I am surprised to hear that they cannot call this a gluten-free beer "...to comply with Health Canada's labelling rules that say anything called a beer must contain at least some barley or wheat." Messagère and Messagère Red Ale, both made in Quebec are labelled as gluten-free beers. Did Quebec separate from Canada already?

'New Grist' was fantastic,I don't remember where its from but I have found it in better LCBO's. I did not like the Messagère brand. It just tasted like soy sauce, that was carbonated. I know, it sounds odd, but I made other people try it, in case my taste buds were off.(The face my husband made was just hilarious but telling) Also it was 4 bucks more for a 6-pack than the New Grist.

On that note, considering all the varying flavours of beer/ale/lagers, not really a surprise that in trying 2 different gluten free 'beers' that I didn't like one of them :-)So try for yourself, you might love either.

I always liked Strongbow, but you have to be into the cider type flavour.

I also tried the New Grist, and was very impressed by it. It actually tasted like beer! Even though it can't be called it. Still tasted awesome. I'm sad summer is almost over now that I've found a "beer" I can enjoy at BBQs and outings!

most country's labeling laws don't allow gluten free beers to be labeled as beer because it doesn't contain barley. Not just Canada.

I haven't tried the Gluten Free that's made in Ontario, I haven't seen any anywhere. My local LCBO stocks New Grist, which isn't bad really. I prefer wine or spirits now though.

New Grist is really good, it's the one I always buy. Nicklebrook's Gluten-free tastes a lot like real beer and I'd buy that one more often except that I don't care for the tallboy can and the fact that you have to buy them individually.
