Hey guys,

Just wanted to post a "good news" story.

I was in Chicago this past weekend, which is just about one of the best places for Celiacs. I was at a festival all weekend, and brought my own gluten-free beer stash (which I got at the slightly sketchy liquor store down the street. they had a better selection last year, but it did the trick). By Sunday, I had caught the "BBQ flu" as we're calling it and could definitely not handle a beer.

 

Anyway, I was introduced to a friend's wife, who was mentioning that she had trouble finding things to eat sometimes and turned out she also had Celiac! After us chatting about that for a bit, I remembered: "Do you want a beer?" I asked. The look of pure joy on her face was priceless. Made me feel better just to make her happy.

 

Has anyone else had one of those moments, when you find out there's a fellow gluten sufferer and have something to share with them, or vice versa.

 

In any case, I thought I'd mention it, cause it was a very nice moment. Next year at this thing we'll be gluten-free beer-ing it up together!

 

Cheers!
