Whether you’re trying to put together the perfect mocktail or just looking for a good non-alcoholic beer to add to your rotation, if you come to Das Stahl, you’ve come to the right place. Here are just a few of the different non-alcoholic beverage types we have available for you to try:
Beer, wine, spirits: Staples of the alcohol world, there are many non-alcoholic versions available as well. Das Stahl offers an entire range of our favorite non-alcoholic beer, wine, and spirits.
Pre-made cocktails, verjus, aperitif: One of the biggest struggles with reducing alcohol intake is having to miss out on complex, crafted cocktails. Thanks to non-alcoholic mixers and pre-made cocktails, you still have the option to imbibe just like everyone else. Das Stahl also offer verjus (the pressed juice of unripened grapes) and several non-alcoholic aperitifs that you can drink alone or add to other beverages.
Craft soda, ginger beer, and HopTea: Not every non-alcoholic beverage is trying to mimic an alcoholic beverage. Das Stahl offers a wide range of Jones Soda flavors and ginger beers. If you are looking for something with a hop kick, take a look at HopTea.
non-alcoholic Craft Beer
It can be hard to find good recommendations for non-alcoholic craft beverages since the market is changing all the time and taste is subjective. However, there are a few brands that stand above the rest when it comes to offering the flavor experience of an alcoholic drink without the alcohol.
Weihenstephaner offers a few different styles of non-alcoholic beer that come as close to imitating a true beer as you could expect. If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic beer you can serve without anyone knowing the difference, this the one to try.
Non-Alcoholic Spirits and Wine
Spirits and wine are possibly the hardest of the alcoholic beverages to emulate, and so there is a wide range in the quality of these non-alcoholic beverages on the market. Typically, beverages with botanical bases, such as gin and aperitifs, will be the closest to their alcoholic counterparts. Some brands, such as Ritual, add pepper and capsaicin to their products to simulate the burn alcohol brings to the real thing. If you are looking for an Amaretto, look no further than Lyre’s Amaretti.
If wine is more your style, Das Stahl features a selection of both white and red non-alcoholic wines. You can pick up our single-serving bottles from Gruvi or a standard-size bottle of a Hand on Heart to share.
When it comes to replacing IPA beers with non-alcoholic versions, it’s hard to find a good one-on-one replacement. However, if you’re just looking for a drink to satisfy your hop craving, HopTea is a great beverage to try. While this isn’t a drink that can stand as a substitute for beer, it doesn’t try to be.
HopTea comes in classic tea flavors, such as black tea and chamomile, and several hop-themed flavors such as citra or mosaic hops. These refreshing teas are the perfect way to enjoy the floral aroma and hoppy flavors of traditional IPAs without the alcohol.
Non-Alcoholic Cocktails – Mocktails
