We’re at the tail end of the infamous Dry January. For those of you living under a rock, Dry January is the annual campaign that encourages people to abstain from alcohol for the month of January. The campaign was first conceived back in 2013, making this a decade long movement! Most participants in Dry January festivities (lack of festivities?) use this time to slow down their drinking, improve their overall health and well-being – or just save some cash.
Lucky for Dry January participants, drinks have evolved in the past decade. We’ve grown out of the traditional non-alcoholic beverages such as soda and juices and moved to NA beers that mimic their boozy counterparts and even the invention of NA spirits! We fully support individuals who choose not to drink, and we support them supporting local brewers and distillers making craft NA products. We hope you make it to February alcohol free!
As part of our super scientific polling series, we asked our audience some NA related questions. Thank you to the 200+ people who participated in this NA poll! The poll results weren’t too surprising. But we did actually underestimate the amount of people who were at least trying NA beer in January, and we did get a chuckle out of the amount of people who were probably confused by NA spirits. But they’re in good company, because we don’t quite understand the NA spirit hype. NA vodka or whisky just doesn’t have the same appeal; and we’ve tried our fair share of NA spirits.
