Cnnmn, it took me a minute to catch it because I don't usually think about making non-alcoholic beer (the alcohol's half the fun!), but I'm sure that's what he meant by "NA beer."

Is this how NA beer is made? If so, I don't imagine you could do it with a hoppy brew, as the flavor and aroma of the hops would volatilize during the boil.

NA Beer is like drinking decaffeinated coffee or veggie bergers.

I beg to differ! N/A beer allows one to drink MORE beer in any circumstance. For example needing to stay just under the legal driving limit, or just below the clinical diagnostic threshold of cirrhosis of the liver.

I like to get my buzz to wherever I want it to be that night, and continue to drink beer. N/A alternated with regular helps keep me happy and buzzed all night and turns the day after a 6 beer night into a normal day instead of a day spent in the fetal position making deals with God over a porcelain alter.



BoB

BTW, after 2 cups of coffee I switch to decaf. Can't see the point of veggie burgers though. Cows don't move much, they're practically a vegetable....
