Estrella Damm Daura

Kudos to this brewery for doing what makes sense - use barley to develop beer and simply take the gluten out. The best beer available to celiacs because it's real beer. The price is a bit outrageous but worth it.

I wouldn't touch it. I would imagine the CC that gets us from shared lines measures out at that low of a level also. It's nice to know they at least tell you about the barley though.

They remove the gluten to below 6 ppm.

Is it any good, Josh? Redbridge was not to my taste at all.

I think it's great. It's too expensive but wonderful. Not as hoppy or heavy as Redbridge. It's real beer that's why it's great. It's similar to drinking a Bud Light. Again, I wish Bud and Corona would officially release their gluten numbers because I'm quite sure they'd be well under 20 ppm too.

Heh. We have a different idea of good beer! Glad you found something you like.

I think you saved me some money trying Estrella. I find Redbridge far too light with no real body and Budweiser is not to my taste for the same reason. About the lightest beer I used to drink was Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale. :lol: I'm sure that's well above 20 ppm gluten. I need to track down that Green's gluten-free stout one of these days.

Have you tried New Grist or Bards if available? Still sweet but a fuller flavor.

I did not care for the New Grist beer. Found it too light, very insubstantial. The Redbridge is ok, but not a Nutbrown Ale, by any means! Actually, I find that I seem to be losing my taste for beer lately. Sigh. Probably a good thing, in the long run.

I would pay lots of money for a decent gluten-free stout!! I miss my Guinness...I've tried Green's beers, and for me they're waaaay too sweet. Beer isn't supposed to taste like candy...unless you're eating beer candy, I guess. Not my cup of tea. My fave gluten-free beer right now is St. Peter's Sorghum ale, really hoppy and light and not sweet. I"m with you, Skylark, I was a Sam Adams/Newcastle/Guinness/dunkelweiss drinker before the celiac diagnosis. I'm desperate enough that I may try to make my own gluten-free stout this fall!!

Me too. I was a guiness drinker before, or Tetleys, or Boddingtons.

If you havent tried Estrella Damm Daura.

I would suggest you try it.

It is not dark, but it is FLAVORFUL.

My favorites before Daura, were St Peters (not fizzy enough), and Greens Double (the dark one) (A little sweet, and strong for my taste)

My new favorite BY FAR is the DAURA.

Reminds me of..... Stella Artois, Tuborg, Carlsberg, to give yo an idea.

Try it you have nothing to lose.

Thanks for the tip on Daura.. I'm gonna try to find it.

My favorite gluten-free beers are:

1. St Peters - by far this is the best I've had - tastes like Sams to me I think.. but is 3 times as expensive as all the others

2. Bards - 2nd best - very good

3. Sprechers Shakparo - very similar to Bards. Sprechers also makes another one called Mbege but it's only avail a couple times per year so I haven't got to taste it yet

4. redbridge - is okay..

**I've also tried New Grist & all flavors of greens but I don't like those.

We'll if anyone thinks that you won't get sick on less than 6PPM gluten, then refer to my other post, I got sick on this beer, and I strongly urge anyone really gluten sensitive to avoid this beer Daura, it's from Spain I defy anyone to find any true labeling on this beer, and do you really trust a beer with no labeling!!!!!

What you have to lose is all the contents of your intestinal tract, be careful!!

DON'T DRINK IT.

I did, tonight, and was vomiting 30 minutes later with severe stomach pain (my usual first day reaction to being glutened; the week of muscle pain, migraines and neurological shakiness will start tomorrow). I was glutened by it.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
