Finding non alcoholic beer to buy can be a frustrating task. It can take numerous trips to stores around town, and online shopping can get tricky with shipping costs and timing. While we aren’t quite at a point where there are huge online shops with non alcoholic beer from around the globe, there are still some great options at hand. And with COVID still affecting our lives, shopping online ensures you and your family can stay safe at home.
No more digging through liquor store shelves- read on to check out 7 places where you can buy non alcoholic beer online!
While this may seem like the most obvious option for buying non alcoholic beer online, it remains the most efficient and reliable way to order NA. Breweries will likely always stock their own websites before other online shops, so this can be a great way to stay on top of your favorite styles or new releases. The following breweries all offer some or all of their products for online ordering:
*Note that some states have different laws regarding non alcoholic beer shipments, so always double check before ordering!
While direct from brewery can be a great option, it limits buyers to those brand offerings only. If you’re looking to sample different styles and brands, there are some online stores that can still help.
Amazon politics aside, this e-commerce giant has one of the best selections for non alcoholic beers. They have all of the classic imports including Heineken 0.0, Erdinger NA, Buckler NA and Clausthaler. Some of these are available in smaller portions, but many are sold in cases. That said, if you’re looking to stock up without leaving your house, Amazon is your best bet.
They also have a handful of craft brews available, as well as non alcoholic spirits and wine. With their wide variety and approachable shipping rates, Amazon is a great choice to explore the non alcoholic category.
One of the only online shops dedicated solely to alcohol-free drinks, NA Craft Beverages is a promising site. They offer a great variety of craft brews, including Brooklyn Brewery’s Special Effects and Point 5’s Pilsner, both of which are not available on their own respective websites.
NA Craft Beverages also has an amazing selection of drinks beyond non alcoholic beer. Hop water, craft sodas and mocktails are also available. The only major downside is that many of the products are not in stock, and it’s not clear when they will be available for purchase. That said, this shop is a great resource for a variety of drinks.
While Total Wine is widely known to have a fully stocked NA section, many of the same products can be ordered and shipped online. They have a decent selection of craft beers, including Ceria’s lineup which cannot be found elsewhere online.
And, if you happen to live near one of the 200+ locations, you can even arrange for same day delivery. They ship to some U.S. states too, just check online to see if your state qualifies for delivery.
I’d never heard of Beverage Universe before, but they have a solid variety of imports and lighter non alcoholic beers for purchase online. In addition, they also have several mixed variety packs, which is great for sampling a number of different breweries.
Most of their beers are only available by the case, but if you don’t mind stocking up, it can be a great budget saver.
Well.ca is a great online hub for health and wellness products- including non alcoholic beer. Though it’s a Canadian-based company, well.ca also delivers throughout the United States, though shipping may cost more. They have a small variety of options from Partake and Grüvi, as well as the hard to come by Sober Carpenter beers.
The marketplace also offers some NA wines and spirits, as well as craft cider and shrubs. If you live in Canada, this site will likely have some of the best shipping rates to come by.
Another Canadian-based company, Cocktail Emporium ships to Canada, the USA and beyond (though no guarantees that shipping will be cheap). While a fun site for bar tools and unique glassware, Cocktail Emporium also sells low and alcohol free beverages and mixers.
Check out their selection of Partake and Grüvi, as well as spirits from Seedlip and Sobrii. They also have shrubs and tonic syrups, so you have all the tools to be a craft bartender at home! And take a look at this modern drink book with low/no alcohol cocktail recipes to whip up at home.
Though there may not be a ton of online retailers for non alcoholic beer, we hope this list helps you explore some new styles or breweries. As the NA space continues to grow, we can expect to see even more options and variety become available to us soon.
