Why? Can you not drink alcohol? I had a non-alcoholic Becks once, couldn't tell the difference!

Don't know where you can get though, sorry.

Don't the big chain supermarkets have it? I'm pretty sure I have seen some in Carrerfour and RT Mart, though it may have been a mirage, as it's usually in the same isle as all the other sorry excuse for beer that is to be found in this country.

The correct answer is that "there is no such thing as non-alcoholic beer." They do have some sort of malt beverage at the supermarkets and something else that looks lighter in color but still 'beer-shaped'. I've never given it a closer look though.

El Toro are you a Mormon? Why the need for non-alcoholic beer? If you are cooking with it, might as well use the real stuff, it will mostly evaporate the alcohol off and the flavor will be better then with the fake stuff.

One option is purchasing some "bar beer" or "miller lite", which are as close to non-alcoholic beer.
