    Non-alcoholic beer yeah?

    No, beer is haram even when non-alcoholic

    “If a large quantity of a given drink intoxicates, then a small quantity of that drink is forbidden.

    The OP might be referring to something like the non-alcoholic beer I've bought before in a Muslim country. I've never seen it in Ireland anyway.

    Fine on a hot day where you like having a cool beer in your hand, or if you've guests who are driving and would like a beer. When travelling in North Africa, the alternative there among the locals was small glasses of very strong sweet mint tea, which I found hugely refreshing and still grow mint today as a result. Other places in the Middle East I've been to, I used to be given strong sweet black tea when my colleagues were going off to prayer. Ok, but not as nice.

    If you've a problem with drink, a good juicer or nutribullet makes a great investment as you can make a wide variety of very tasty, healthy beverages. Trying to cut down on the beers myself at the moment and enjoy a mix of limes, green apple, ice and soda water with a dash a elderflower cordial. So much nicer than pretend beer.

    Not true. I have met Muslims and read Fatwas that say it is only haram if it has alcohol. I know there is beer which is branded halal in Iran.

    you cant consume alcohol in Iran, (I accept it happens but its still the law)

    you have to apply for a licence if you are a foreigner and can only buy it in certain places

    its hudud.

    Doesn't that mean that if a large quantity of (say) Guinness intoxicates, then a small quantity of that drink (Guinness) is forbidden.

    What else do you expect from those heretical sons of dogs, the Persian shi-ites.

    and the word halal is in inverted commas when used to describe it.

    Taybeh, launched an alcohol-free “Halal”version of its ale.

    did you read the article you posted?
    It makes a distinction between low-alcohol beers, which are haram, and alcohol-free beers, which are not. However much of an alcohol-free beer you drink, it won't make you drunk. (It will make you sick, though. So don't try this at home.) And there's a large and growing market in the Middle East for alcohol-free beers.

    You can by the Barbican non-alcoholic malt beverage in many Asian supermarkets. Its called a malt beverage as technically its not a beer. Its also made in Saudi Arabia (I think) so definitely Halal!
