i am generally very good about watching out for gluten, but every now and then i get side-tracked and can't seem to talk and focus on gluten at the same time.  

 

last week, i was on vacation with my boyfriend.  he had gone up to the bar to get drinks (beer for him, and hard cider for me).  when i joined him, he was in a discussion with the bartender trying to assess if the hard cider on tap would be safe for me.  i have been gluten-free for over 1.5 years now, and am getting better at wording questions that wait-staff can answer, so i asked if the tap was dedicated to cider.  it was.  I was so excited, i grabbed my cider and took a small sip - it was delicious!  as i was swallowing (and my boyfriend called me name), i realized the thing that made it taste so good was that it was a nice hoppy IPA, and not a cider at all.  OH NO!!  

 

fortunately, i only had an unhappy tummy for a day - it could have been so much worse.  

 

another lesson learned - no more draft cider for me if there is a chance i might get distracted :)

I did a similar thing last night! I was having a few ciders and went to the fridge for another one, I didn't know it but someone had put a bud lite in the cider 6pack holder. I didn't even look at the bottle (I was talking) I just popped the top and took a big swig! doh! I do feel pretty bad today, nauseous, tired, stomach cramps-not a good way to START my vacation! LOL

Me too.  In fact this is how I got my last glutening.  I was out on our pontoon with DH and grabbed a bottle out of the cupholder, thinking it was my Angry Orchard when it was hubby's Abita.  Luckily I realized after 1 sip but the damage was already done.

Blood tested 8-11 positive, Biopsy 9-11 negative (long story, most gastro drs. are morons)

gluten-free 7-11, Dairy Free (mostly) 8-13 - Everything but butter.  Can't live life without butter....
 

DS - negative blood test, just diagnosed with ADD and other learning disorders, DNA test positive - high risk

Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....

I imagine the 6th ring of hell being, just that, sipping an ice cold beer and simultaneously  savoring the goodness and then the panic sets in.

I'm sorry to hear that others have suffered, but it is comforting to know that I have company :)

 

I was kind of hoping that I would no longer like the taste of a good IPA, but no such luck.

I'm always afraid of something like this happening. My man is a big beer connoisseur (read: snob), so I do lots of beer smelling (there's this amazing raspberry beer that's sheer torture), but am extremely careful not to touch the stuff (and no post-beer kisses either).

I've had some close calls though: distractedly trying to get caps off regular beer bottles thinking it was my gluten-free, nearly taking a sip of a beer I was just supposed to take a sniff of (It seriously looked like juice! He said "here, try some" and I tentatively took it until he grabbed it back at the last minute. Ack!)

I also rarely get draft cider anymore because of CC fears. And also because I'm getting sick of cider.

 

Hope you recover quickly. It's amazing what a sip will do to us!

That's our world, I'm afraid ....a gluten-filled landmine. <_<

 

Guys, Kareng tells me she has a bright, colorful beer cozy thinger she puts on her  G F beer so she does not sip her hub's beer by mistake.

 

(hmm...not sure what to do about the glasses in a pub, except maybe never, ever put it down?)

 

Maybe you guys can get some of those cozies (I see it is also spelled koozies)

just a thought! cheers...and I hope you recover quickly.

I have had this happen to me. Now, my beer is always in a cover like this. http://www.freakerus...collections/all
Or the foam kinds. My hub doesn't use one unless he is outside. Even if my hub brings me my beer in the cover or sets it in the cover, I double check what is in the coozie before I drink. One time he put his beer in my koozie by accident.

We went to the lake a couple of weeks ago. I didn't bring a koozie. My hub started drinking my beer! Fortunately, we had plenty so I poured that one out.

At bars, the gluten-free beer is usually in a bottle, so I just leave mine in the bottle. So uncouth!

at home, or in my normal surroundings, i am very diligent.  however, put me in a situation where i am distracted and chatting away and all bets are off :)

 

my boyfriend already declared that he will not be buying my cider on tap.  i think he felt pretty badly, even though it was my own doing.

Kiddo...this could very well happen to any of us. I have been known to become distracted by something like the cat or some good lookin cabana boy walks by and forget I am in the mid..........
