Just looking at the site indicates this company brews beer.  Perhaps, the soft drinks are bottled on the same line as their beers.  Might be a reason for the company to say this root beer is not gluten free.  

For newbies learning to read labels:

How would the label have indicated that gluten is included in this product?  I would have read the label and happily bought it as I do with most food.

You are right, the label does not disclose any gluten ingredients.  I tend to stick with foods that are labeled gluten free (just lazy).  When I do buy foods that are not labeled gluten free, I think about the manufacturer and would the product be manufactured on shared lines, etc.  I am pretty careful because a glutening for me tends to last for months (as documented by my GI).  I wish I were less sensitive, but that is the way it is.
