Nonalcoholic beers and cocktails

Nonalcoholic beers are the same old thing under a different cloak: they taste just like a regular beer, but since they don’t contain alcohol, they lack the inebriating effect. In the Middle Ages, nonalcoholic beers were a less risky alternative to contaminated water, while alcoholic beer was mostly preserved for special events and celebrations. Nowadays, nonalcoholic beers are not needed to replace water, although it surely can provide the taste without the dangerous effect.
