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:

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.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Thanks Cristiana. It was Mistyx7 and night driving. Migraine type is very personal but does not appear to be closely connected to celiac or my peculiar scotomas. If you think going gluten-free has improved it that deserves a separate topic!
    • Burning Sensation
      The last post was from 2011.   if you can eat a regular pizza crust with no issue, then gluten isn't your problem.  You might want to look for something else.  The amount of gluten in a beer or fryer cc is very very small compared to eating a pizza crust.   I am assuming you do not have Celiac disease.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
