Gluten Free Beer

I have been invited to a group dinner out at a local restaurant. It's BYOB, and friends have announced they are bringing beer. Not wanting to be the odd one out, I decided I must obtain and bring gluten-free beer. So today I called 4 grocery stores and 10 liquor stores in an attempt to find gluten-free beer. I finally located multiple brands of it at Roots Market in Olney, Maryland, and Redbridge beer at Dugan's liquors in Pikesville, Maryland, as well as at Your Wine & Spirit Shoppe south of Baltimore on Rt 29. Dugan's was the closest, so I opted for it.

I decided it was best to test it out in advance of my dinner to be sure not to have my dinner spoiled by something undrinkable. So I am sitting here with a Redbridge beer, and I have to say it tastes like beer to me. Not my favorite beer, but beer, nevertheless. It has been over a year since I have had one, so at this point I am definitely working from memory. So all of you out there who have been abstaining, go ahead and live a little!

As always, welcomes your comments (see below).

I have been drinking Red Bridge as a celiac for 1.5 years.

Try to find Green's. It is a Belgium sorghum based brew, fantastic tasting. However, the ABV is high, so you need to plan to share it or have a designated driver. It is really worth the cost!

Dear Hallie, Bard's is THE BEST. Give it a try; you will definitely switch beers.

Totally go for the New Grist, in addition to the suggestions above. With all the choices, we can have light or dark, bitter or sweet, etc. We're not missing out on anything! We've got it all.

Hi- my wife was just diagnosed with celiac disease, and as I was looking for information I was struck by your first name. We share an unusual name- I am male and was named after my maternal grandmother Hattie (uncross the T's and there you are). Wondered if you are of my gender, and where the name came from.

Looking for GF beer that taste like Guinness to make Irish beef stew in Maryland. Any suggestions would be appreciated as it is for St. Patrick's day.

Ummm what does this have to do with our gluten free community? Good point about giving stuff you would need to the community and all....but has nothing to do with celiac disease really, just mentions you should not give gluten free bread to a homeless persons that does not need it stating that it...

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...
