VeggieGal

Cheers!..having My First gluten-free Beer...hic!

Recommended Posts

After 7 months without a beer, I thought it was time to try a gluten-free one being as they were on offer :)

Estrella Damm Daura..... mmm not bad at all I must say. But I'm pretty sure, I used to be able to have more than one bottle before feeling tipsy ...hic :)

Its a shame though, that its the only brand gluten-free available, so suppose I will have to suss out other supermarkets.

Let us know how you do with this beer, VeggieGal, because barley malt is used in the ingredients list but they have a process, which is proprietary, that strips the gluten protein from the barley malt down to less than 6ppm's.  I am always interested to see how people tolerate this type of product!  I hope all is well because you certainly deserve a beer as a treat!  ;)

Oh yes..I can see barley malt hidden in the ingredients grrrrrrrr :( although it is sold gluten free. I've had two bottles and must admit my tummy is gurgling and I'm abit windy.... you're lucky you arent here lol.

Strange thing is I never had many gut problems pre-dx but when I get glutened now, I know about it....maybe thats a good thing to serve as a warning.

I'll let you know if there's any other issues !!!

I recently tried Woodchuck hard cider - I have to say - delicious. I was really pleased with it and had zero reaction to it.

 

Sorry your stomach started gurgling :(

Glad you enjoyed the cider Glutenstinks, it looks like I may have to try some. I do like my red wine but must admit, I really miss Desperados beer :( . I'm really not an alcho honest haha !

I was also thrilled to learn that all wines made in the states are gluten free. That made me VERY happy :rolleyes:

 

Give the cider a shot. There are a few different flavors. I tried the amber one so far and I really like it.

 

Here's their site: http://www.woodchuck.com/cider/styles.html

 

Good luck!

Thanks for that link. I'm in the UK but will have a look for Woodchuck. Would be nice to have something different for the summer months.

I've just remembered, I had a couple of Pimms at the weekend and it never ever crossed my mind to check if gluten-free!....well I didnt have any reactions luckily :)

:lol: :lol:   You have a good sense of humor, VeggieGal!

 

Once gluten-free, you will notice that you start to feel reactions more because you have cleaned out your system, so to speak, and can now feel what gluten does to your gut.  My reactions are horrible and I go to great lengths for that not to happen.  :(   But this is a good sign.....you are healing and can now know when you have taken a hit.

 

Thought I would add this link for you:  http://www.foodsmatter.com/allergy_intolerance/alcohol_and_wine/articles/gluten_free_beer.html

My husband drinks Green's beer from Belgium and he absolutely loves it. Maybe this link can help you find more choices.  Cheers!

Thanks Gemini, I think we need to have to cope with some of our issues :)

Yes that makes alot of sense about healing. Well I've had no further issues but even so, the fact I had some last night no doubt means its doing some damage I don't know its confusing as they are presumed safe!?!

Oooh I will have a look for Greens and thanks for the link.... all I need now is to find a gluten-free beer festival lol...well I can wish!
