Celiac.com 12/23/2016 - As gluten-free beers gain in popularity, it's not unusual that more beer schools are offering lessons in the art of gluten-free brewing.
This summer, for example, students at a beer school run by Edmund's Oast pressed into three new classes, including one aimed at drinkers with celiac disease and gluten-intolerance. Taught in summer 2016, Oast's class, "Gluten-be-Gone!" covers gluten-free beers and other brewed options for celiac sufferers.
In addition to making gluten-free beers from ingredients rice, sorghum, and honey, brewers have experimented with various enzyme treatments, and other processes, to remove gluten from beer.
"It's cool to offer up a beer school class that appeals to folks that can't really attend any of the other ones," Charleston Beer Exchange manager Brandon Plyler says. The class costs $45.
