Spanish brewer Damm has produced a beer made with barley malt that is "deglutenized," removing the gluten during the production process. The Estrella Damm Daura pale lager tests at less than 6 ppm for gluten, according to the company. It's just being rolled out now and is available in Pennsylvania, Maryland and a few other states at the moment.

The beer has won the award for Best Gluten Free Beer at the World Beer Awards two years running.

Thanks for the warning. I'll be noting the name of this product so I can be sure to avoid it. I am not someone who considers stuff that has 'the gluten processed out' to be safe. It may be fine for others but the 'gluten processed out' products generally make me ill. Stuff prepared on shared lines that CC us sensitive folks would also test below the allowed limit. I hope this company at least lets folks know in the ingredients that barley is present.

Hope I can find it here in Virginia! Thanks! There are some other barley based gluten free beers in Europe. Hope they begin to distribute too.

Thanks Willow, I do drink Redbridge, I'll be picking up a six tonight after class. I have tried Green's, the dark one, but it was just not to my liking. I'll have to see if they have the pale ale that may be more to my taste.

Where can I find Green's and/or Bard's Tale? I've tried Red Bridge, but I find it too close to what I call "American Pisswater" since in my latter years I was raised by beer snobby Morris Dancers. :) I heard from a cousin of mine that Bard's Tale is good, but I don't know where to find it. (He's not gluten-free, he just liked the name.) I'm in Central Illinois, but I'll be moving to Omaha, NE in 2.5 weeks. I can wait 3 weeks to get a beer. ;)

Bard's Tale used to do on line ordering but I don't know if they still do. Don't know about Greens though.

What is safe? - I think I'm safer with a beer that's tested with 6ppm than untested gluten free products that no doubt could be way up at 20ppm! - I don't care what the ingredient is, I care about the ppm, that's what counts isn't it? The standards in N.America are terrible, gluten free means nothing as products can be packed in a factory that also packs wheat products. I don't think many supposedly gluten free baking supplies are as low as 6ppm, but I wish they were! More testing, thorough testing is the only way to guarantee anything. If you have a problem with 6ppm then you'll have a problem with almost all gluten free products.

If only I could get a gluten-free beer that taste like "American Pisswater", I'd be as happy as a pig in slop. Have never been a beer expert, just give me a MGD, or Coors, or Michelobe. My favorite though, was Dos Equis Amber, not the green. Had just enough taste without being too strong, or having a terrible aftertaste, like Corona. You know it's bad when you have to put a lime in it to drink it.

Now if I was in a place where they had lots of beers on tap, that was a different story. Stronger beer is much better when it's Draft. Plus it's fun to try various offerings say at a microbrewery.

To me, Redbridge tastes nothing like American beer. Just don't like the flavor. The new formulation is better though. Luckily, Tequila's my passion. All tequila is naturally gluten-free.

best regards, lm

I think this is the beer I tried when I was back in the UK and it's the best gluten free beer I ever tasted! - it tastes like regular beer and I hope that it gets rolled out in Canada too, I'd definitely buy it. Wow a beer that tastes good and doesn't give me stomach pains, heaven!

Hee hee, that's hilarious but so true! A lot of gluten-free beers are just too sweet for me. I've decided that redbridge and New Grist are my top two. Have you tried St. Peters Sorgam Ale? It's my very favorite, it's drier and a lot hoppier than the gluten-free beers out there. (PS, this isn't my blog, I'm just using it for reference: beer photo link)

I can't wait to try the Estrella Damm. On another note, I've told my husband that if a brewer doesn't make me a gluten-free stout soon I'm going to have to try making one myself!

One thing you may want to try are ciders, not the candy-a$$ stuff like Woodchuck, but hardcore like Strongbow or Woodpecker or anything from the UK. They are dry and not very sweet. My fave is from Ireland, it's called Magners. I have to drive to Wisconsin to get it, but I know a guy. ;)

I tend to agree with what you say about the fact that at least you know how much gluten is in the beer but I do not think the "unknowns" or companies who label and sell to the gluten free public have products loaded with hidden gluten. I think this is far overplayed. You will always have the exceptions because we see this often with regards to other foods and those contaminated with salmonella, etc. It happens but if all the gluten free food out there is so contaminated or has higher levels of gluten than what is assumed, there would be many sick and angry Celiacs out there....myself included. I do not eat a large amount of processed foods but I do eat some and the amount of times I have gotten sick from them has been miniscule. I am pretty damn sensitive as far as the Celiac goes and I just wouldn't be this healthy if a large amount of the labeled gluten-free stuff were running at 10 ppm. I think the vast majority of people who think this have other food intolerances and allergies they are not factoring in.

Supposedly, it is. On the forums, some people say they reacted, some didn't. I definitely, definitely did. Take your own chances, I suppose (though I certainly won't be doing that again).
