Redbridge is gluten-free so it shouldn't be gluten causing the problem. Even if there's a small amount of contamination, it would be so incredibly tiny there's be now way in heck to measure it. I've had Redbridge, New Grist, Bards and Greens with no problem. Also had hard cider.

I've managed to get my hands on Redbridge, Bards, and some of the Ciders. Redbridge is ok, but still doesn't really taste like beer to me. Bards really, really sucks! The ciders are decent, so long as you are expecting a sweet taste and not a beer taste. The first time I had one, expecting BEER, I couldn't even finish my bottle (my wonderful beer-loving -- to put it mildly -- husband had to finish it), but the next time it tasted fine and since I've really learned to love it. I have a (almost $7!) bottle of Green's sitting in the fridge now, but haven't tried it yet.

Yes, Redbridge does not bother me either. If you can stand the taste.

Bards has been ok for me as well.

Dont know Greens. Will have to try it, as all of them taste like you know what.

I miss real beer...

I'm with you! I think the Redbridge was hands down better than the Bards, but neither were really BEER! Maybe I'll go try the $6+ bottle of Greens I have in the fridge and give you a report on it.

We have one called O'Brien's but I haven't found it in town yet even after the search told me there are 3 outlets that sell it. I want to see if it's ok because when my LO is 18 I want her to be able to have a low-alcohol drink. I'm a beer drinker myself and can have a few before I'm over the limit but I never have enough to be over the limit anyway. I want the same for her.

Greens is quite enjoyable! I am not a fan of Redbridge or Bards, but I will drink them if I must. lol. I love Magner's cider!

Oh, I wish I could find Magner's Cider near my house. That's all I drank when I was on my honeymoon in Ireland. They called it Bulmer's in the Republic of Ireland and Mangers in Northern Ireland but it was the same cider. For a while I could get Hornsby's Cider at the local Kroger but I guess I was the only buying it, so they stopped carrying it. Woodchuck is okay, but not nearly as good as Magner's.

I like the New Grist. If you were a fan of Leinie's before pre-gluten-free, this is probably as close as you'll come to a similar product. I used to buy Red Bridge because it was the cheapest on the shelves of the stores in my hometown, but then they bumped up the price about $1 and dropped New Grist by about the same... Haven't bought Red Bridge since.

You are all so lucky to have a choice. Mississippi has such wierd laws about alcohol that Red Bridge is all that is available. You know how that goes...if it's all you can have , it's pretty good.

fourlisa,

I see that you are a new member. Does that mean that you are new to gluten free as well? If so, the alcohol (or some other component in the beer) may just be a little too much for your system at the moment. You might want to give yourself a little more time.

That being said. I personally like the hard ciders . . . and there is always wine :rolleyes:

I have to agree w/ Darn, it may be too soon and also you may be CC from something else. I'm a beer drinker as well, I found the Red Bridge the best (have tried Bard's - too many flavors w/ each sip and bitter, Grist too light and a lime after taste). Those 3 are the only ones available in Long Island. My son was home last week and he brought the Cider, great flavor but goes down like candy. I find I can't tolerate wine @ this time, I'm only 3 &1/2 weeks free.

I would give it a few days rest and carefully watch your diet make sure you have no CC when, your feeling well then I would try the Red Bridge again. Good Luck. If you find beer in a can let me know as we can't bring bottles into a Nascar race.

Have to ask all ya beer fans what do you pay for a (24) case? $32 + tax and deposit in NY.

My favorite gluten-free beer is New Planet - out of Colorado but they started carrying it in Oklahoma in the last few months. That is my first choice now for a beer, with Green's beers as a second choice. My local liquor store now has a shelf of a half-dozen different gluten-free beers now.
