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.

They remove the gluten to below 6 ppm.

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

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.

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.

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

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!!!!!

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.
