Default Non-alcoholic beer

No, I don't drink it. But I had some left over from a previous party. It's Busch NA and O'douls. I was going to pour it out but was wondering, could I use it cooking in place of regular beer? beer can chicken? sauces? Or go back to option 1 and pour out?

Use it, Richie. The alcohol burns off and really doesn't effect meat that much anyway, but those 'beers' will still have malts and hops that will impart some flavor.

Yep, what Arlin said. The alcohol burns off when heated anyway. Odouls aint realy that bad. Don't make a habit of drinking it, but when riding the scooter it's sometimes prudent.

Yup, I'd say use it too. And if ypu want to use it in a marinade or sauce or something where you think the alcahol is important, you can get back close to standard alcohoic content by adding about one ounce 80 proof vodka per can.

Or just use it as is and drink the ounce vodka shot...

I have drank the O'douls a few times. not bad, but would not go out looking ofr it. Kinda a waste of time to drink NA beer to me. Anyway if you are using it for cooking, should have no problem. Of course you can have fun and bartend for a friend and give it to him in mug, or glass. Just let him think he is drinking real beer. Then watch him get "drunk".

Seems like I read a piece in Cook's Illustrated where they determined that the alcohol doesn't necessarily burn off when heated. I'll look it up when I get home.

Cool.....I'll try it. At least now I can take it out of the fridge and put it on the shelf to make room for the real brew. Thanks.

Ice.....never done that with beer but growing up, some buddies and I played a trick on a guy. Took a cigarette, cut the filter off it and rolled it on both ends. Gave it to a guy and told him it was one of them there "special" cigarettes. He actually thought it was the real thing too. It was hiliarious watching him get "high" and then telling him the truth later.

Did it once in high school at a party. Told everybody the punch was spiked when in truth it only had 7UP added. Watched one girl actually get sick from it.

I have been known to drink NA beer every once in a while. I have noticed that it seems to be best when I have been working my butt off and need a big drink. The alcohol in regular beer can dehydrate you but the NA beer does not. It also is not sweet like normal soft drinks. I use to be a long distance runner ('bout 100 lbs ago) and it worked as well for me as anything after a run. You can gulp down a couple of these and it really quinches your thirst. Now after saying that I will also say that when you want a good beer then this stuff will only leave you wanting. It is not a "good beer", but for a non-sweet thirst quincher it will do fine.
