Gluten-free Beer By Bud

Recommended Posts

Well I finally had a Redbridge on Friday night. It was really just like a beer to me but I think I prefer Bard's Tale if I had to vote. Hard to say without doing a taste test side by side. I really mostly have beer at Braves games so now it's my mission to get Turner Field concessions to carry Redbridge. They already get AB in so they should be able to bring it in without issue. If you live in the Atlanta metro area and want to enjoy a brewsky at the games, please take a moment to e-mail the Braves (www.braves.com) and ask them to carry Redbridge at the stadium. There should be a phone # on the website if you prefer to call instead. Thanks!

Newbie here so this is my first reply. Let me start by saying I was/am a recognized beer judge and avid home brewer. I went gluten free (beer free) about a year ago. I thought it was hopeless until I found New Grist, then Bard's tale, and now Redbridge. My favorite is Bard's tale followed closely by Redbridge. I have to give some credit to A.B. for stepping up to the plate on this one.

The one piece of advice I can offer is do NOT to drink from the bottle. Use a clean glass either a pilsner or better yet a tuliped pint glass and let it warm up to about 40~45 degrees b/4 drinking. The flavors will be muted if it is served ice cold.

RedBridge beer is the best !!!! A large liquor store in KY called Liquor Barn has it for $7.49 a six pack (bottles). I bought 60 bottles!!!! I love this stuff , and it tastes great. Even my non gluten-free friends like it. I don't agree with it being light, as mentioned in an earlier post. I drank 5 of them and fealt full. But I like a "heavy" beer.

I haven't tried Redbridge, or any of the other gluten-free beers, because I don't like the taste of hops. (That's probably heresy on this thread, but I'll take my chances...)

I used to enjoy wheat beer, which has wheat instead of hops, but of course that had a double dose of gluten. Do any of the currently available gluten-free beers come close to the flavor of wheat beer?
