NEED to go alcohol free? These are our top choices for guilt free beer in Spain. 

When I was told I could no longer drink due to new medication, I was a bit worried. 

What was I going to order when out with friends? Would I be stuck drinking coke, coffee and herbal tea for months on end? 

Luckily, I quickly discovered Spain has a variety of alcohol free beers on offer and I have made it my mission to try them all. 

So far, these are my top picks.

This beer retains the malty, bitter, subtle and smooth taste of the original Alhambra Especial lager. 

Carefully brewed, it has a sweet touch at the end which makes it perfect for enjoying alongside fish. 

The refreshing taste is also a great option for cutting through the spicy flavours of curry or Mexican food.
