Local councils say that weaker drinks such as beers, spirits, ciders and wines can be used to deal with drink-related health problems.
The Local Government Association has requested ministers to include wines and ciders in the tax breaks on low-strength 2.8% beers.
Industry bodies have welcomed the call.
The LGA has the task of caring for public health and it represents 370 councils in Wales and England.
It is estimated that the NHS uses 3.5bn euro on a yearly basis to deal with excessive consumption.
The LGA licensing spokesman, Tony Page, said that people will be able to live healthier lives if the availability of zero alcohol and weaker strength drinks is increased. People will be able to take charge of their drinking levels and deal with the harm resulting from excessive drink.
“With a new generation of non-drinkers on the rise, there is a growing demand for greater choice in alcohol-free and weaker drinks, with several ‘dry bars’ opening up across the country.
“Tax breaks for beer have helped fuel a rise in low-strength products. This should now be extended to cider, wine and spirits.”
He also added that people were changing their drinking habits and that brewers would better capitalize on this if they produced a wide range of options.
The Office of National Statistics has figures showing that violent crime can be linked to excessive alcohol consumption.
Over half of the violent scenes in Wales and England involved a drunken perpetrator.
New guidelines concerning alcohol consumption were released earlier this year in which they said there was nothing like safe level of drinking.
Chief medical officers in UK said that their research had indicated that any amount of alcohol has the potential of causing a rise in the risk of cancer.
The men and women who drink are advised not to take more than 14 alcohol units per week. This is equivalent to 6 beer pints or 7 wine glasses. The pregnant women are advised not to drink at all.
