New gluten-free Beer Is Coming! More Choices

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to alert all the beer drinkers in our gluten-free world that a new beer is on its way....Google SPRECHER Brewing , CO , Inc. to read about . It is made from sorghum & millet.....They call it an easy drinking beer & pares nicely with salads, sandwiches & etc.

They are to send me more info.......

My guess is yet another American one, yes?? ....though I think if we had more than La Messagere here in Canada I'd still stick with it. I've gotten used to the $18.95 a pack and to memorizing the costs if I buy all 4 packs at once :lol:

Seattle and Oregon have great micro beers, now if only one of those brewers would brew for us!

Redbridge is not bad for a beer and when I feel like having beer I can drink it withou complaint. It isn't unreasonable in price either. A six pack is about $8.00. The beers that come in single bottles tend to cost a bit more and don't always taste better.

The description of this beer sounds like a wine type ale (please tell me you know what i mean), will have to try it though and see how it is.

Has anyone tried any beer other then redbridge?

the only one I've had so far is bard's tale. I'm not a huge beer fan - well, I've mostly hated it all my life - but this one is okay. (that's high praise from me. ;) )

I am not much a beer fan either, I like sweet drinks. Having another beer to choose from is great news, it means people are starting to find our audience. That is never a bad thing :)

Here are my beer reviews:

New Grist: yuck. It's rice-based. I didn't like it at all.

Redbridge: pretty good, and bonus: it's readily available in about 4 stores in my Flagstaff, plus it's priced competitively. Sorghum based.

Bard's Tale's Dragon's Gold: Way very good. Downside: pricey, and harder to find (I've found it at Whole Foods Market and one little mom and pop grocery store. Sorghum based.

I've heard that beer in Africa is generally sorghum based.

I'm not much of a beer drinker either but Ido like Redbridge esp for french fried onion rings!!!!! Next choice is Bard's Gold.

susanna, we all may soon find out if African sorghum is the best to date. That is what this new beer is supposed to be....

I just like the idea that more & more choices are becoming available in our gluten-free world....

There are two beers that Sprecher is offering that are gluten free- Mbege and Shakparo Ale. The description on the Shakparo sounds interesting- made with bananas and unfiltered.

I live in Madison, WI so I should be able to find them in my area (Sprecher is in Milwaukee, WI). I'll let you all know when I find them, how they are. I have a feeling they will be more pricey than Redbridge because they are a limited release beer from a smaller brewery.

By the way- I emailed Sprecher to find out who carries the beer in my area last night and I already got a response from them this morning (that is quick!) so you could email them to find out if distributors carry their beer in your areas.

When I went gluten-free, I was bummed that I couldn't drink my Miller Lites. But wine was a next alternative. Until lately, I get migraines and swollen joints - most like from the sulfites - after only one glass :( ! I bought Red Bridge but haven't tried it (hmm the kids have been home because of a snow day and they've been fighting, now might be a good time to try it <_< !) I tried New Grist and my husband said it tastes a bit stronger than the beer I like. I can't wait to try this new one out - hopefully it'll be available in my area!

I have found a gluten-free ale from Belgium. My lovely local Liquor store guy found it and brought it in to stock! Wines unlimited in Mlfd, CT. It is called Green's Blegium ale it is made from a combo of rice, sorghum, millet and buckwheat. There are 3 different varieties (Quets, Endeavor, and Discovery). I like the endeavor the best. It has a slightly bitter bite, with a coca/molasses tatse. Kinda like a Sam Adams. Haven't tried Quest yet. I liked the Discovery too. Hey anything is better than New grist in my opinion! It comes in single pint bottle about $4 a pop, but I figure it is worth it once in a while.

Thanks for the info! I am from Connecticut too. The only beer I could find is the Redbridge and I'm not a huge fan. I can't wait to try these!

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
