Non-alcoholic beer is often associated with weak flavour, or worse, no flavour. But that’s changing. More and more, consumers are reaching for low- or no-alcohol beers when they’re cutting calories or avoiding alcohol. A growing variety of options and flavour profiles is now available to beer lovers.
With the support of Beer Canada and provincial brewer associations, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will be amending the beer compositional standards section of the Food and Drug Regulations—referred to as the Beer Standard—to clarify beer rules and support innovations in the brewing industry.
