Ramapo Valley Brewery Gluten Free Beer

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My friend called me and said he had a gift for me. He stopped by my house early one morning, because we had to go to work together and wanted to drop off the gift.

He did alot of research and found a gluten free beer for me. He actually FEDEX it to his house. I was very surprised and excited. I thought that was very thoughtful of him and his wife.

It actually tastes pretty good. Contains water, molasses, hops, honey, and Passover yeast. I believe we can have all those ingredients. It has gluten free written right on the bottle.

He also found out that a local Winery, ( Stirling Wines & Liquors, in Stirling, New Jersey ) 5 minutes from my apt, has the gluten-free Beer instock. So he did his homework, I thought that was really nice of him. He really put some time into finding the gluten-free Beer for me.

Well, thats all for know. I was wondering if anybody has tried it yet.

Thanks,

-Joe

The answer to your question is no--I'm only 14-- but I have read the comments of many others. The general consensus seems to be that Bard's Tale Beer is the best and most popular, followed by Ramapo... those are the two big brands of gluten-free beer.

I haven't had a chance to try the beer that you mentioned above, but I recently have begun to stock Grist (sp?) beer made from Lakefront Breweries in my fridge. I love being able to have a beer again and I can buy this where I live (Racine, WI).

Joe-

What a cool friend! I still haven't seen ramapo, but have had Bard's Tale and it is pretty good. I'm more of a cider/hard alcohol person than beer...but glad you found it to be pretty good. I think more gluten-free beers are on the way!

Make sure you refrigerate the beer. It can go bad on you.

I have a cross-contamination question for you guys:

If a bar/restaurant has a gluten-free beer on the same tap as other beers that we cannot have, will there be any cross contamination? I am not that familiar with beer or beer taps but it looks like there might be possible contamination.

I called Ramapo and talked to rep. I did not order yet. I live in Virginia and have been gluten-free since May 05. Going to NC to visit in-laws Christmas Day. I may have some gluten-free beer there waiting for me. I would like to taste some prior to ordering myself. With each passing day I think we are all that much closer to having one of the major brewers producing a product we can enjoy at an affordable price. It won't take many more articles such as the one in WSJ two weeks ago to get the ball rolling. Merry Christmas to all!

I've had the Ramapo Gluten Free Beer and I reather enjoyed it. The lady on the phone said that you don't have to refrigerate it as long as you keep it in a cool dry place. I was looking into trying bards as well but I hear they are out of bussiness. Has anyone else heard this? It is a little pricey, but isn't everything that is gluten free?

My dad recently had 2 6packs shipped to me to try out, each 6pack sells for $11 and shipping is $11 per 6pack, ridiculous cost if you ask me. The flavor was not to bad, considering I hadn't had a beer in a good month or so before hand. Until I tried Lakefront Brewery' "New Grist Beer" which is brewed using Sorghum Flour, this is by far better than the Ramapo Valley beer, and its only $7/6pack! Whole Food carries it (according to the brewery) and they have a lot of distributors throughout the country. (PS, I have NO affiliation with Lakefront Brewery nor receive any kickbacks, this is just my honest opinion)

Thanks to all for this lively discussion!!

My husband is non-gluten-free but tries really hard to keep gluten-free with me. He has been wanting to try these beers since we haven't been able to 'enjoy' the football season together properly.

We will be trying all we can find.
