Gf Beer In Ireland North Or South
0

8 posts in this topic

I haven't had a beer for a year and I have serious withdrawal symptoms. I read in the Irish Coeliac Society that the Sainsburys supermarket chain stocks it but I have not succeeded in finding any. Does anyone know where I could buy gluten-free beer in Ireland north or South?

How deperate are you?

I presume you can get beer shipped to you from the UK just as easily... Google gluten free beer and you'll find Hambleton's and Greene's. Also a very good one from the Fine Ale Club.

I visited my pals on Portsmouth and we had arranged several 12-packs in advance. It was in his cool room when I arrived.

Of course, they should hold a gun on you for the dear price and shipping cost, but it was worth it to me.

I know of a beer that is made locally here in Quebec, Canada. It is called La Messagere, and is brewed by a company called "Les Bieres de la Nouvelle-France." I've been tempted to try it myself, but haven't yet. I don't know if it would be too expensive for you to import it, but here is their website: http://www.lesbieresnouvellefrance.com/.

Good luck!

I've recently been diagnosed and a keen beer drinker ;) but finding my nights out are now difficult due to the lack of beer. Just emailed 'Greens' in the UK to see if they'll send me a list of their ingredients as apparently there's a slight discrepancy between our 'allowed ingredients' and theirs...and then will maybe get them to send me some samples. Let me know if you come up with any other sources in Ireland...

www.Coeliac.ie has a lit of places that stock gluten-free beer in Ireland. I am a Yank with Irish parents so I check on both sides of the Atlantic. Have one for me :)

Hello Brian,

I don't know if you can import beer from the US. We have "Red Bridge", a beer made of SORGHUM by Anheuser-Busch, Inc. It tastes somewhat like dark beer. To me it tastes pretty decent. Hey, beggars are not choosers. This is the only beer that I can have.

Here is a link to their website: www.redbridgebeer.com

Good luck,

Rajawali

    • Previous studies have indicated an increase in celiac disease rates in the United States, but these studies have been done on narrow populations, and did not produce results that are nationally representative. View the full article
    • No worries!!! 

      Yes I've been completely gluten free for over a year now, except when I get glutened from restaurants etc. My 'traces symptoms' have always been major bloating and lots of bathroom breaks but now during my gluten challenge so far I've had some super crazy symptoms... varying from loose stools to severe constipation, bloating 24/7, shortness of breath, rash, joint pains, mood swings, brain fog, headaches and some sharp pains similar to brain freeze but worse... the list goes on, but I'm determined to have a definite result! 
    • Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could handle just about anything thrown my way. That was until this disease. I found myself sobbing uncontrollably, not getting out of bed till late afternoon, hiding in the bedroom from my own family, missing work, not being able to make simple decisions, I was getting at most, 3 hours of sleep a night. I would sit up in bed and literally scream out loud in frustration. I asked my wife several times to bring me to the VA Psyc. ward (which she talked me out of). I had no pleasure or happiness in my life even though I have a very supportive wife of 32 years, and two ideal kids with three grandkids. I had NO reason to feel the way I did, but yet, there I was. And like you mentioned, I too had a "Bucket List" per say.  To top it all off, I had this horrible muscle pain in my legs and arms. Joints a little, but the muscles were in constant pain. One month ago they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. At this point I am not willing to accept that diagnosis.  They started me on Gabapentin and these last two weeks I have actually started feeling less pain in the muscles and my mind is bouncing back too. Although the muscle pain came back a bit Sunday, and has me a little concerned. I keep telling myself it has only been 4 months gluten-free, and that it will take time. But I have to admit, I do not have much patience and I want to start feeling better now.   I ran into an old Army friend a few weeks back, and he had been diagnosed in 2009. He told me everything he went through and other than diarrhea and an inflamed throat, his biggest symptoms were depression/anxiety and brain fog. He said his wife was so worried she sold all of his guns. He would sometimes find himself in the backyard just curled up in the grass wondering when it would end for him. Absolute craziness. When I shared the issues I was having he could relate 100%. He said he hasn't met anyone else that went through the same things as him and it was therapeutic for us both. He told me of some places that were Celiac friendly, and we agreed to let each other know when something new hits the market, or any other good news via text. Back in May I searched for a celiac support group near by, but no luck. I stumbled on this forum and it has helped me tremendously. Stories like yours helped to insure me I was not losing my mind. Which, I might add, I told many VA & civilian Psychiatrists that indeed I was. Thanks for your post, and I hope nothing but the best for you, here forward. Dharwood
    • It is enough for the endoscopy, but not for the blood panel.  It could be worth trying for the blood test, but there is a greater chance of it being negative.  I assume you have been gluten-free for a while.  I admire that you were able to do the gluten challenge!  (I guess I should have pulled up your previous posts, but I was busy getting my kid to school.)
    • The doctor suspected celiac specifically, and he said 3-4 weeks would be enough... I understand that there are multiple recommendations varying from 3 weeks to 3 months but from what I've read I think 4 weeks will most probably not be enough for a positive result in the case that I am celiac.
