3 Removal of alcohol from beer
You may be surprised to hear that beer which is advertised as ‘alcohol-free’ is not completely what it seems. In fact, beer can be advertised as alcohol-free if it is found to contain less than 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). Amazingly, that’s roughly the same percentage of alcohol found in freshly squeezed orange juice, or a very ripe banana. Technically, it still contains alcohol but not enough to get you drunk.
How many bottles of alcohol-free beer are equivalent to one standard bottle of beer?
You would need to drink approximately nine bottles of alcohol-free beer to drink the equivalent of one bottle of standard lager (4.5% ABV).
The majority of alcohol-free beers are lagers, although some varieties of pale ale do have low-alcohol equivalents.
