I was lazing around on twitter today when I got a reply from the Spanish Restaurant
I had previously aksed them if they serve alcohol free beer and they kindly replied with “Yes” which I love to hear!
They serve ‘MAHOU LAIKER SIN’
Now, This popular Spanish beer is 0.8% which is classed as low alcohol and technically not ‘alcohol free’ which would be 0.5% and below….So depending on your needs ie. medical conditions, alcohol consumption levels etc.
Personally, I would happily drink this because I know Im not going to get drunk –
Alcohol free beer is very popular in Spain and available in most tapas bars and off license..
I still get excited when I learn that a major restaurant or bar provides alcohol free alternatives. Especially when I can enjoy a delicious meal with alcohol free beer, friends and family!
So big thanks to everyone at La Tasca, “Salud”
To buy Spainish alcohol free beer online visit;
I was chilling out the other night watching ” That sunday night show” on ITV1 and was surprised to know that Bavaria Wit beer and original sponsors the show!
I was so happy I did a little dance..
It’s the first alcohol free advert I have seen in the UK. Perfect for Sunday nights when most people are thinking about going back to work Monday and can’t really get drunk or have one to many..
Here are the clips for you to check out, I certainly fancy some Wit beer now..The show isn’t bad either :0)
When I first read about this drink on alcoholfreereview.com, I was really keen to try it out.
Mainly because it is a non alcoholic drink that has been brewed with English barley and hops and blended with fruit juice to give a hint of citrus.
These drinks have never contained alcohol in the process, making them very unique and a whole new generation of drinks.
I was really impressed with the bottle image and style. I also love the name and think the play on word ‘brew’ really works as it associates with beer. The taste was fantastic. I really felt like I could drink this on a night out or sat in a beer garden in summer.
Infact I took a bottle to a party one Saturday night and a friend who was drinking beer commented on how nice it was!
They are available in Waitrose and they also make a Soft Brew under M&S.
Flavours including, Apple, Citrus and Blackcurrant
I will be adding any bars, delis etc serving Soft Brew onto the alcohol free Map!
I think this drink is certainly in a league of its own. Its not trying to be anything it’s not and it’s completely original and a great alternative to beer or cider.
Look out for big things happening with this drink in the new year!
Thanks to everyone at Soft Brew for making this happen :0)
Did I mention it pours with a head!!!!??

Will be serving Veltins Alcohol Free on DRAUGHT!
Veltins is one of Germany’s best Pilsner largers and I had the pleasure of drinking a few alcohol free bottles last Christmas.
Heres a bit about why its so good;
“Regarded as one of the finest examples of a German Pilsner. Veltins is brewed in Sauerland, near Dortmund to the German Purity Law of 1516.
Using natural spring water from its own mountain, Veltins has a superb delicate dry and clean palate with a fine carbonated body that gives a slight bitterness with a light citrus finish.” (Puritybrewing.com)
So to find a venue in the UK that offers this quality beer on draught, is just amazing.
I really hope it is the first of many and I hope you guys get to try it (Let me know if you do)
They are on the Map
Cheers everyone x

The weather is changing and were moving into autumn and winter, we all need a little comfort food :0)
Im thinking Sausages, Stake, Mash, Chargrilled Chicken, Jacket Potatoes..Mmmm
Jack Daniel’s sauces give you the American authentic taste and the experience of the real thing. (without getting drunk of course)
Ps. T.G.I Fridays serve Jack Daniel’s Sauce with Chicken, Steak, Prawns etc
Available from Sainsburys & Most major supermarkets in the sauces section
Going for a meal in town? Both these major chain restaurants are serving Becks Blue.
So grab a burger and a beer!
An important lesson.
Try this next time you enjoy an alcohol free wheat beer such as
- Erdinger alcohol free
- Bavaria WIT
- Maisel’s Weisse
- Schneider Weisse
