Austrian Jakobsgold alcohol-free organic enters pop chart

Your holidaying correspondent, though no connoisseur, could not help thinking this Austrian organic alcohol free beer has something a bit extra to it. And people with far more refined palates seem to agree, so it has been added to Alcohol Companion’s Top of the Pops, a highly unscientific list of drinkable alcohol free beers, wines and spirits. It does not seem to be available outside Austria at the moment, although perhaps it is in Japan. ■
