Good Gluten Free Beer!

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease six years ago, I didn’t know when I’d be able to enjoy beer again since I couldn’t have any wheat barley, or rye. I always enjoyed drinking beer and was not impressed with the limited options for gluten free beer. Since 2006, more people have been following a gluten free diet and it has almost become a fad. The recent popularity has resulted in more gluten free beer options.

New Planet Gluten Free BeerI have to mention that I’ve always been a fan of ales, stouts, and darker beers. I initially tried Bards, New Grist, and Red Bridge but I wasn’t super impressed with any of them. They were okay but not my style.

Recently I’ve found a renewed fondness for beer. New Planet is my go to everyday sipping brew. Their Tread Lightly Ale reminds me of Blue Moon and their Off the Grid IPA is impressively bitter. Along with the Raspberry ale, they have a great variety of gluten free beer.

Green's Gluten Free BeerWhen I really want to treat myself, I splurge on a Green’s Belgian Gluten Free bomber. They’re $6.49 each, and worth every cent. The Green’s Endeavour Dubbel is dark brown and rich with sugary toffee flavors and a thick head. Green’s Discovery Amber Ale is smooth and complex with some cherry flavors woven with decent bitterness. The Green’s Quest Trippel Blonde Ale has more bite with citrus, tart apple, and some strawberry notes on the finish.

Next time you see these options, give them a try. They’ll help you realize there are some great options for gluten free beer drinkers.
