where do i stand with drinking beer? I know someone who is wheat intolerant and he drinks Budweiser. Does anyone know?

No you can not have beer or malt liquor. Beer and Malt liquors are made with barley and or wheat. There are gluten free beers around, Redbridge is the one made by the same folks as bud.

Some also avoid gluten grain derived distilled or hard liquors, I am one.

Redbridge beer is pretty good. There is a list under "forbidden" foods that tells you which alcohol os ok and which isn't. just go to the home page on this site and scroll down....you'll see it. When I first found I needed to be gluten-free, I printed off the lists....I take them shopping with me....so I know what to look for in ingredients!

Alas :( the no beer aspect of the gluten-free diet was particulary hard for my hubby in the beginning.

You can get gluten-free beer in some of the larger Asda stores in the free from aisle but cheap it ain't !! :rolleyes: (around

gluten-free beers in the US, I've had all 4 of these! Ranked in order of what I liked the best. The Honey Beer from Rampo Valley was good at first, but after a few I started to lose interest. Thought I do love Bards Take and New Grist. Not really a fan of Redbridge. Never really was a fan of those expensive lite beers like Coors and so on(I liked the cheap lite bears, Pabst/Hamms)

Here's one I haven't tried.

Here's an international site about this,(Warnings this is the UK, and gluten free ppm(parts per million) levels are different, so some that may be called gluten-free might not be thought of as gluten-free in the US, for good reason....)
