Alcohol-free wine/beer?

Postby Dolph » Fri, 04 May 2007 12:30 pm

Does anybody know if it's possible to buy (decent) alcohol-free wine and/or beer in Singapore? And if so, where?

Cheers... :)

The only excellent alcohol free wine I know of, is drinkingvinegar! Well the closest you will get to it, being fermented twice, once into alcohol, then vinegar! 9 flavours 38 NTUC outlets! You will recognise the bottle in the asian drinks section, it is indicated with wine vinegar on some of the bottles. Really good with soda water and/or a slice of lemon, depends on flavour of course, and its good for you. Best served chilled, but can be mixed with warm water too!

Clausthaler

For those who want to guzzle without the grisly after-effects, a new contender promises to deliver the taste but without the alcohol content. Transvision Marketing, a company which specialises in non-alcoholic beverages, has been importing Clausthaler (say clause-there-ler) from Germany since March.

Made in the same way with barley, hops and yeast as regular beer, the process is later reversed to extract the alcohol content. Touting the virtues
of having 40 per cent fewer calories than normal beer, it claims to be the 'unchallenged market leader for alcohol-free beer' in Germany.

According to a pilot study by Cologne Sports College, consuming non-alcoholic beer before sports can 'significantly improve maximum performance and stamina levels'.

And after sports, the same is considered as 'the ideal beverage to restore the body's reserves'.

For national servicemen who dread their 2.4km run, this would make working up a sweat sweet duty.

For free tours of Asia Pacific Breweries, call Mr Patrick Teo on 6860-3007, or e-mail patrick.teo@apb.com.sg

Clausthaler is available at NTUC FairPrice, Isetan and Meidi-Ya supermarkets at $1.20 a can and $1.70 a bottle.

For details, call Transvision Marketing on 6295-5750.


My boss and I go through several cases a week in the office. Pretty decent tasting I must say.

Thanks for your advise, guys. I think I'll give the drinking vinegar a miss though... Once had non-alcoholic wine in Europe which was lovely, but I haven't come across any here Singapore.

The Clausthaler sounds great!!

Thanks again 8-) .

But why Dolph?

Why not have something non-alcoholic if you dont want any alcohol.

Just find all the mock-stuff silly. Mock-meat for instance.

I also used to drink non alcoholic beer, when i was training at the darts club, after my 20th bottle, i was seeing double numbers, one can actually get quite tipsy, so be warned if driving! Vinegar is a much safer bet! and the taste is better too! Nothing like a pint of 11 acids, to charge the batteries up each day.

You were seeing double numbers because you eyeballs were floating! 20 cokes will make you tipsy as well will 20 glasses of water. Oh, If you are/were a beer drinker, I guarantee you that it tastes better than vinegar (I've tried both). It's a matter of personal preference! :P
