Mostly that there's no alcohol in it and I don't like beer.

I waited until at least 2 years post-op for actual alcohol. I didn't hit goal until about 3 years to put it in context.

Good luck,

Any positive or negative experiences with zero alcohol beer.

But won't zero/low alcohol beer still be carbonated? Seems that might be a problem. I have had some wine after 3 months with no problem except feeling guilty about the empty calories.

For beer in my future, I am looking forward to realxing by the pool sipping on a cold non-carbonated type in the near future. Look into "nitro" and "cask-conditioned". There are some really good Nitro craft beers that I've had in the past.

Yep, I'm pushin 70 and as they say "Old enough to know better but too old to care". 🍻

It's still got carbonation, and it's hard to see a non alcoholic flat beer as appealing no matter how enthusastic of a beer fan you are.

Also, non alcoholic beers are not going to be low in carbs or calories.

If this is a "recovery" thing, I have known several people who drank NA beer and it caused them to fall off the wagon because it just made them crave the real thing. If this is a calories thing, you're probably going to be better off looking for one of those low carb, super low calorie beers that don't have much alcohol anyway.

Or...just don't. The carbonation is going to be the real issue here.

whats the point? Get use to drinking Water and zero sugar/carb, no carbonated drinks. I am 10+ months post op i think. The only carbonated drink i have been able to have without issue is redbull and its because its lightly carbonated. and that was like 6+ months after surgery. I have yet to even attempt alcohol. I took a few sips of a pepsi and it was not too pleasant.

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
