Is it ok to drink non Alcoholic beer?

Question:

As Salam wa Aleikum!

There are some beers being sold in the marketplace that says it’s alcohol free.
I have researched and found that they are not really 100% free of alcohol. In the process of making the beer, a small amount of alcohol is still left in it. Some of them has 0.4% others 0.5% of alcohol.

This is an example of beer I’m talking about.

Answer:

Wa Alaykum Salam,

A drink that does not exceed the amount of 0.5% is not haram.
