    Celiac.com 03/08/2016 - A tiny new brewery, the 3,000-square-foot, totally gluten-free, Holidaily Brewing Company is now open in Golden, Colorado, home to beer industry giant Coors.

    Holidaily Gluten-free BreweryHolidaily will brew all of its beers without barley or wheat, free from gluten and the component proteins that can adversely affect people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

    Holidaily joins a handful of other small Colorado breweries producing gluten-free beers, including New Planet Beer in Boulder and Great Frontier Brewing Co. in Lakewood. And, several major brewers make gluten-free beers, including Anheuser-Busch, maker of gluten-free Redbridge Ale, and Widmer Brothers Brewing, makers of gluten-free Omission beer.

    However, Holidaily is Colorado's only dedicated, gluten-free brewing facility, and just the the 5th in the United States. That means there is no gluten ingredients anywhere on the premises, so there is no chance of cross-contamination.

    Operations at Holidaily are overseen by head brewer Wayne Burns, who was quoted in Craftbeer.com saying: "The key to the deliciousness of our beer is high quality ingredients and knowledgeable employees. We use the finest locally sourced, malted, gluten-free grains as the base for our beers."

    In a statement on the website, owner Karen Hertz says that Holidaily is out not just to sell beer, but to actually improve "the lives of people who have likely been sick with a wide range of symptoms. We are on a mission to give people a good, gluten-free beer drinking experience. It's really about so much more than beer."

    Currently, Holidaily beers include Favorite Blonde Ale, which has an A.B.V. of 5%, and is made with American Ale Yeast, Bravo, Cascade, Centennial Hops, and Pale Millet, Pale Buckwheat and Munich Millet supplied locally by Grouse Malting and Roasting in Wellington, Colorado.

    In their taproom, Holidaily also offers two other specialty craft brews, Riva Stout A.B.V 6.75%, and Fat Randy's IPA, A.B.V 7%. Holidaily Brewing Co.'s brewery and tasting room are located in Golden, Co. at 801 Brickyard Circle.

    People need to be aware that not all beers labeled as gluten-free are truly gluten-free. For example Omission beer, listed in this article, is made with gluten ingredients but then supposedly the gluten is removed but it's very likely a good amount of gluten remains. For Celiacs, this is obviously not good. This is a gluten-reduced beer, NOT a gluten-free beer.

    Omission is tested to be sure it is gluten-free.

    Not true. Omission is made with wheat and barley ingredients, but is filtered to remove gluten, contains under 20 ppm gluten. Omission routinely tests their products, and they routinely test under they 20ppm gluten allowed by the FDA. They cannot label Omission "Gluten-Free," due to FDA restrictions, but it does meet FDA standards in terms of gluten content.
