very uhh weird.
