I've found what I believe is the best near beer I've ever consumed at an Original Joes here in Victoria, B.C. It is called Maisel Weisse Alcohol Free - a Belgian wheat beer. Has anyone got a line on where this product can be purchased online here in Canada?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the article. I look forward to more quality options (as opposed to more Exel-like options) becoming available.
I also hope to find more good-quality de-alc wines. So far, I've only found one decent white.
And some passable whisky or bourbon would be nice, too.
(This stuff - Arkay - exists but, by all accounts, it's pretty bad. That said, I may try a bottle of their Scotch...to find out for myself just how bad that is. )

Can Nonalcoholic Beer Save Big Brewers?

|reddwarf||While this isn't as low as 0.5% ABV, the Bellwoods Stay Classy India Session Ale is 2.3%. It's quite good for such a low ABV. Flavourful with a nice aroma. The second version is circulating around Toronto at the moment. It's a little less thin and they've added Citra hops which gives it a little more character in addition to the Nelson Sauvin hops.|

A couple of weeks ago, on my way to visit my buddies in Oakville & Grimsby, I swung by PremiumNearBeer's depot in Brampton (just north of the 407) to pick up my order:
- one case of Krombacher Weizen and one of Pilsener; and
- a mixed-case containing two each of 12 different (near) beers.
Here's my take on the one's I've tried so far:
Krombacher - Weizen Alkoholfrei (5/5)
- Rich wheat-beer body, with delicious citrus-y flavour and a clean finish.
- Very nice, and even better than the Erdinger.
Krombacher - Alkoholfreies Pilsener (4/5)
- Crisp, clean, a little fizzy but quite nice!
- This promises to be a good patio beer.
Sagres - Sem Álcool (3/5)
- Light, with mild fizziness and pleasant bitterness.
- I look forward to trying a cold one of these on a hot day.
Clausthaler - Premium Classic Non-alcoholic (3/5)
- Light, with mild fizziness and bitterness.
- Tastes like a milder and more pleasant Becks or Grolsch. Nice.
Unicer - Super Bock Dark (3/5)
- Light, smooth, with a nice molasses flavour to the body and a very mild bitterness.
- Interesting, but not really much of a dark beer.
Clausthaler - Golden Amber Non-alcoholic (3/5)
- Light, thin, with mild fizziness and bitterness.
- It looks better than it tastes, and although it's not bad, it's not particularly interesting, either.
Gerstel - Alkoholfrei (2/5)
- Light, quite fizzy, mild, uninteresting.
- Not much different from a Molson Exel.

Eljay I didn't see Butter Beer on that list?
I joke but there are actually recipes out there.
Also, I seem to recall you being a fine single malt Scotch drinker. Your friends were indeed lucky!
My neighbor is nursing and was a beer lover. She said the other day she really misses beer. Especially when the boys get together with a growler of Ashton Vanilla Stout or a Tom Green milk stout.
Ok so the next time I am hosting I will be able to pull something from here.
Thanks for the Kichesippi tip.
