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....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:
