Anyone Try Daura gluten-free Beer?

Gluten removed beers are not gluten free nor are they safe for celiacs.  About 6 months after I was diagnosed I was given one of these beers...I didn't know then what I know now.  I wanted to die that night.  I spent so much time on the crapper I just slept on the bathroom floor.  It took me 2 weeks to work through the rest of the symptoms.  Brain fog, fatigue, nausea, bloating, joint pain...it was horrible.  Don't do it!

That sounds horrible! I just stay away from beer, period. Had tried a mouthful of redbridge ages ago and spit it out, tasted so bad. I've just gotten out of the habit of drinking completely.

I finally caved and tried Daura 2 weeks ago. I miss beer like crazy, and now that summer is here I was really craving a cold 'normal tasting' beer.

Andddddd...got glutened.

As much as I wanted to believe it was celiac safe it definitely (and very sadly) is not. 

I read many online threads to weigh the risk before trying it out and there were reports of some celiacs having no reaction - I really think the people who don't react to it are the less sensitive ones (or asymptomatic ones) but the gluten is likely damaging them internally.

I'm gonna stick to Bard's, Nickel Brook, and my new fav - Schnitzer Brau. All do the trick and are available in Toronto!

Thx so much Cycling lady, I appreciate your feedback!. My issue is that I don't have GI issues, just weight loss and low iron. I understand low iron takes ages to fix (I'm on prescription iron) What do you mean each person has to determine what is safe or not. How can I tell? I drank the beer initially and no symptoms but I'm sure my Villi are suffering if this beer isn't good for me. I have stopped drinking it, but concerned about other things. This is one tough disease. People ask me if I'm dairy intolerant, how do I know? I'm worrying about what I don"t know.

On a gluten-free diet, my low iron resolved within months with supplementation.    I would ask your doctor to re-check your ferritin levels and antibodies at the three month mark since you can not judge by symptoms.  I would also ask for a bone scan.  I fractured two vertebrae doing NOTHING two months into my celiac disease diagnosis.  Found out I had osteoporosis.  

I would think that if you were dairy intolerant, you would experience all the classic symptoms of gas, bloating, etc.  If you are not, I would not worry about dairy.  Not all celiacs are dairy intolerant.   Go eat some cheese!

I used to drink Guinness, sometimes a half-n-half over Harp or Bass. I call Sam Adams a good light beer, and probably gave up on Budwiper and the like 30 years ago. So while it is nice to find companies making lots of "Yeah, that almost tastes like cheapo beer"....There's not a one of them that can touch Sam Adams, let alone Guinness. (Yeah, I know, I shouldn't call them all "beer" but then again, I'm a barbarian.)

Haven't found any commercially made mead, that's beer's grandpa, and IT is gluten free. No wheat, barley, or hops involved.

Redbridge...well...it almost tastes like Bud as I remember it. I give AB kudos just for trying, even if they don't know what beer is.(G)

New Grist from Lakefront Brewery is CERTIFIED gluten free.  Leave the Omission alone if you are celiac. Made me ill.  Watch out if you take a cruise.  The ship I am getting ready to cruise on carries Daura Damm and it sounds too much like the Omission process.  Too bad they won’t let me bring my own.

I had this beer at a German Restaurant in Sanford, FL. I am gluten intolerant and react badly to even small mistakes at restaurants, total system flush and about a week to normal again. I had no reaction at all to this beer. In fact I am looking for a source near me at the moment. It had great flavor and I would love to find some near me.
