In Topic: Gluten Free Beer/ale

29 January 2015 - 07:04 PM

This topic is near and dear to my heart. Pre-diagnosis, I was a real "beer snob". Now I find that Red Bridge is the only safe beer available where I live. It is in the grocery store and my neighborhood bar (our version of Cheers) keeps it for me. I love being able to go in and have a beer, even if it is not as good as what I used to drink. Part of being gluten free is accepting that some things are just not going to be what you remember. I have been gluten-free for 7 years now, so I really don't remember what a lot of stuff tasted like. Give it time.

I just checked at my grocery store, and the Kroger brand is also OK. It is not marked gluten free, but a quick read of the ingredients made it sound safe.

I just called the company and spoke to a customer service supervisor. She said the change was made in July. 2014. I guess the new stuff just got to my store. I told her about the thousands of people who could no longer use their product. No reason for the change that she could find. Maybe if a whole lot us us complain they will change it back. She did say they log the comments and turn them in to (somebody?) weekly.

I plan to contact the company and let them know how many customers they have lost. In the South we have a saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"


In Topic: Gluten-Free Protein Sources

I understand your concern with food costs. Meat prices have gone up tremendously. Try cheaper cuts and cook them for a long time. If plain meat bothers you, look for other sources, such as the ones you and others have mentioned. Ask your GI  doctor about the problems with meat. That doesn't sound like Celiac. It may be something unconnected.
