Hello,

RamapoValleybrewery.com. They have it and used to ship it. I haven't tried it. Maybe you can call them.

I have tried Bards Beer which I bought in a Whole Foods in Manhattan. Unfortunatly, they haven't had a shipment in awhile and they may have gone out of business. I emailed them and have not received a response.

Also, its not beer but many hard ciders are gluten-free.

Good luck,

Kevin

I know that Bards Tale beer is out of stock for a little while. They had a bad batch (the beer bottles would explode in people's fridges).

I'm lucky cause I am Canadian and every time my family comes to visit, they bring me a case of "La Messagere" beer. It is gluten free and tastes great! Also, smirnoff Ice vodka drinks in Canada are gluten free. It isn't a malted drink like the US version.

I actually drink mostly red wine. If I don't feel like have such a hard drink, I'll make a sangria out of it.

Here's a link with some info about gluten-free beer:

http://www.sillyyak.com.au/beer/links.html

They just started selling Ramapo Valley beer at my local Beverages and More...which is pretty awesome! It's the first time I've been able to buy gluten-free beer in San Diego without having to order it online. I'm actually pretty impressed too...all the BevMo employees suddenly seem to know quite a bit about celiac disease (the last time I went there and asked for Ramapo Valley the guy was like "gluten free beer!" and he proceeded to give me an entire explanation of what celiac disease is. I was like "yeah I have that - that's why I'm buying this beer" lol). I guess they've been selling a lot of it. :)

I'd kill for a gluten-free beer. I miss beer as much as I miss bread.

It figures,

I move out of San Diego and now you guys get the gluten-free beer.

One would think that someone would get the hint here in Sin City...

Sigh...

Oh well, I will have to come visit San Diego and take a few cases home with me...

Where in SD did you get it Meredith?

new grist is awesome. i believe that on the website it will tell you which liquor stores in your area carry it. If you have a Binnys - they have it. but some of our smaller liquor stores here in chicago have it too. Lakefront Brewery makes it.

I never was a beer drinker even before having to go gluten-free (more of a vodka person myself.....) but here in Canada, celiacs are lucky. There are select LCBO's (our liquor store up here) that sell gluten-free beer, the french one, I can't remember the name of it, but everyone raves about it......

If I ever go down to the States for a celiac conference or anything, I will make sure I bring a good supply to any fellow celiac.com'ers who go also!!!!

I can remember years ago going down with hubby (just boyfriend at the time) to Cincinnati to see the Reds and Pirates play. This was pre-gluten-free diet. I forgot all my Caesar stuff at home. I went into a supermarket and asked them where their clamato juice, tabasco sauce and worsteshire sauce was. They looked at me like I had two heads. I explained that it was for a drink we enjoy up here in Canada. They proceeded to look at me like I had three heads then....... :lol:

Hahaha....they do sell it now but It's not very popular. They like their bloddy mary's here. Made with plain tomato juice.

I'm from NH (Portsmouth) and the last time I bought gluten-free beer it was Bard's Tale and I got it in Woodstock, NH at the general store. But then they had the batch with the exploding bottles.. I just checked their website and it looks like Vermont is still the closest to us. I haven't found anyone that carries Ramapo either but I put in a request at a place in Portsmouth called Philbrick's. It's the closest we have to Whole Foods here (which I don't think can sell alcohol in Mass anyway, right?).

If I hear anything, I'll let you know. B

Whole Foods is supposed to start selling gluten-free beer in a month or so. They wouldn't give me any more information than that because the deal isn't quite done.

I had my first beer in over 5 years this past week while I was visiting NYC. Every time I go to any Whole Foods location, I check for gluten-free beer for the slight chance that they may have it. Well, the Manhattan Whole Foods on 7th (near 25th?) had 2 6-packs of Ramapo's passover honey ale (their gluten-free beer). The beer was surprisingly good and I am wondering where I can find it in MA now. I'll be sure to repost if I find it around here.

By the way, that rice beer in the tall silver cans is Sapporo and they will not say that it is safe for gluten-free because it is brewed in non-dedicated facilities.

Take care.

I got it at the Bevmo in Encinitas. I had read an article on the Gluten Free in SD website that said Ramapo Valley was now being sold in San Diego. I couldn't believe it when I walked into Bevmo and they actually had it!!!!! :D:D:D (and p.s. it makes our $7 loaves of bread look really cheap in comparison - but i guess it's still better than having to pay for shipping and such :) )

So have we ascertained that no one ships gluten-free beer? Our Whole Foods won't carry it I'm sure, as I live in PA with the dumbest liquor laws on the books!! I might have to make a road trip to NYC!!

No I'm pretty sure Ramapo Valley will ship it to you.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • 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
