Hello from JustAnswer.
The most common alcohol urine test is for a metabolite of alcohol, called EtG. The EtG test is very sensitive and can sometimes detect the very small amount of alcohol that is in non-alcoholic beer.
However, by 29 hours after drinking a non-alcoholic beer, you will likely pass. The EtG test can remain positive for up to 80 hours after alcohol ingestion, but will typically be negative within 24-48 hours after drinking a standard beer, so will also usually be negative much more quickly in someone that has a non-alcoholic beer.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
