100 alcohol free beer – Days
People often ask me about 100 alcohol free beer and of course what they mean is 100% alcohol free.
I have to be honest I am the same as I prefer zero alcohol beer as opposed to alcohol beer with low amounts of alcohol in them.
So in terms of alcohol by volume and that being zero well it’s really up there when I make my choice in terms of beer, wine and gin.
For me it’s my health and my safety but for others it’s just a personal choice and of course many people don’t drink for various reasons.
- They Don’t want to
- They Can’t
- They Choose Not to drink alcohol
From getting fit and healthy to some readers to this blog who just have an intolerance to alcohol.
There are more people who choose not to drink alcohol than you might think.
The reasons are numerous.
This is where a relatively new brand of alcohol free beer comes into the mix.
It’s called Days and it’s 0.0% and alcohol free.
And I have to say it’s getting rave reviews from you here on the blog and elsewhere.
So what is special about Days Beer?
Recently I reviewed Bear Drop Beer which is made in Wales and I got cheered on by the Welsh.
Now it’s the turn to celebrate the Scottish brewer in the 100 alcohol free beer category.
Days is a 0.0% abv alcohol free beer and has its origins in Scotland which is great.
Although I think its an alcohol free lager really!
In fact Scotland has in many ways been leading the charge on the impact of alcohol on society with law of price and regulation of sales on alcoholic drinks.
Not only is “Days Lager” a Non-Alcoholic Lager it ticks a lot of other boxes as well.
So it’s good if you are watching the calories as it is relatively low in that area.
It’s Vegan which continues to attract even alcohol based beer drinkers because they are looking for drink criteria that fits with their nutritional priorities.
Many people on the blog have also said that they appreciate the use of “Locally Sourced Scottish Water” and “Malt Barley” as more and more people are appreciating food and drink made near to them.
Local is a new trend that is coming back into fashion.
The fact that Days Lager uses locally sourced ingredients probably accounts for its clear and crisp taste. It just feels fresh.
It’s a bit like drinking stuff in Ireland, you just know it’s made locally. I don’t know how you can tell but you can!
The taste buds light up!
What’s in Days Lager Beer?
Apart from the fact it’s crisp and dry people go straight to the calories when it comes to alcohol free beer.
People often make the connection and here it’s a good story and it comes in at only 73 calories.
Now I am not a brewing expert and in fact I know more about beer since I became alcohol free than before when I drank alcohol .
However, if you are an expert you will have heard of Hallertau hops which are considered exceptionally good quality.
Days Lager say they use a unique alcohol free brewing process but then again lots of brewers do to be fair!
I would say however that whatever they do the taste is both a refreshing lager with a light malt feel.
Days alcohol free beer have kept some of the feel of alcohol beer and here you are not disappointed with malted floral and citrus essence jumping through.
Natural Ingredients and Credentials
Days uses sourced water from the nearby Scottish springs, malt barley and because of its vegan credentials it uses all natural ingredients.
You can actually tell the natural ingredients used from the taste.
The brewing process is like a few of the other Alcohol Free Beers and they don’t have to get rid of the alcohol or make it evaporate.
So it really is a truly alcohol free 0.0% beer.
Once you buy Days Alcohol Free Beer you are looking for 100 alcohol free beer but some of your investment goes into an activity to do with mental health.
It amounts to 2 percent of your spend and that I have to say is very impressive!
Days Beer also looks after the environment so the containing bottles are made for that purpose and of course the glass can be recycled, supplied in eco-friendly, recyclable glass bottles.
It’s a great advert for Scottish Brewing overall.

What are my pros and cons?
To be honest it’s hard to find many cons with this beer and it tastes fantastic and it would be up there with my favorites. I actually give it 9/10.

Days Beer accounts for 75 calories

- Needs to be really cold
- Can be a bit fruit orientated for some palettes
- Because of the calories being low you might over drink it!
- Remember alcohol free beer still has calories!
If you are worried about your drinking by the way and even think you just might be going over the limit the best resource to start out with is the drink aware website.
Remember 1 unit is a standard drink not a large one.
It is quite common for people to think a large glass of wine is 1 unit for example.

I predict local alcohol free brewing is going to be a trend moving forward.
To be honest, this is the sort of alcohol free beer that could go easily with any food.
It would not be out of place for an Indian if you could get away from the Cobra Zero. Which is excellent by the way.
Days Alcohol Free Beer is perfect for Thai, Chinese or Italian.
Thai works especially because of the freshness of the alcohol free lager and the spice combination.
However, the reason I really like this alcohol free beer is that it can be drunk by itself!
The problem with many alcohol free choice beers in the 100 alcohol free beer department is that people often try to pair it off with food because it might somehow mask the fact its got no alcohol!
In fact the opposite is true of this beer. You know it has no alcohol and it’s better tasting wine for it.
The by gone era of bad tasting alcohol free beer has gone thank goodness!
- It quenches a thirst pre-dinner or ideal for just a house party.
- It’s crisp by nature and that makes a massive difference!
