FAQ

What is Better Rhodes?

Better Rhodes is a place where anyone and everyone trying to find tasty alcohol-free options can come and find the best that the AF & NA market has to offer. Better Rhodes was born when our founder, Chris Becker, couldn't find more than a few alcohol-free options. Even once he found them it was very expensive to buy a 6-pack from each company. Then comes Better Rhodes. We strive to give you the best alcohol-free options from all over the globe in one place at a reasonable cost. Our goal is to make alcohol free easy, great-tasting, and affordable.

What does "All Together" mean?

It means that no matter how you found Better Rhodes or an alcohol free lifestyle, we are all in it together. Whether you are sober, moderating drinking, an athlete training, participating in Sober October or Dry January, an expectant mom, or someone who is just simply doesn't drink... this is a place we can all come together and share recipes and support one another.

What kind of drinks do you offer?

We offer alcohol-free spirits, dealcoholized wines, low and no alcohol beers, pre-mixed alcohol-free cocktailssophisticated mixers, and non-alcoholic soft drinks. We are working constantly to be on top of the amazing new products the global market has to offer in order for you to get the best experience. Want something we don't carry? Email us and suggest it!

Are all of your beverages completely alcohol free?

We offer a mixture of no alcohol (0.0%) and low alcohol (<0.5%) in all beverage categories. Every product listed on our website is considered non-alcoholic (USA), which means they contain less than 0.5% alcohol-by-volume.  If you want/need to drink 0.0% alcohol, see product details for specific nutritional information.

Do these products really taste the same? / Does it taste like alcohol?

The creators and producers of our products have done an awesome job of capturing the flavors, aromas, and textures of their traditionally-made counterparts. However, there are differences from alcoholic products simply because they're missing the alcohol. We like to think of enjoying NA/AF beverages as a sibling experience to drinking, but not identical twins. We are confident you'll find options you'll enjoy just as much. We think you'll be impressed by the quality and tastes.

How should I enjoy these products? / This tastes bad?!

Alcohol-free spirits are not meant for taking shots!  We recommend the ritual of making a cocktail (mocktail) - especially for the spirit alternatives which are designed to be mixed into cocktails. If you are curious, you can try them plain, but it's not how they are meant to be enjoyed. For NA/AF wines, we recommend storing them in the fridge and serving in wine glasses. Ready-to-drink, sodas and sparklers are meant to be chilled and served straight from the can or bottle into a glass. Check out our recipes before you open that room temp bottle of an AF spirit and ruin your experience!

How should I store these products? / Do I need to refrigerate after opening?

Generally, everything can be stored at room temperature before you open it no problem. Please refer to the labelling on the bottle in question - generally we refrigerate all of our products after opening them. We recommend chilling both red and white wines.

Can I drink these products if I am pregnant or on medication?

The answer will always be to consult your doctor. Even though the majority of our products are 100% alcohol free, we are not medical professionals and don't pretend to be! We recommend consulting a professional for your personal situation.
