Welcome to the forum, Shlomo. In answer to your question... yes, beer contains gluten.

Now if there are any non-gluten beers, I'm uncertain. Some here might know, though.

Here's a previous post about the topic. Hope it helps!

And as you probably already know, it's best to call the manufacturer to make sure their gluten-free status is current.

:D Hi Shlomo, Here's a post that I found about beer:

Gluten Free Honey Lager

The beer features a bright golden color and has an alcohol content of around 5.5%. To make a beer gluten-free, no barley or wheat is used. It includes honey notes and a touch of molasses in the flavor. Only "noble" hops are used for flavor and aroma. Brewed in dedicated fermenters using kosher yeast. We are

in the process of pricing and shipping costs. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us directly, GNSRSES@aol.com. You may contact us directly for shipping 1-845-369-7827.

Ramapo Valley Brewery

http://www.ramapovalleybrewery.com

We are located at 122 Orange Ave. Suffern, NY 10901

I hear it's kind of expensive, but if this is all we can drink as far as beer goes, I guess we'll pay it. I used to be an occasional beer drinker, but now have turned to wine. I can get it everywhere, and this beer can only be ordered (so I understand).

Good Luck, Let me know what you think.

Linda

cider makes a great substitute for beer, especially at a college party where everyone is drinking beer. hornsby's is the only cider i've come across that is NOT gluten-free

There are a few gluten-free beers out there but not mainstream just yet. As a former beer drinker this is the thing I am having the most difficulty adjusting.

-Bard's Beer (http://www.bardsbeer.com) just recently launched a gluten-free beer but distribution is going to take some time.

-As mentioned Ramapo Valley Brewing (http://www.ramapovalleybrewery.com) also has a gluten-free beer. I've bought a few cases and it isn't too bad.

-Bi-Aglut, a beer in Italy which is gluten-free and while over there this past March I stopped into the Pharmacia (where it is sold) and ordered a few bottles. Interestingly, it is made by Heineken Italia, but marketed under the Heinz label. It is incredible and tastes very similiar to mainstream Heineken and uses buckwheat as the main ingredient. Unfortunately it is not availabe in the states. (http://www.biaglut.com/prodotti/Birra/default.aspx)

-In Quebec, the microbrewery La Messag

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
