Found Redbridge @ Giant Eagle in Cleveland. It's good. It's also good to have some choices especially outside of the health food store route. Paid $7.90 for a six pack.

I tried to buy this today and they were out. I am not a huge beer drinker but wanted to compare it to New Grist, which I like. The liquor guy said that the Red Bridge has been very popular and that A-Busch underestimated how popular it would be. He cannot get the stock he wants and if he does it is gone quickly. Just glad to see it sell!

:P My husband and I both loved the new Red Bridge beer. At the Publics I go to the beer rep say's he has 4 customers that buy a case each, each week. So now we are customer number 5 to buy a case a week. I think my husband will now live....

I finally got the Redbridge...and it tastes great...like normal beer...which is a taste I'm definitely going to have to acquire :) but the hilarious thing is that my friends saw beer in the fridge and just went to town and LOVED it, I was like HEY THAT'S MINE!!! they were shocked that it tasted "normal" :P

That is awesome- my friend who owns a liquor store started carrying it because it was less expensive than Bard's tale.

I have a question though. If beer is on draft, as opposed to bottled, we probably couldn't drink it? :blink: Are all the tap lines the same?

maybe it won't matter as you'll just get it bottled in a bar. Just thinking out loud.

I have to agree about Redbridge....good stuff. I'm not incredibly picky about beer, I was just happy to have something else to drink since I can't tolerate wine. But my husband is picky, and even he thought it was pretty good.

What's even better, is that I can buy it at Walmart!

Yes!! I recently saw the Red Bridge Beer in the health section at the grocery store. I didn't buy it because I didn't want to pay $9.00 for a six-pack on something I may not like. Thanks for your input!! I'll try it next time. At this point I'm not sure I have celiac disease. I'm currently doing the self-proclaimed detective work. Thanks, Dave

I haven't seen any of the other beers mentioned here but everyone is right. To me it tastes like a Fat Tire when I thought I was able to drink anything but preferred a little better quality. It has that micro-brewery taste...a good flavor. I used to make pale ale and a few others. I wonder if they have a gluten-free beer kit to make?

I was a big fan of it until I found out that each beer was 174 calories and 20 grams carbs.

-That's like drinking 2 Miller Lites (which I can handle fine). But interesting enough, I only seem to really respond well to Miller Lite.

I just got a 6 pack of that... trying it tonight. I can't get Bard's Tale yet, but I'm trying. I hesitate to try anything made by A-B, though, but since my choices are limited, I'm going to try it.

If you like a lighter tasting beer New Grist is okay (like Bud or along those lines) as well. I like to mix it with a dark and dry cider to give it a bit more "oomph"

If anyone likes and misses microbrews, then i whole heartedly suggest Green's Ales. It is from Belgium and a bit expensive, but at 7% abv, you only need one, lol! The owner/brewer is also a celiac! I have tried the dubble and the tripple,and they are fantastic and in my opinion, the gold standard for US gluten-free brewers to strive for. I hope the US distributor will carry more variety soon. Here is a link to the website: (and no, I don't work for them.... yet, lol!)

One of the advantages to Redbridge I've discovered is that it's made by anheuser busch. While no store within an hours drive of me stocks it, I was able to ask a small local market if they could order me a case. It turns out not to be a problem. Just about every store that carries beer receives AB deliveries on a regular basis. If the driver doesn't have it on the truck, he can get it next time around. Yes the store tacked on overhead, but I'm so thrilled to have something to drink I don't care. And a case is going to last me a while since I only drink one or two a week.

Everyone's tastes are different, but Redbridge is definitely a drinkable beer.

My personal favorite is New Grist, but if I can't find it, Redbridge is definitely a decent alternative.

There's something special about being able to bring a six pack of beer to a football tailagate, as opposed to a bottle of Chopin Vodka.

Drinking beer at 10AM in a parking lot is OK. Vodka will get you some looks.
