Hello,

RamapoValleybrewery.com. They have it and used to ship it. I haven't tried it. Maybe you can call them.

I have tried Bards Beer which I bought in a Whole Foods in Manhattan. Unfortunatly, they haven't had a shipment in awhile and they may have gone out of business. I emailed them and have not received a response.

Also, its not beer but many hard ciders are gluten-free.

Good luck,

Kevin

I know that Bards Tale beer is out of stock for a little while. They had a bad batch (the beer bottles would explode in people's fridges).

I'm lucky cause I am Canadian and every time my family comes to visit, they bring me a case of "La Messagere" beer. It is gluten free and tastes great! Also, smirnoff Ice vodka drinks in Canada are gluten free. It isn't a malted drink like the US version.

I actually drink mostly red wine. If I don't feel like have such a hard drink, I'll make a sangria out of it.

Here's a link with some info about gluten-free beer:

http://www.sillyyak.com.au/beer/links.html

They just started selling Ramapo Valley beer at my local Beverages and More...which is pretty awesome! It's the first time I've been able to buy gluten-free beer in San Diego without having to order it online. I'm actually pretty impressed too...all the BevMo employees suddenly seem to know quite a bit about celiac disease (the last time I went there and asked for Ramapo Valley the guy was like "gluten free beer!" and he proceeded to give me an entire explanation of what celiac disease is. I was like "yeah I have that - that's why I'm buying this beer" lol). I guess they've been selling a lot of it. :)

I'd kill for a gluten-free beer. I miss beer as much as I miss bread.

It figures,

I move out of San Diego and now you guys get the gluten-free beer.

One would think that someone would get the hint here in Sin City...

Sigh...

Oh well, I will have to come visit San Diego and take a few cases home with me...

Where in SD did you get it Meredith?

new grist is awesome. i believe that on the website it will tell you which liquor stores in your area carry it. If you have a Binnys - they have it. but some of our smaller liquor stores here in chicago have it too. Lakefront Brewery makes it.

I never was a beer drinker even before having to go gluten-free (more of a vodka person myself.....) but here in Canada, celiacs are lucky. There are select LCBO's (our liquor store up here) that sell gluten-free beer, the french one, I can't remember the name of it, but everyone raves about it......

If I ever go down to the States for a celiac conference or anything, I will make sure I bring a good supply to any fellow celiac.com'ers who go also!!!!

I can remember years ago going down with hubby (just boyfriend at the time) to Cincinnati to see the Reds and Pirates play. This was pre-gluten-free diet. I forgot all my Caesar stuff at home. I went into a supermarket and asked them where their clamato juice, tabasco sauce and worsteshire sauce was. They looked at me like I had two heads. I explained that it was for a drink we enjoy up here in Canada. They proceeded to look at me like I had three heads then....... :lol:

I'm from NH (Portsmouth) and the last time I bought gluten-free beer it was Bard's Tale and I got it in Woodstock, NH at the general store. But then they had the batch with the exploding bottles.. I just checked their website and it looks like Vermont is still the closest to us. I haven't found anyone that carries Ramapo either but I put in a request at a place in Portsmouth called Philbrick's. It's the closest we have to Whole Foods here (which I don't think can sell alcohol in Mass anyway, right?).

If I hear anything, I'll let you know. B

Whole Foods is supposed to start selling gluten-free beer in a month or so. They wouldn't give me any more information than that because the deal isn't quite done.

I had my first beer in over 5 years this past week while I was visiting NYC. Every time I go to any Whole Foods location, I check for gluten-free beer for the slight chance that they may have it. Well, the Manhattan Whole Foods on 7th (near 25th?) had 2 6-packs of Ramapo's passover honey ale (their gluten-free beer). The beer was surprisingly good and I am wondering where I can find it in MA now. I'll be sure to repost if I find it around here.

By the way, that rice beer in the tall silver cans is Sapporo and they will not say that it is safe for gluten-free because it is brewed in non-dedicated facilities.

Take care.

I got it at the Bevmo in Encinitas. I had read an article on the Gluten Free in SD website that said Ramapo Valley was now being sold in San Diego. I couldn't believe it when I walked into Bevmo and they actually had it!!!!! :D:D:D (and p.s. it makes our $7 loaves of bread look really cheap in comparison - but i guess it's still better than having to pay for shipping and such :) )

So have we ascertained that no one ships gluten-free beer? Our Whole Foods won't carry it I'm sure, as I live in PA with the dumbest liquor laws on the books!! I might have to make a road trip to NYC!!

No I'm pretty sure Ramapo Valley will ship it to you.

    • Spicely Organics lab certifies all their spices gluten-free. The turmeric and curry powder they have is safe, also Thai Kitchen Curry Paste is certified Gluten free....I like you do not trust the normal curry powders or most blends with it.
    • In 1978 Virginia Slims' magazine advertising spouted "You've Come A Long Way Baby". Well, in 2011 "WE" celiac/DH people can express those same words when talking about how far we have travelled since I was diagnosed as a brittle celiac/DH person 16 years ago. If the people with peanut allergies can become well known, so can celiac people! DID YOU KNOW: That 16 years ago gluten free foods were difficult to find, and upon finding the small frost-bitten white-gummy loaf of bread, which was even more expensive than it is today, one had to scrape it off the roof of your mouth with your tongue and chew!

    • I would be willing to bet that nothing changed in that product except the label.  A bunch of companies seemed to have decided that they need to put "May contains allergens " on the everything to be safe.  But I wouldn't buy it any longer.    
    • If you want testing for celiac you will have to go back on gluten for 2 to 3 months for the blood test. There is a chance that your biopsy will be positive but if not then a challenge is in order. It would be a good idea to have your son tested also to keep him safe in school etc. He would need to do a challenge also if his ped agrees to test. It sounds like the wooden items your father made have great sentimental value. Perhaps you could clean them very well and then give them a sanding. That might make them safe for use.  
    • I've assumed for the last 8 years that I have gluten intolerance, or NCGS as I see it's now called. I thought that I had testing done (blood tests) that indicated I did not have celiac disease, and proceeded to follow a gluten free diet, most of the time. I've had gluten different times for different reasons, mostly because I started thinking "This can't be true. I should be able to eat my delicious home made bread!" and I suffered the consequences. Mostly pain in my neck and upper back, burning between the shoulder blades, also bloating and cravings for sugar and junk food. Each time, it took longer to recover from having gluten in my diet. The last time was over the holiday season last Christmas. Now I'm having pretty persistent symptoms, with the addition of occasional severe epigastric pain. So, off to the doctor I went to get this severe pain checked out. I found myself having an EGD a few days later, and when I woke up from my propofol induced stupor, there was the nice gastroenterologist telling me that he'd done biopsies to check for h. pylori AND CELIAC. I was floored. He didn't know I'd been gluten free. He did find mild gastritis and reflux, and no sign of hiatal hernia, which is what I really thought I had. I've looked through all my test results from the last 10 years, and can find nothing about testing for gliadin antibodies, or any of the tests mentioned here for gluten issues. I did have allergy testing done that was negative for wheat but I know that's not the same thing. I'm assuming that my biopsy will be normal, but that would be meaningless because I've been mostly gluten-free. The only times I've had gluten since January is maybe five times when I've had a couple of croutons on my salad at Olive Garden, or had an egg roll or wonton soup. If it's positive, then I know I've not been as vigilant about eliminating gluten as I should be, and I will have to stop using my wooden spoons (that my Daddy made) and my wood cutting boards (that my Daddy made) and throw away my favorite plastic spatula. My wooden cooking things were in use long ago, when I was still cooking wheat pasta, etc. So I know they are contaminated. My husband is telling me that there can't be enough gluten in those utensils to make a difference, but I've always worried about it a little bit. My Daddy can't make me any more things to replace the ones I have... I think right now that maybe the best thing for me would be to actually have a formal diagnosis, because that would make it easier for me to stick to the gluten free business. Right now it's too easy to let it slide, and to let people convince me that it's OK "just this one time". But - I'm wondering if there are any drawbacks that I am not aware of, and if anyone here knows please tell me what they are! If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? I really need to be sure because I have two children. One of them has anti thyroid antibodies (I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis) and that son also has alopecia areata and psoriasis. He is gluten free along with me.
