List of the best low alcohol beer options, as ranked by beer lovers and critics. There’s nothing quite like drinking a nice cold beer after a tough day at work or during a fun Saturday afternoon cookout with your friends and family. However, there are always times when drinking a lot of alcohol just isn’t an option for you. Maybe you are the designated driver for your group or perhaps you have to be at work first thing in the morning and can’t risk a hangover. Whatever the reason for not being able to drink alcohol, it doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a light beer or a small ale (or two).
The beers on this list either have no or very little alcohol content (or ABV) in them. The ABV ranges from 0.40%, like in O’Doul’s beer, to 4.20%, like in Miller Lite, Bud Lite, and many more. These near beers still have the same type of taste as regular beer, but without the alcohol that can have negative effects on you. Since the taste of beer doesn’t come from the alcohol, it often tastes pretty much the same. These small beers will give you the same feel of drinking a regular beer without all the buzz.
