Red Bridge Beer

Recommended Posts

My distributor just called me and let me know that the new Red Bridge sorghum beer will be delivered tomorrow and the price will be $29.99 for a case. For reference, normal beer around here is about $20 a case, Mike's Hard Lemonade is about $27 a case. Bard's Tale sells for about $43 a case. Woo-Hoo!!! This time they were sure they would be getting it in tomorrow. He called their distributor to make sure before calling me. :) The distributor is Brass Rail Beverage in Campbelltown, PA, just in case anyone is in the area and interested.

I am so jealous!!!

How did you figure out where it would be stocked? Did you just ask around?

I really hope to see some near me soon -- in the meantime, drink a toast to us when you throw back your Friday evening beer tomorrow! :D

The distributor actually told my husband about the beer. We had never heard of it before. They've been expecting it in now for about a week and a half. Arrival was gauranteed for tomorrow though. I'm sure you can ask your local distributor to order some in... It's an Anhueser-Busch beer. Oh, and I called A-B today and they said it is definitely gluten free. Yea!!!

Man I work next-door to Campbelltown too. Wow! Thanks for the info.

Yeah, definitely a good deal on gluten free beer. I called A-B tonight and they confirmed that it is definitely gluten free. Yea!!! I'll post tomorrow when they get it in. Hopefully we can get Outback to carry this one since it's so much cheaper. I think they all get it from Kirchner's in Lancaster. Maybe I'll have to do some checking around on that.

I will definitely be going out there this afternoon. We've dubbed today as "Red Bridge Day". I never in a million years thought that I could be so excited over beer.

It's here!!! It's delicious!!! It tastes similar to a Heineken and Rolling Rock mix. It has no bite and is slightly lighter than Bard's Tale. All in all, very good. I'll let you guys know how it tastes when it's actually cold. Right now it's kind of sort of cold. Still great! Woo-Hoo!!!!

BTW, it was the projected $29.99, significantly cheaper than all of the other gluten free beers.

:) I have been looking for beer since July and the local liqor store come up with one made in Milwaukee.

The name is New Grist made by Lakefront Brewery. I finely got ahold of some as they sell out as fast as they get it in which surprised me as I live on the western slope in Colorado in a small town. I had a bottle and it taste like real beer. This is something others may want to check out. They have a web site

www.lakefrontbrewery.com click on New Grist. The beer is also made with sorghum and rice extract. Cheers to all.

Hawkeye, if you call your liquor store they will likely order you what you want and reserve it for you. The Bard's Tale Beer is a much richer beer with a full flavor and a nice bite to it. New Grist is kind of more like a light beer in comparison, still good though. Red Bridge tastes more like a mainstream bar beer with a slightly perfume-like flavor such as Heinekin. Most distributors should be able to get Red Bridge since it's made by Anhueser-Busch.
