Athletic Brewing is offering consumers of drinking age a free non-alcoholic beer on Thursday.

The offer is part of what the company calls "Ask For Athletic Day" as part of American Craft Beer Week.

The popularity of non-alcoholic beverages has grown in recent years, according to data firm NIQ, which reported a 32.6% increase in boozeless beer sales between January and April 2024 alone.

Interest in the category appears to remain strong, as 41% of people polled by advertising agency NC Solutions said they planned to try to drink less this year.

"A growing number of Americans are moderating how much alcohol they consume, but that doesn't mean they should have to skip the party," Andrew Katz, Chief Marketing Officer of Athletic Brewing Company said in the press release announcing the promotion.
