I was going to post what I found on Omissions web site about their mission being to brew a gluten-free beer and mission accomplished etc etc...but see that others have already done so.
What I'm now going to say is different but probably even more likely to cause conflict. Please just read the whole thing first.
An acquaintance was first dx 18 years ago with celiac disease. His case was much more severe, wasting, than mine, and practically the instant he went gluten-free, his symptoms went away. But then a few years ago, it was a hot day and someone offered him a craft beer and he drank it. Nothing he said. No reaction. So, he started drinking nice craft beers. Not gluten-free-marketed beers. But craft beers. But, he wanted to see if any markers showed up. (Again, please read the whole thing.) So he stopped. He got the gliadin antibody tests - not diagnostic. He was clear (AGAIN. Please keep reading, I know I know.) So he did the craft beer challenge and started drinking it again and a few months later got the ABA IgA or IgG test. Nothing. He was clear. (....hope you are reading and not jumping to comment!)
So now, my commentary. Setting aside for the moment that tests available for gluten in foodstuffs are bad, we must I guess, test our bodies. Gliadin is a broken down component of wheat and would not therefore measure hordein, the broken down component of barley. So, to my way of thinking, the test he had done was not really useful, right? My understanding is that aside from the ABA IgG and ABA IgA tests, there are three other components of the Celiac panel, but none of them test for anything but gliadin or reaction to gliadin. Not hordein. Not seculin (?).
Moving on, I got on the Internet and have discovered that there are indeed some beers without being marketed as gluten-free that are below 20PPM in gluten. I had no idea! I do not know about craft beers.
My symptoms are milder than my acquaintance's, and yet I generally do not like to gamble with anything that might contain gluten, because I am aware of the Celiac iceberg. But sometimes it is tempting. Is there any way to have an open discussion on this without going automatically to "do not drink any beer period?"
Just testing the board waters.
