    Celiac.com 03/15/2018 - How many times have you discovered a great gluten-free beer, only to find out it’s not available where you live? Gluten-free beer is enjoying tremendous growth in terms of both brewing ingredients and strategies, and in terms of the types of beer being produced.

    There are literally dozens of gluten-free beers being brewed today that did not exist a few years ago. Still, one of the more common complaints has to do with the general lack of availability. Even locally available products might only appear in a few stores.

    Edinburgh’s Bellfield Brewery is about to change all of that, when their Bellfield IPA, and their Bohemian Pilsner become available at 54 Morrisons stores across the UK, and online. Run by a team that includes two guys with celiac disease, Bellfield started in 2015 with sole goal of making exceptional beers that just happen to be gluten-free. 

    The company has already won several major awards for its modern, gluten-free beers; not as gluten-free, but in straight up head to head competition with traditional beers. In the last year, Bellfield has won two awards in the World Beer Awards and their IPA has been consistently ranked among top ten IPAs in the UK. 

    Brewer and business development manager, Kieran Middleton, says the deal with Morrisons in England, bring Bellfield’s beers to customers, far from Edinburgh. “As a young company we are so proud to have this opportunity to supply one of the UK’s leading retailers. We set out to create “Craft Beer For All” great tasting beers, that everyone can enjoy,” he said.

    The deal will give Bellfield wide UK coverage with all the major distributors and wholesalers, including Bidfood, Matthew Clark, Pigs Ear, Amathus, Inverarity Morton, Pivovar and a number of leading online beer shops.

    Celiac.com 02/03/2011 - Okay, so Canadians take their beer seriously. Beer being one of the few things that might stoke the passions of some Canadians almost as much as, say, hockey.
    So, proposed health regulations that would require beer labels to include a warning that beer is made with barley or wheat have the Canadian beer industry in a froth.
    Major players in the Canadian brewing industry are gearing up opposition over the proposed health regulations that would require just such labels, warning consumers that beer contains barley or wheat; something Canadian brewers liken to warning that ketchup contains tomatoes.
    The proposed rules are...

    Celiac.com 11/04/2011 - For many folks, fall means changing leaves, crisp weather, football, and beer. Or just crisp weather and beer. Fortunately, for those with gluten sensitivities, the explosion of diagnoses for celiac disease and gluten-intolerance has given rise to an explosion of gluten-free products, including a number of gluten-free beers.
    "People are becoming more knowledgeable of the symptoms in which gluten can cause on one's health," said New Planet Beer Marketing Director Danielle Quatrochi, "so people are being diagnosed sooner and more often than before. There's also been a lot of press around the benefits of a gluten-free diet, opening...

    Celiac.com 07/15/2016 - Germans are particular about their beer. Since the 14th century, they have had a beer purity law, called Reinheitsgebot. That law says that beer must be made with wheat or barley, if it is to be called beer.
    That means that many gluten-free beers brewed without wheat or barley cannot be considered beer in Germany. Now, German brewers are using special "ultra-low" gluten Australian barley to brew the first gluten-free beer that conforms to the strict requirements of the law.
    The barley is called "Kebari" barley, and was developed by Csiro, an Australian government scientific research agency, which used conventional breeding...

    Celiac.com 04/15/2017 - Raw materials used by breweries include barley. A characteristic feature of this grain is the presence of gluten proteins which also includes hordein. This group of proteins are the trigger of celiac disease symptoms [Darewicz, Dziuba, Jaszczak: "Celiakia – aspekty molekularne, technologiczne, dietetyczne." PrzemysÅ‚ Spożywczy, styczeÅ„, 2011] . This issue raises the need to seek new methods of brewing that allow for the elimination of gluten proteins from the beer [swora E., Stankowiak-Kulpa H., Mazur M. 2009. Dieta bezglutenowa w chorobie trzewnej. Nowiny Lekarskie 78, 5-6, 324-329]. The biggest problem for coeliac patients is to ide...
