"DOES 0.5% ABV COUNT AS ALCOHOL-FREE?"

0.5% ABV or 0.05% ABV?

You've probably seen them in the store before - beers with 0.5% ABV listed on the label. You might be wondering, does 0.5% ABV count as alcohol-free? The answer is yes! 0.5% ABV is well below the threshold for being considered alcoholic, so these beers can be enjoyed by people who are avoiding alcohol for whatever reason. In this blog post, we will debunk the myth that 0.5% ABV is alcoholic and discuss why these beers are a great option for those looking for an alcohol-free beverage!

 

Why Is 0.5% ABV sometimes seen as Alcoholic?

There is a common misconception that any beer with 0.5% ABV or more is automatically alcoholic. However, this isn't the case! 0.5% ABV is actually the threshold for being legally defined as an "alcoholic beverage" in many countries, but that doesn't mean all beers with 0.5% ABV are alcoholic.

 

Will 0.5% ABV Get Me Drunk?

The short answer is no. 0.5% ABV is not enough to cause intoxication in most people. In fact, you would need to drink more than 20 beers with 0.5% ABV in order to reach the legal limit for driving!

While many may think that there is a significant difference between 0.05% and 0.50% ABV, but the differences are actually negligible in terms of whether it will get you drunk.

In fact, here are a few daily essentials that you probably con-site everyday that has around 0.5% ABV:

- Ketchup has 0.67% ABV

- Orange juice has 0.18% - 0.43% ABV

Ripe Banana has 0.3% - 0.57% ABV

 

So Why Do Some Non-Alcoholic Beers Have 0.5% ABV instead of 0%?

Actually, most high quality alcohol-free beers are never 0% as it is impossible to completely remove alcohol from beer. 0% beers tend to taste watered down and are often not brewed at all (think mixed like a soft-drink with malt extracts).

Breweries that produce alcohol-free beers will usually aim for a 0.5% ABV in order to ensure that the beer still tastes good and doesn't have any of the negative characteristics associated with 0% beers.

Higher quality alcohol-free beers that are naturally brewed to 0.5% ABV, in our experience, taste much better than ones with 0% and retains maximum flavour.

 

Conclusion

So there you have it - 0.5% ABV does count as Alcohol-Free! These beers are a great option for those looking for an alcohol-free beverage, and we recommend giving them a try. Cheers!

Really impressed with this

After an initial delivery issue (resolved by Mark personally) I am really impressed with these beers. The lager is delicious and does seem to have a relaxing effect. A much better option for the couple of 'decompression beers' at the end of a busy day and ideal for those wanting an effortless way to reduce alcohol intake.

Hi Ed, thanks for your review of Impossibrew! We're glad you enjoyed the lager and found it to have a relaxing effect. Reducing alcohol intake can be difficult, but with Impossibrew it's easy! Thanks for choosing us and we hope you'll continue to enjoy our beers.

Nice taste, would love a lower price point!

I bought these as a gift for my partner and he really enjoyed them. I liked them as well, I found it was a slow drinker (i.e. not one that I would want to chug down) because of the full flavour but that is not a bad thing! However in order to purchase more regularly we would need a lower price point.

Thank you for your kind words, Sarah! We're glad to hear that you and your partner enjoyed our Impossibrews. We completely understand that a higher price point can be a barrier for some people, so we're constantly looking for ways to make our product more accessible. Thank you again for your support, and we hope you'll continue to enjoy our beers in the future!

Great beers!

A friend of mine introduced me to the lager and I was very impressed. I recently ordered the pale and likewise enjoyed them too. The only downside is the cost, I can buy much cheaper alcohol substitutes from the supermarket although admittedly they’re not half as nice. Will definitely buy again, perhaps as more of a treat

Thank you for your kind words about our beer, C. We're glad you enjoy them! I'm sorry to hear that the cost is a downside for you, but I hope you'll continue to enjoy them as a special treat.

We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you again soon.

Great taste

Awesome taste, the best substitute I’ve had to the real thing, definitely worth it, not sure of the other claimed effects eg, calming ingredients etc however, for an non alcoholic substitute, bang on!👍🏾

Hi John, thanks for the great review of our Impossibrew! We're really glad you enjoy the taste and that it's been a good substitute for the real thing. Thanks again for your support!

Very plesantly surprised

As quite a major craft beer drinker there is always scepticism around non alcoholic lagers but I was really pleasantly surprised by this. This does not taste like your typical lager but I really like the herbal flavours that the 'enhanced' ingredients bring and yet it still tastes like a beer but not overly sweet like a lot of non alcoholic beers are. Great addition to the market, you do get a nice relaxed buzz and I can definitely see myself having a regular supply

Thank you for trying Impossibrew, Colette! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed it. Our goal was to create a beer that tastes like the real thing, without the alcohol. We're glad we were able to achieve that and that you can see yourself having a regular supply. Thanks again for your support!
