Don’t understand the point of nonalcoholic beers? Try getting knocked up. All booze-free beers have an odd malty emptiness to them, but this hefeweizen-style brew actually works with that absence to create something that tastes pretty good. Serving Erdinger in a glass settles the high carbonation a bit, but robs you of the whole point of the exercise: swilling a cold beerlike substance from a cold bottle. Our solution: Open the bottle and let it rest in the fridge for 15 minutes before consuming. Cheers? — Eva Moore
