Does anyone know if this beer is available in Maine or New Hampshire? :

-Finnish Brewery Makes World's First Gluten-Free Malt Beer Finnish brewery Laitilan said it had made the world's first malt beer that does not contain gluten, a substance found in wheat and other grains that provokes a serious allergic reaction in millions of people around the world. "Until recently, real beers have been prohibited from celiac (gluten-intolerant) patients' diet ... Today they are allowed to enjoy the full-malt Kukko Pils beer from Laitilan brewery," the company said in a statement. "Laitilan Kukko Pils is the world's first ever full-malt beer brand to receive the international gluten-free product trademark," it added. Gluten intolerance, or celiac disease, is a chronic nutritional disturbance caused by the inability to metabolize gluten, which is found in all wheat, rye, barley and oat products. The disorder, which can only be controlled by completely eliminating gluten from one's diet, can result in malnutrition, a distended abdomen and heightens the risk of cancer. Obtaining the gluten-free product trademark "opens up new sales channels abroad," Laitilan managing director Rami Aarikka said in the statement, pointing out that as many as one percent of Europeans and Americans suffer from celiac disease. "We intend to commence exports as soon as we've gathered the right partners," he added

I live in NH and I don't think it is. I can get Bard's Tale and Ramapo in Vermont, but not NH.

You might want to read this link though:

It contains 4 ppm gluten which is really low but I'm not sure that personally I would trust it because it looks like the malt is still grain derived. I could be wrong. I just know that i'm sensitive enough that I probably wouldn't chance it. If you find it, let me know!

I'd like to know which gluten-free Beer(s) taste like (Bud Lite, Miller Lite, Coors Lite, etc.)....and where do you order it from? I've looked around online and maybe i'm retarded, but I can't figure out which gluten-free beer would taste like a good ol American beer much less can I find where to order it. I miss a good cold one....HELP!!

well- I've only had two. Neither tasted like a good old American beer. Ramapo is VERY sweet. I liked it at first but not so much anymore- but someone sugggested cutting it with a lemon so I will try that as I have 10 of 12 left.

Bard's tale rocked! i miss it (it's supposed to be back out soon). It's lager so it's heavier (?) than a Bud Light but to me it tasted like a good micro-brew. Honestly, you'd never know it was gluten-free. It was just plain good beer. New Grist might be what you're looking for, but Ii haven't tried it yet. You think Budweiser or Coors would catch on and realize there's a market for this stuff and make a gluten-free Bud Light or whatever. I myself am a beer "snob" but my husband loves his PBR. Blech!

New Grist by Lakefront Brewery is a lighter beer. I really enjoy it. I am not sure where it is sold outside of the Milwaukee area. It is made here in Wisconsin, so I know I can get it here. Check out lakefrontbrewery.com You might be able to find info there on how to get it.
