It's called La Messagere. 4.7% alcohol.. Made in Quebec. I got it at the local liquor board store...the company started selling out of Quebec just a couple months ago. Liek I said, it cost me a lot...$78 for 24 bottles..Probably depends how far away you live from the source..Hope it helps!

Hmmm, I must have got a good deal... picked up 48 in Riviere du Loup for about $100 with tax.

First tried it in summer 2003.

Mine was probably so expensive because the store in town doesnt regularily stock it--it had to be special ordered for me :P

It cost me 19 bucks for a six pack too. It's as good as it gets for gluten free though, so I just put up with the cost. I spend less time at bars and pubs now too, so I justify the savings there on the beer.

The Ontario government stores (LCBO) listed it a while back, but until today I had not seen any. I have been checking regularly. But this aftermoon I was in a store I have only been to a couple of times before, and they had it. $16.95 for a case of 6. I bought a case, and it is chilling in my fridge now. I'll post a review after I have tried it, which will be soon :P:D;)

I had some that expired in June and I drank it just this week and it didnt kill me haha. The only thing that went bad with it is it really lost almost all its fizz, tasted a little bitter almost, but I didnt get sick at all, so yeah you can still live if you drink it a month after expiry ;)

I tried it this afternoon, and was quite pleased. It is a very nice beer. The hops are distinct but not overpowering, and it does not have the sweet taste I remember of many Canadian traditional barley-based beers (such as Molson Canadian-like sticking your face in a bouquet of flowers :( ). La Messagere is delightful. I am also pleased that is low in carbohydrates. After nearly five years without a beer, with beer being the one thing I most missed from before going gluten-free, I have found a beer I can drink and that I like! Today is a good day!

:D

:P I just discovered it last month myself. If you're travelling in Quebec, it is made at a beautiful Inn (link: www.lebaluchon.com ) The Inn is near Mt. Tremblant (south east I think?) and North of Montreal. Anyone in Toronto could buy La Messagere at Bayview Village LCBO (and probably others). Love it.

My brother was so nice to tell me that he's going to try out gluten-free recipies for me with his distillery. He lives in Salt Lake and the regular beer is just as expensive as the gluten-free stuff is everywhere else! I'm doing the little happy dance just thinking about it! :D

    • I don't see any gluten   
    • I am not sure where you got your statistics?  It seems a bit misleading. Of course, if many people are tested, not all of them have Celiac.  For example, my non-symptomatic kids get tested every few years and it is always negative.  I think the statistics to check are the tests accuracy.  The current blood tests are quite accurate. People with DH don't always have enough antibodies in the bloods to test positive (another statistic you could look up).    But all the doctor has to do is properly test the DH rash to confirm Celiac.  
    • I have checked statistics and over 80% of those tested for celiac come out negative, so it is a difficult thing to prove to begin with.   My test came out negative too, but I know I have dermatitis herpetiformis, my doctor diagnosed me even without an official test.   After I cut out gluten I felt like a totally new person, so to me that is proof enough.     I just went with my instinct and cut it out anyway even tho nothing was 100% proven, and I feel So much better!
    • Has the sister with thyroid issues been tested? Celiac and hypo or hashi's tend to go hand in hand. And for that matter you should be tested too. Celiac is a genetic issue. good luck!
    • Since you have to wait 2-4 weeks for the  endoscopy and you have to be having gluten for it, I'd go enjoy the July trip and then go gluten free after. If you're currently on a meat, potato, and veggies diet then relax because this is gonna be easy. If not you might want to switch to a meat, veggies, and potatoes diet at least for a while.   So here's what I found out regarding food:
      Note: insert the words "gluten free" in every item mentioned as some of the companies also sell non gluten free stuff. It's tedious to write that phrase all the time. Get a chest freezer to store all of your frozen gluten-free foods. Makes things easier. Bread: Canyon bakehouse without question is the most realistic tasting bread.
        Schar comes in a close second.
          Canyon bakehouse plain bagels are practically indistinguishable from regular bagels.
          Canyon bakehouse white bread makes fantastic toast. It has a very slight
                       sweet taste to it. My friend says it tastes like normal bread. The
                       only difference to me is the sweetness.
          Canyon bakehouse deli rye is great if you like rye bread sandwiches. Toasted is best.
          Canyon bakehouse multigrain tastes exactly like multigrain bread and does not need
                       to be toasted.
          Schar baguettes are fantastic.
          Katz makes an English muffin that, after toasted, reminds me of a real one provided
                       it has stuff on it like butter. I think that's the brand.
          Etalia has a good boule (sp?) if you prefer artisan bread. Pizza crust:
          Shar makes a good thick and chewy crust.
          Udis makes a good thin and crispy crust.
          Etalia makes a great New York crust. Pasta:
          Barilla makes the only good pasta that I know of. Spaghetti cooks the best.
          RP has a frozen pasta that I'm going to try next. Flour:
          Pamelas all-purpose flour is great for making gravy and batter for fried foods. Cereal:
          Envirokidz Gorilla Munch cereal is an equivalent to corn Pops. Cookies:
          Glutino and Kinnikinnik make a decent Oreo equivalent.
          Mi Del makes a great ginger snap.
          Goodie Girl mint slims - fantastic girl scout mint cookie equivalent Cake:
          Betty Crocker chocolate cake tastes the same, but you have to get the time
                      exactly right. It is a very small window of time. Too long and it's too dry. Frozen meals:
          Udi's Chicken Florentine is addictive and Broccoli Kale lasagna is a good white lasagna. Restaurants (not from personal experience, just from research)
          Chinese – PF Changs. Employees are supposedly trained in gluten free.
          Burgers – In N Out. The only thing here that is not gluten free are the
                      buns so it is very easy for them to do gluten free. They are
                      also trained in it. They are only out west. Road Trip!
          Outback steakhouse. Employees are supposedly trained in gluten free. How
                      good they are depends on where you live.   If you are willing to cook from scratch it's fairly easy to make a good gluten free equivalent to your favorite foods.
