Brews Without Booze
After eating, drinking, and partying during the holidays, it's time to recover from all that excess and observe "Dry January." Or perhaps you don't drink alcohol at all, but enjoy the taste of a fine malt beverage. Believe it or not, the tiny sliver of a market for non-alcoholic beer in the U.S. is growing, and even craft brewers are getting in on the act. Cheapism rounded up a sampling of non-alcoholic beers — all of which contain 0.5% or less alcohol by volume (ABV) — from grocery and liquor stores in Austin, Texas, and tasted them to see how they compare to a bottle of Budweiser, which for the record has 145 calories and 5% ABV. Cheers!
