Is it illegal to sell nonalcoholic beer to minor?!

Question: Is it illegal to sell nonalcoholic beer to minor!?
No, perfectly legal!.
Because of the relatively low alcohol content of non-alcoholic beer, it is legal for minors (youth and young adults under the age of 21) to consume non-alcoholic beer in many states!. Non-alcoholic beer is rarely considered to be a drug of abuse!. A study published by the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth at Georgetown University showed that “about 13 percent of all visitors to 55 alcohol company web sites were under the legal drinking age of 21!.” Among the web sites listed were www!.budweiser!.com and www!.budlight!.com, both of which are “affiliated with St!. Louis beer giant Anheuser Busch Cos!. Inc!.”

Laws preventing the sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages don’t address non-alcoholic beer, and any state wishing to regulate its sale needs to enact separate laws!. Pennsylvania has enacted a uniquely progressive piece of legislation: The Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, Title 18, Chapter 63, state that it is illegal to furnish any “‘nonalcoholic beverage’ (any beverage intended to be marketed or sold as nonalcoholic beer, wine or liquor having some alcohol content but does not contain more than 0!.5% alcohol by volume),” to anyone under the age of 21!. While many stores prohibit the sale of non-alcoholic beer to minors, this is done on a purely voluntary basis alone!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes, it is illegal for me to sell nonalcoholic beer or wine to minor!. It contains a minute amount of alcohol, probably for flavor!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It might depend on the state!. My state cannot sell non alcoholic beer to minors b/c it does have a slight alcohol content, but since so many others have said you can, you might want to check your specific state laws!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, it contains the same amount of alcohol as cough syrup or baking vanilla!.

I would not sell the nonalcoholic beer, the same as I would not sell matches or liters to a minor!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
