There is something about a chilled glass of beer that makes for the worst part of the day. Beer is one of the most important drinks that many of us consume. The interesting thing about malt-based drink is that it easily attracts even those who don’t consume alcohol.  Do we mean they drink beer as well? Oh not at all, but they are the costumers for sure.

Non-alcoholic beer is of four types - alcohol-free beer (0.05% ABV), de-alcoholized beer (0.5% beer), and low-alcohol beer (1.2% beer). Compared to regular beer this one has hardly any amount of alcohol percentage, it still isn’t alcohol-free.
