I'll stick with conventional beer - tried and tested by countless people over centuries.

I'd try it. Over time these things improve. I remember the first veggie-burgers then last year I had a beyond burger - very impressed.

I have Sentia on my to-try list, a non-alcoholic spirit. One of the founders is Prof David Nutt who got sacked from his government job mainly due to harm caused by drugs research which puts alcohol right at the top. :(

Whoa!

Legal druggies ... just the job ...
Collider beers will be available to buy in 330ml bottles (£32 for 12) and 330ml cans (£30 for 12) via the Collider webshop.
Humm, bit steep though. Think I'll stick to visiting Jack from down road for his stuff.

I was only looking this morning at plants that contain nootropic ingredients (there is a BBC article about low alcohol beers this morning that prompted me to look), and I've been wanting to make a beer flavoured with different herbs and plants for a while. Mine will still have alcohol in though =D>
