It doesn't really work that way, if one has a gluten problem, one needs to avoid it all together.

However, I have just found a great gluten-free beer company. Have you tried New Planet? It really tastes like real beer. They are award wining and have three flavors.

I like New Planet, too. They are only in a few states right now - the ones around Colorado where it is made. They are working on the permits needed to sell in more states.

There is really no difference between low gluten & lots of gluten... If you're going to poison yourself it really doesn't matter how much poison you take! BevMo has some great gluten free beers, I think my favorite so far is Red Sail.

Gotta vote against the New Planet. I wanted to like it, really I did. Unfortunately it's costs more than Spaten, and it's about on the same level as gluten free "bread".

Have you tried New Planets Pale Ale? Hubby thinks that one taste the best out of their flavors. Close to real thing. We do agree about price though :(

I do have to admit that when someone said on the board a long time ago that Bud Light was low enough to not effect us I did try one. Boy did it taste good as I was a big fan of beer prediagnosis and the sorghum beers to me taste nasty. Result was not pretty. I might as well have had a piece of cake or some phyllo. Just not worth it.
You have to keep in mind that celiac is autoimmune and it takes very, very little gluten to start the autoimmune action.
As someone else mentioned I now do wine mixed with soda when I want something refreshing on a hot day.

You're in the right place. Should have just explained better. We have people who have doctors, dieticians & mother-in-laws tell them "a little won't hurt them". :o

You should probably stay gluten-full until you get your blood tested. Celiac is genetic.

With a kid with Celiac, you will probably be eating gluten light or gluten free at home. Just makes it easier.

I had one of the tests(not sure what one I am getting a physical in a month and will find out which one) and it was negative for any gluten issue. once I figure out how to use this website I will setup a signature. I can not find the CP.......I have about 20,000 posts on the "Auto forums" so I am sure I will figure this one out......thx again for the help

You have found one of the best sites there is for info. Before you go gluten light please do get at least a celiac panel done. All first degree relatives of someone diagnosed is advised to do so even if they don't seem to have the typical celiac symptoms. Celiac is genetic and it is common for there to be more than one in a family and with the different presentations that are found with celiac even if you don't have tummy troubles it needs to be ruled out.

Yep AB makes Red Bridge. Its actually really good. Gluten Free made from sorghum.
I live in STL (home of AB) and can get it and almost in grocery store.

There is another called New Grist that is really good also, but harder to find for me.
Its only in a handfull of upscale eating places that I know of around me.
Also, Mike's Hard Lemonade is claiming gluten-free now. Not sure but I drank one the other day when they changed the label
and didn't feel sick at all.
And Woodchuck cider is gluten-free.

Just some other options.

I agree about Redbridge! I drink it all the time, and they have it at our new Twins Stadium here in Minnesota! I was so excited, I ordered two as they are only at a few locations around the stadium. I had been drinking them out of the bottle the whole time, and at the game they poured them into a cup. They tasted like real beer!! I actually had three of the people I was with taste it as I was positive I got real beer. Lol...maybe for people who don't like it, they should pour it into a glass!...or maybe after two years of gluten-free my taste buds are playing tricks on me.
Woodchuck is always yummy :)

Diagnosed with Celiac Disease November 2009
2011:
Anemia is gone for the first time in my life, Yay!
Teeth are cleaner according to my dentist (interesting, eh???)
Eyesight has improved for the first time in my life (another interesting thing!)

**My advice to the newly diagnosed** HANG IN THERE!! It gets better and is so worth the seemly long road to getting better. Just be happy you can make yourself healthy with a diet change, and not have to take pills for the rest of your life. :D
