The alcohol content of beverages of all kinds only has to be stated on the label from 1.2% vol. Beer or wine with less than 0.5% or 4 g/l alcohol may be labelled "alcohol-free". This status can only be achieved by reducing the alcohol content. Non-alcoholic or low-alcohol drinks are also referred to as NoLo (no and low alcohol). A special form was Near Beer (meaning "almost like beer"), which was produced during American Prohibition from 1920 to 1933. See also low alcohol (0.5% to 5%) and alcoholic drinks.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
