Yes, indeed it does.
When I was on the wagon last time (7 and half years) I used to occasionally drink a non-alcoholic beer we have here in Europe called Turtal (sp?). It had 0.5%. It tasted just like "real" beer and I enjoyed drinking out of the glass bottel.
However allot of people on here have advised me against drinking non-alcoholic beer and cooking with alcohol and using vinigar. In the end I guess it's a personal choice.
Personally for me it doesn't effect me to consume the above things, but if you think (and be objective!!) it could induce cravings for you stay well away from the non-alcoholic beer.
