It’s both healthy and trendy to drink non-alcoholic beer. Nearly one in ten beers sold in the Swedish trade today are non-alcoholic. The trend is growing and spreading rapidly all over the world. Factors to the trend might be that we have a bigger interest in health and awareness of how alcohol affects the body. One reason could also be that we more frequently visit restaurants on weekdays compared to before, and then want to enjoy a beer without alcohol.
Sour Beer gets its sour taste by having the beer spontaneously fermented or by adding lactic acid bacteria. Most often, sour beer is created by the breweries experimenting with aromas and flavours from different berries and fruits. The trend started a few years ago but gets bigger every day.
