Oh hey we tried this one tonight! It was super good, when I logged it in Untappd I saw someone else noted that they made an ice cream float with it and I absolutely want to get more and do that.
Interesting! One thing that I learned while researching this is that Spain has a pretty big NA beer culture. I haven't seen any of them in the US, but I'm especially bummed that I can't track down this tostada beer as it sounds absolutely amazing.But actually, one of the other reasons I'm interested in NA beer was from when I heard that the German Olympic teams drink it all the time, it's their sports drink of choice over gatorade etc. And the idea of being at a HEMA event and cracking open a beer between matches instead of drinking gatorade is a funny and very appealing one to me. One with extra electrolytes could be all the more interesting (and effective?) for that. It's what plants crave, after all
I used VV's referral code and got three sample sixpacks of NA beer from BetterRhodes, myself (the Ales, the IPAs, and the dark beers). I've only had 6 total so I have a ways to go, but so far my favorite has been Bravus brewing - their peanut butter dark beer and their IPA were both almost good enough that I forgot I was drinking NA. Their oatmeal stout was OK but still tasted like NA beer.
Oh yeah, I'm definitely not keeping this up once I find a few I like and can find locally. But that's the tough part here, there is only one store that consistently seems to have single cans of NA beers and the stock is very random. Every other store only has six packs and that adds up quick. Also sadly the majority of NA beers just aren't that great and I'd be really annoyed at having to drink 5 more of a lot of the ones I've tried so far.phew, shipping from these places is steep.
