More Brewing Classes Teaching the Art of Gluten-Free Beers

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.

From just a few products ten or so years ago, there are now dozens and dozens of commercially available gluten-free beers. Taking note of the trend, more beer schools are beginning to tailor new classes on the art of crafting fine gluten-free beers.

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.

If you are interested in learning to brew gluten-free beer, keep your eyes open for local classes, and be sure to share your information in our comments section.

Jefferson, for the sake of the less-informed reader, when speaking of gluten-free beers, you should mention the distinction between naturally gluten-free and gluten-reduced beers. I believe you are aware the gluten-reduced beers have caused reactions in many Celiacs. Beer drinkers be aware: gluten-reduced beer may make you sick.

No, not really. I had done my homework, so I reduced all grains substancially to give my guts a chance to heal. I increased all vegetables substancially and am basically going high fat, low carb. That is why I had a few hicups along the way, my diet was too high in FODMAPs (nuts, fruit, avo...

You might want to see about getting the blood test done again and getting a full celiac panel. You have to be consuming gluten daily for 12 weeks before the test. At least half a slice of bread a day. And keep eating gluten til you get the endoscope. The endoscope with biopsy is the golden standa...

Juca hun.....you just responded and tried talking to a person that has been gone for 12 years....please check the date

Welcome. You do sound like you could be one of us. You should get retested for celiac. Just because tests were negative a couple years ago doesn't mean they will be now. Any doctor can run the panel but if you can see a GI doctor that is familiar with celiac that might be best. Do not stop eat...
