Hello forum,

 

Can anyone reccomend any good gluten-free beers. The ones I've tried so far have been horrible.

 

Thanks

Anheuser-Busch makes a sorghom beer called Redbridge that my wife didn't think was to bad. Then she tried the Bards and likes that even better. Click on the Bards ad on this forum and see if they sell any locally. We've been working with a local store to stock it for her.

Green's is pretty good - like a well done home brew.

 

Beware of gluten-free beers started form barley like Daura, they still get people.

Have you heard of this? They say it is the best

 

1. Brunehaut Bio Blonde
Style: Belgian Tripel
City: Brunehaut, Belgium
ABV: 5%
Key Ingredients: Barley (with gluten-extracted)
% Like Beer: 100%
For Fans Of: Maredsous 8
The verdict: Not just a great gluten-free beer but a great beer, Brunehaut’s Blonde is a well-balanced Tripel and a wonderful step forward in the world of gluten-free beer. Starting with barley and extracting gluten from it seems to be the best way to go.

 

They go from worst to best in this list

yah.  no.  i'm not touching anything with barley in it.  they can say it's extracted or whatever - it's still barley and barley hates me!  lolz

 

i tend to go with things i can actually find out here in the woods.  i'm currently pulling major strings to get me a supply of bards, because hardly anybody carries it unless you go clear to knoxville (which i did yesterday and they were OUT lolz - my only hope is my guy bought ALL of it and it's waiting for me at my local shop - go big or go home....)  anyways, that's why i got the new grist.  ingredients listed as such:

 

"made ONLY with sorghum and rice extract, yeast, water and hops"  <no oxford comma so i'm assuming the water and hops were together)  ;)

I def understand that!! I also read where they are under strict rules with the 20 PPM of Gluten. But yea who would attempt that. But not all were the ones made with Barley. I actually had a Apple beer not to long ago and it was pretty good. Altho my daughter told me "be careful mom ,with all that apple" lol So I only had one. :) It was good tho ..

The barley-extracted beers cause symptoms in many people and are best avoided.

 

"For example,  Omission, is made in Portland. It’s light in body, golden-colored and clean tasting with a bit of hops coming through. With the slogan “It isn’t just what we took out, it’s what we left in,” this lager is brewed with malted barley so is technically not gluten-free. The brewer says on its website that it “developed a proprietary process to remove the gluten.” However, it says it is not allowed to say “gluten-free” outside of Oregon because of federal regulations. The beer is tested for gluten using a somewhat controversial “R5 Competitive ELISA test” – the acronym meaning Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay. (Celiaccentral.org offers extensive medical explanations on the subject

 

 Colorado’s New Planet Beer Co. offers pale, amber, blonde, raspberry and Belgian ales. The blonde - made from sorghum and corn extract – includes orange peel that yields a slight tartness. ( FWIW, I thought this one was very good, but I do not drink much beer. The hubs  really liked it,

 

although he thinks GREEN"S is better.)

 

 

- Delaware’s Dogfish Head – known for its high-alcohol brews – started making T’weason’ale last year.

 

- Vermont’s The Alchemist – where the brewer’s wife was diagnosed with celiac disease 

- Wisconsin’s Sprecher Brewery makes a Shakparo using African grains.

- Anheuser-Busch makes Redbridge, made from sorghum.

Portland’s Harvester Brewing says it is a dedicated gluten-free brewery and is producing a handful of ales.

Harvester is completely gluten free (they've been certified, I think) and by far the tastiest gluten free beer option.  I visited there when I was in Portland last year.  They use certified gluten free oats in some of the beers, so that's something to be aware of for people who have oat issues.  Unfortunately, they're pretty new, so their beer is only available in Oregon and sometimes in Washington - they offer shipping to many states, too, but that gets pricey.

 

Of the widely available gluten free beers, New Planet and Green's are the best.  The one from Alchemist is really good, too - but I've only seen it in the northeast.  Reminded me a lot of Blue Moon.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
