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!!

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
