It’s Christmas season and there is always a lot of drinking going on so don’t get too drunk.  One alternative is non alcohol beer. Cheaper,  lower taxed, low alcohol (and no alcohol) beer was introduced to the Japanese market in 2003.  By law, non-alcohol beers in Japan can have up to 1% of alcohol.  Last summer, Nikkei’s Plus 1 日経プラス1 column presented the most popular non-alcohol beers ノンアルコール in Japan based on the consumer liking of the taste.

The top 10 non-alcohol beers available in Japan according to Nikkei are:
