Beck's Blue Alcohol-Free Beer is the latest range from the Becks brewery that has been in existence since 1873. Luder Rutenberg, Heinrich Beck and Thomas May founded the brewery, although May left the brewery just two years later and the company became known as Kaiserbrauerei Beck & Co. The brewery is based north of the German city of Bremen. The Beck's logo is a key, which is also the image used in the coat of arms of Bremen. Regular Beck's is known for its pilsner that contains barley from England, and yeast and water from southern Germany. The brewery was the first in Germany to use green bottles and is the fifth best selling brewery in Germany. Beck's is sold in over 100 countries around the world including Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Italy, Australia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine. Beck's Blue, recently renamed from Beck's No Alcohol, has overtaken Kaliber to become the United Kingdom's most popular alcohol free lager. Kaliber, which was launched in 1983 by Guinness, was the first non-alcoholic lager. Since the launch of Kaliber there have been a number of major brewers who have tried to follow suit with their own brands of no alcohol and low alcohol brands, including Carlsberg Low Alcohol, Stella Artois No Alcohol and Cobra 0% Alcohol Free Beer. Beck's Blue is said be the most similar to the regular beer, in that the label is similar and the taste is bitter like the regular beer.
