- Brewers don't pay federal excise tax on no-alcohol beer, which
boosts profit margins by $18 per barrel.
- The California Highway Patrol recently instructed its officers
not to arrest anyone for drinking no-alcohol beers while driving.
This, despite language in the state Vehicle Code that says a
beverage with any amount of alcohol is considered alcoholic and
therefore isn't compatible with driving motor vehicles.
- Domestic no-alcohol brews have 65 to 76 calories.
- The Big 3 employ different processes. Miller cooks Sharp's at a
low temperature, thereby avoiding production of alcohol. Anheuser-
Busch makes a regular beer and then removes the alcohol. Coors uses
a special yeast and brewing process that together produce less alcohol.
