4 health benefits you need to know
My first identity in life was that of an athlete. I played professional hockey and cycled 3,907 miles across America. Well-being is at the heart of my activity.
I am also sober. The non-alcoholic beer gave me the opportunity to enjoy the beach beers and brewery Saturdays that I loved so much during my “drinking days”, and now, as I return to training for an expedition. 2021 has become a trusted training partner.
I’m a huge fan of non-alcoholic beer before a workout, after a race, at tailgates, at summer barbecues, on boats and yes, even with breakfast. I used to ask, is there ever a bad time to eat spinach? Now I ask if there’s ever a bad time to drink non-alcoholic beer.
I’m also not the only former pro-athlete to drink alcohol-free beer. I first heard Andy Ramage, founder of OYNB and TEDx presenter, on the Rich Roll Podcast in 2019 shares his journey from professional footballer to alcohol-free adult. “I drink non-alcoholic beer a lot more regularly than I have ever had alcoholic beer,” Ramage said. “Alcohol-free beers are much more enjoyable and they don’t take away your time, energy and momentum in your life.”
The bottom line: Non-alcoholic beer can be a great option for anyone and can have a number of health benefits. Let’s go for breakfast beers!
