Do a google search for it on the boards. The general consensus is that yes, you can, but it is overly difficult and expensive to do so.

Would he drink a 3.0% ABV beer? That's difficult but very doable and will taste a lot more like real beer than one that's been heated to drive off alcohol. You might be able to get down to 2.6% ABV and still have a good beer.

unfortunately not. he drinks kaliber right now because its the only non-alcoholic beer with flavor that he's found. so i figured i see if i could make him a nice full flavored non-alcohic beer myself.

he used to brew himself and loved the dark ales and hefewiezens so next time i'll brew a dark ale or stout and make some with no alcohol for him.

Heating beer to remove the alcohol isn't that big a problem. If the style requires a high level of hop flavor/aroma, you can make hop teas & dry hop, after the removal.
