What are the closest beverages that taste like beer, but are not?

In my quest to find the best non-beer alternatives with a similar flavor, I discovered a variety of beverages that come surprisingly close. Non-alcoholic beers certainly top the list, offering the same grainy, hoppy taste without the alcohol. Kombucha, especially the hop-infused variants, provide a unique tangy brew that somewhat mimics the bitter aspect of beer. Certain types of root beer and ginger beer also have a comparable taste, with their sweet and spicy blend. Finally, malt beverages, like Malta, can be a good option for those craving the deep, roasted flavors found in darker beers.
