I need to use fake beer for a shoot. Can anyone tell me how this can be done. I needs to be non-alcoholic and must be foamy and poured like beer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Non alcoholic beer looks pretty good, just doesn't taste so good.

It needs to be something that is not beer at all. "Non alcoholic" beer still has alcohol. I need something i can make from ingredients.

There is alcohol-free, rather than low-alcohol, beer. I can't think why you have to make it, rather than buy it.

Here are some alcohol free beers, some of which contain no alcohol.

Of course you could use the real thing:



I believe there were 7 takes.

A glass like that with a lot of head looks like about 200ml, the size you get in Köln.
Whilst 1.4l of 5% Carlsberg is a little challenging, and I'd much prefer Kölsch, it's still only about the same alcohol content as a bottle of Mosel Riesling and I'm sure John Mills took it in his stride. Although sitting down no doubt helped.
I don't know about you colonials but anyone in the film industry here would surely be able to down that much without breaking step.

I think Non-alcoholic beer should look enough like real beer. I guess since Non-alcoholic beer has a little bit of alcohol in it, then maybe applejuice would work. Shaking it up and pouring it might give it a good beer-like head.

If you end up using alcohol-free beer, you should be able to make the head last longer by adding a little salt.
