  • 1 can Seltzer Water, Ice Cold

  1. Measure all ingredients into cold beer glass. Add seltzer water and taste. May be adjusted to taste.

May be adjusted to your taste preference.

  • For more body and a darker beer add more basalmic vinegar.
  • For more like an IPA, use less basalmic and more white vinegar.
  • For more flavor, add nama shoyu, but be careful if you are watching sodium, it has the sodium of the recipe.

After mowing the lawn this summer what better than a cold dark beer?

Do you crave a beer after a lawn mowing session but are not imbibing for some reason? Then you'll love this! Using a can of ice cold seltzer water and three ingredients, this beer only takes a moment to put together. Grab your measuring spoons and get to the refrigerator. It is vegan and a raw food beverage as well.

Nama Shoyu is similar to tamari or soy sauce, if you wish to substitute.

This is a great low calorie substitute for a beer!

I've given up drinking and I don't miss it but I do miss a cold beer on a hot day, will give this a try. I've not come across Nama Shoyu before, will see if I can get it in the UK.

Johnny, thank you for commenting. I use Nama Shoyu because it's a raw product, but a good soy sauce or tamari can be substituted.
