Holsten – Enjoy A Beer In Dry July

Taking part in Dry July doesn’t mean going without a beer.

Holsten 0.0% allows you to enjoy the great taste of a premium German Pilsner, but still meet the fundamental requirement of not consuming alcohol.

Brewed by international brewer Carlsberg and distributed nationally by Coopers, Holsten is part of a world-wide trend towards alcohol-free beer for work, health or lifestyle reasons.

Coopers Marketing Manager Brewing Products, Scott Harris, says Holsten 0.0% is brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot), then the alcohol is removed, resulting in a premium beer that is packaged and tastes like a high quality international lager.

“The only difference is that it does not contain any alcohol at all. Holsten 0.0% has only 40 calories per service, which makes it a good alternative for the health conscious.”

Holsten 0.0% is available in 330 ml bottles for less than $10 a six pack. It is available at Dan Murphy’s.
