Coors Peak Beer Now Certified Gluten-free

Celiac.com 04/01/2015 - Coors Peak beer, a gluten-free copper lager, which hit store shelves in Seattle and Portland, is wasting no time in collecting accolades from gluten-free organizations.

Image: CC--MillerCoorsMillerCoors recently announced that Coors Peak has become the first beer by the big three brewers to meet the certification standards set by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.

To ensure that Coors Peak is gluten-free, MillerCoors has employed exacting production standards, “including production in an entirely separate area to reduce the risk of cross-contamination,” said Channon Quinn, director of industry programs with the Gluten Intolerance Group.

According to David Kroll, MillerCoors vice president of insights and innovations, it took five years of research, testing and refinement to develop Coors Peak, which is is brewed from malted brown rice, hops and caramel sugar to create a distinctive character and brightness.

During that time, the Chicago-based company, which has a large brewing operation in Milwaukee, worked closely with the Gluten Intolerance Group to ensure high gluten-free standards.

Not all GF beers are created equal - so is it any good? Has anyone tried it yet?

I have tried it and so has my beer-drinking, recently diagnosed son. The result? We both REALLY like it. His friend (not gluten intolerant) did a blind taste test with Peak and regular Coors Light and he could not tell the difference. Finally a GOOD GF beer!

Bud has had a gluten free beer for several years. I have drunk Redbridge for the passed number of years and found it a full bodied beer that taste great.

I LOVE Redbridge, isn't it certified GF? I have never had a reaction to it.

I grew up in CO and toured the Coors facility in high school, so I'm naturally rather partial to their beer. I can't wait for it to come to MA! The more beer options, the merrier!

I love Redbridge as well as Omission but cannot wait to try Coors. Want a variety of options as no one will carry more than one GF beer and do not always want a cider. Bring it to RI FAST.

Has anyone ever flown with a toaster in your luggage? I have to travel for work in a couple weeks. Staff (me) are being told we have to eat at the meals provided. They have assured me that the hotel will have gluten-free meals for me. I saw the menu for breakfast, and I can't imagine i...

No corn or grains of any kind in their items that I have found. I get them at my local Wegmans and don't know if they are available where you are. Chebe mixes are also grain free. I used them a lot when first diagnosed. They are also tapioca based.

Shar is one of the leading gluten free manufactures, the company is from Europe and if I recall has even stricter gluten testing guidelines then the US. The company primarily uses corn, soy and starches in the goods so I personally can not try them or vouch for them (allergic). I know many other...

That company is good as far as being gluten free goes however they use a lot of soy protein or flour in their items. When first diagnosed I thought I was being glutened by many gluten free foods that were made in dedicated facilities. It took my doing a food and symptom log to realize the common ...

Would that be Fibromyalgia? I am sorry that you are feeling so much pain. I hope the prednisone works for you. I think Fibromyalgia is a separate issue from celiac disease.
