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.

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
