It has been a year now since I last drank an alcoholic drink and in that time I have tried a large number of non alcoholic beers, wines and spirits. You can read the ones I tried at the start here.
I have noticed over the last year that the choices have certainly increased and the quality of the beers available has also got better. More often than not I have seen that there is at least one non alcoholic beer available on the drinks menus of many restaurants and cafes here.
For this post I have tried a few new beers and I have ranked them below with some notes on each. Cheers!
Don’t Worry (Hemp Ale) – Svaneke
I bought this can of beer at the Bornholm stand in Torvehallerne. I have tried a couple of other Svaneke beers with varying results. Don’t Worry is very refreshing beer and interestingly made from hemp, a very sustainable crop. I really enjoyed this beer and it will certainly be one I will have again.
This is a darker beer with a complex pilsner flavour. I really enjoy beers made with Saaz Hops and this is one that does, hence its very authentic beer flavour. It is kind of fruity but not a fruit flavoured beer. I bought it from the supermarket.
This beer is one of four I bought from the Mikkeller Bottle Shop in Torvehallerne. They usually have a good selection here and you can also get a lot of the beers in restaurants which carry Mikkeller beers as well as in their bars.
Weird Weather is another full and rounded flavoured beer. It is a New England style IPA.
A lot of non alcoholic beers can taste a bit watery but I found this one and the other Mikkeller ones to be very close to a ‘real’ beer. You can see their full range here.
Joint No 4
Energibajer – Mikkeller ( served in Sticks and Sushi)
These two made joint fourth as they were fairly similar on type. Lighter, more summery flavours and would go down very nicely as a drink in the sun or with a barbecue. They are both wheat ales.
The last three here were enjoyable but maybe not ones I would take as a first choice.
Gentle Lager – Tee Dawn (served in the restaurant BLOX Eats)
