Welcome to the forum, Shlomo. In answer to your question... yes, beer contains gluten.

Now if there are any non-gluten beers, I'm uncertain. Some here might know, though.

Here's a previous post about the topic. Hope it helps!

And as you probably already know, it's best to call the manufacturer to make sure their gluten-free status is current.

:D Hi Shlomo, Here's a post that I found about beer:

Gluten Free Honey Lager

The beer features a bright golden color and has an alcohol content of around 5.5%. To make a beer gluten-free, no barley or wheat is used. It includes honey notes and a touch of molasses in the flavor. Only "noble" hops are used for flavor and aroma. Brewed in dedicated fermenters using kosher yeast. We are

in the process of pricing and shipping costs. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us directly, GNSRSES@aol.com. You may contact us directly for shipping 1-845-369-7827.

Ramapo Valley Brewery

http://www.ramapovalleybrewery.com

We are located at 122 Orange Ave. Suffern, NY 10901

I hear it's kind of expensive, but if this is all we can drink as far as beer goes, I guess we'll pay it. I used to be an occasional beer drinker, but now have turned to wine. I can get it everywhere, and this beer can only be ordered (so I understand).

Good Luck, Let me know what you think.

Linda

There are a few gluten-free beers out there but not mainstream just yet. As a former beer drinker this is the thing I am having the most difficulty adjusting.

-Bard's Beer (http://www.bardsbeer.com) just recently launched a gluten-free beer but distribution is going to take some time.

-As mentioned Ramapo Valley Brewing (http://www.ramapovalleybrewery.com) also has a gluten-free beer. I've bought a few cases and it isn't too bad.

-Bi-Aglut, a beer in Italy which is gluten-free and while over there this past March I stopped into the Pharmacia (where it is sold) and ordered a few bottles. Interestingly, it is made by Heineken Italia, but marketed under the Heinz label. It is incredible and tastes very similiar to mainstream Heineken and uses buckwheat as the main ingredient. Unfortunately it is not availabe in the states. (http://www.biaglut.com/prodotti/Birra/default.aspx)

-In Quebec, the microbrewery La Messag

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
