Recommend a decent AF Beer

Thanks! . Am quitting alcohol for a few weeks, hopefully longer. But I do like a nice beer. Would love some recommendations!

Pure Brew is a new one from Open Gate Brewery/Diageo. It's pretty nice. It's 0.5% rather than completely alcohol free.
There's one in Dunnes that's only 64 cent a can that's decent, I'll have to check the name of it though.

Just tried Krombacher and it is decent. It is <.5% but tastes pretty close to the real deal.

Baltika 0% was one I used to find in a few pubs and was quite nice. Not as sweet and sickly as most AF beers.

Tried a few places today in Galway city for Heineken 00 not stocked yet I was disappointed. I was away for weekend and looking forward to trying a few bottles of it.

Guys. I cannot reccomend the new alcohol free guinness pure brew enough. It tastes lovely.

I have unintentionally ended up not drinking the past month or so. Sun was shining the other day. Got a Guinness alcohol free lager. Tasted amazing. And i had no temptation to continue on.
I knew that I had treated myself to a nice "time out" and had a chat with friends. I then went home and had a herbal tea and wonderful sleep ☺
