The only thing I can find locally is Moosehead "beer" which is actually hard cider with carbonation?



The liquor store told me to call them with the kind I want & they will see if they can get it for us. So for you beer lovers which one in your opinion comes closest to tasting like Coors light or Michelob light?

Summer 2013 We both have added back a little soy which is near unavoidable & we are doing okay with that small amount.

New Planet Tread Lightly.

I've tried that one and Redbridge. I prefer the New Planet a bit but it's more expensive (4pk - $8).

The ciders are growing on me... granny smith Woodchuck - yum!

Thanks Christine! The hubs likes beer --- I'm not a big fan. We both know he will not like the cider stuff. IH said her hubs likes the New Planet too.

The Redbridge was not a big hit in our house.
He said Yuck, this tastes like Bud light. Meaning he does not like it. :lol:

He brews his own, but

He likes:

Bards
Green's
New Planet
New Grist
Woodchuck (aka Moosehead? :lol: good one, squirmy)
Strongbow

here, sweets...check this out!
It's a list of gluten-free brews and reviews.

I have to say it: Back in the day, I didn't consider Coors Light to taste anything at all like REAL beer.

I was disguising it, but

but to "each his own", I guess? :)

It is indeed possible! My cuz and his wife did it too.
We had to replace some of the brewing equipment, obviously (like copper wiring) but yup, we did it! Pretty good too.

PM me if you want me to have him tell you what he did.

Why am I not surprised that the scientist brews his own?Posted Image

Thanks for the link. I will check them out tomorrow. Today is shot. I have no mind for decisions this evening. Already made too many of those today.

I doubt I'm the only one interested. B) Maybe you could share it for the board?

Coors Light is panther piss. Anyone who thinks it is beer is obviously suffering from neurological issues--brain fog--caused by gluten.

:lol: I'll second that. See-through beer is for wussies. I really miss a good pint of Guinness. Not the wretched bottled stuff either. A properly poured nitrogen tap pint from a fresh keg. The Green's Endeavor dubbel is the closest I can come now.

Amen to that, sister!
I think you will understand how much I am loved when I tell you hubs gave up his beloved Guinness voluntarily when he went gluten-free with me. My big Irish guy--his life- blood!! :)

There is nothing like having one in a pub in Ireland. Even I drank a half pint with my lunch every day.

It took F O R E V E R for that head to die down. :lol: It is a 20 minute delay from asking for it and getting it to your lips. You chat ....and wait.

When you are halfway down the pint, you order the next one because it will take a while for it to arrive. :lol:

No one gets impatient waiting for it, because they know it will be the best sip they have ever had. Hubs calls it "mother's milk".

I'll ask him to put his notes for the ale together and we'll post it.

I am surprised no one has done it on here already--some directions are on the internet, I think?
