Like many people my social life is centred around pubs, bars and restaurants , but when I was diagnosed with a liver issue at the beginning of this year I became teetotal.
It was only then that I realised how few pubs and bars in the UK sell non-alcoholic beers (and often accompany this message with a suppressed snigger that someone could want such a thing).
This rather archaic approach is completely in contrast to the Continent. I travel to France, Spain and Switzerland regularly and it is very rare to find any bar that does not sell at least one version of a non-alcoholic beer. The irony is, that because of this, the selection and quality are far superior to that which can be found in the UK.
Given the Governments drive to improve our health and cut down on drinking and driving it would seem that my suggestion could only provide positive benefits.
Why does this idea matter?
