Sibling Revelry Seeks Gluten-free Beer Harmony

Celiac.com 04/14/2017 - Sibling Revelry Brewery (say that three times fast), is a tiny northeastern Ohio company dedicated to brewing quality brews in small batches.

The company's name may not roll off the tongue easily, but their gluten-free beer tastes good enough that brewmaster Pete Velez is planning a second batch.

Called Em Sav Saison, the limited-release beer is the company's first gluten-free brew. Described as having "aromas of sweet spice and Chardonnay that leads to a bright fruity body with a dry, semi-tart finish," it comes in at 5.8 percent alcohol, with 35 International Bittering Units.

To get a deep, rich, full-bodied flavor, the Mr. Velez uses millet, buckwheat and sorghum for grain, along with Magnum, Arianna and Calista hops, and tops it off with a Belgian Saison yeast.

Velez was motivated partly by the fact that his wife is gluten-free, and partly by the drive to develop a distinct and original identity. "No one around here is really doing gluten-free beer," he says, "it's a niche market…something we can use to differentiate ourselves in the ever-crowding beer market."

People with celiac disease can have diverse reactions to gluten consumption, with some experiencing mild discomfort that passes fairly quickly, while others experience debilitating effects that can last days.

Em Sav Saison is brewed using "100 percent gluten-free ingredients," says Velez, who points out that the beer has tested below 10 parts per million total gluten, well below the 20ppm threshold set by the FDA for products labeled "gluten-free." However, the tests were not official and certified to meet federal standards. As such, he does note that the product could contain trace amounts of gluten.

At the moment, Velez seems to be testing the water, with an eye toward expanding as his business grows. If he grows enough to begin distributing, he says he will have to engage an officially certified lab to test the product so it can be labeled and sold as gluten-free.

Until then, if you find yourself in the Cleveland Ohio, look up Sibling Revelry Brewery and give gluten-free Em Sav Saison a try. If you do, please be sure to let us know how you like it.

Yesterday morning I found my vision greying out on my right eye. It didn't last long, maybe a couple of minutes. The best way I can describe it is as if I'm looking out for a grey cover which is partially blocking my vision. Sometimes it's almost completely blocked, on this occasion it was just p...

Hopefully they will be able to see you soon. Ignore my last comment about a b vitamin, if your getting shots it shouldn't be required obviously... I didn't understand your statement about your blood band %? Maybe if you can expand on that one of our more knowledgable users can help?

I do have a referral to another GI at one of the top hospitals in North Carolina. I'm just waiting on the call to schedule an appointment.

OK, that's good news, not the milk in the cabinet, that you've not cut gluten! Stick with it and wait for the test results. If they're positive then it will be another endoscopy, but this time with the biopsies. If negative, don't despair. Your GP may still refer you but if not you can try t...

No I havent cut out any gluten. I cut out stuff I knew hurt me. Like watermelon. Which sucks because I LOVE watermelon. There are days that I cant even get words out. I can think a sentence and just cant get it out. I constantly stumble and feel drunk in my head. I'm hoping these daily shot...
