Coors Peak Beer Now Certified Gluten-free

Celiac.com 04/01/2015 - Coors Peak beer, a gluten-free copper lager, which hit store shelves in Seattle and Portland, is wasting no time in collecting accolades from gluten-free organizations.

Image: CC--MillerCoorsMillerCoors recently announced that Coors Peak has become the first beer by the big three brewers to meet the certification standards set by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.

To ensure that Coors Peak is gluten-free, MillerCoors has employed exacting production standards, “including production in an entirely separate area to reduce the risk of cross-contamination,” said Channon Quinn, director of industry programs with the Gluten Intolerance Group.

According to David Kroll, MillerCoors vice president of insights and innovations, it took five years of research, testing and refinement to develop Coors Peak, which is is brewed from malted brown rice, hops and caramel sugar to create a distinctive character and brightness.

During that time, the Chicago-based company, which has a large brewing operation in Milwaukee, worked closely with the Gluten Intolerance Group to ensure high gluten-free standards.

Not all GF beers are created equal - so is it any good? Has anyone tried it yet?

I have tried it and so has my beer-drinking, recently diagnosed son. The result? We both REALLY like it. His friend (not gluten intolerant) did a blind taste test with Peak and regular Coors Light and he could not tell the difference. Finally a GOOD GF beer!

Bud has had a gluten free beer for several years. I have drunk Redbridge for the passed number of years and found it a full bodied beer that taste great.

I LOVE Redbridge, isn't it certified GF? I have never had a reaction to it.

I grew up in CO and toured the Coors facility in high school, so I'm naturally rather partial to their beer. I can't wait for it to come to MA! The more beer options, the merrier!

I love Redbridge as well as Omission but cannot wait to try Coors. Want a variety of options as no one will carry more than one GF beer and do not always want a cider. Bring it to RI FAST.
