gluten-free Beers Which Taste Most Like Coors Light Or Michelob Light?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The only thing I can find locally is Moosehead "beer" which is actually hard cider with carbonation?

The liquor store told me to call them with the kind I want & they will see if they can get it for us. So for you beer lovers which one in your opinion comes closest to tasting like Coors light or Michelob light?

New Planet Tread Lightly.

I've tried that one and Redbridge. I prefer the New Planet a bit but it's more expensive (4pk - $8).

The ciders are growing on me... granny smith Woodchuck - yum!

OOPS! I think I got confused & it is Woodchuck. LOL! Woodchuck..... Moosehead.... can you see how my thought process was running?laugh.giflaugh.gif

Thanks Christine! The hubs likes beer --- I'm not a big fan. We both know he will not like the cider stuff. IH said her hubs likes the New Planet too.

The Redbridge was not a big hit in our house.

He said Yuck, this tastes like Bud light. Meaning he does not like it. :lol:

He brews his own, but

He likes:

Bards

Green's

New Planet

New Grist

Woodchuck (aka Moosehead? :lol: good one, squirmy)

I have to say it: Back in the day, I didn't consider Coors Light to taste anything at all like REAL beer.

Your hubs brews gluten-free beer? How??? I used to love making homebrew but I didn't know it was possible gluten-free.

It is indeed possible! My cuz and his wife did it too.

We had to replace some of the brewing equipment, obviously (like copper wiring) but yup, we did it! Pretty good too.

PM me if you want me to have him tell you what he did.

Thanks for the link. I will check them out tomorrow. Today is shot. I have no mind for decisions this evening. Already made too many of those today.

I doubt I'm the only one interested. B) Maybe you could share it for the board?

Coors Light is panther piss. Anyone who thinks it is beer is obviously suffering from neurological issues--brain fog--caused by gluten.

:lol: I'll second that. See-through beer is for wussies. I really miss a good pint of Guinness. Not the wretched bottled stuff either. A properly poured nitrogen tap pint from a fresh keg. The Green's Endeavor dubbel is the closest I can come now.

Amen to that, sister!

I think you will understand how much I am loved when I tell you hubs gave up his beloved Guinness voluntarily when he went gluten-free with me. My big Irish guy--his life- blood!! :)

There is nothing like having one in a pub in Ireland. Even I drank a half pint with my lunch every day.

It took F O R E V E R for that head to die down. :lol: It is a 20 minute delay from asking for it and getting it to your lips. You chat ....and wait.

When you are halfway down the pint, you order the next one because it will take a while for it to arrive. :lol:

No one gets impatient waiting for it, because they know it will be the best sip they have ever had. Hubs calls it "mother's milk".

I'll ask him to put his notes for the ale together and we'll post it.

I am surprised no one has done it on here already--some directions are on the internet, I think?

Your hubs brews gluten-free beer? How??? I used to love making homebrew but I didn't know it was possible gluten-free.

Here you are! Since you have already done this, I provided his notes too. :)

I made the following changes to my existing beer brewing equipment:

Replaced fermentation lock, bottling tip, caps, racking cane, tubing, bottle and carboy brushes and spoon for stirring wort.

Replaced copper cooling coil and tubing piece with drilled holes ( 20 holes 1/16 inch) for aeration. Replaced activated charcoal and hydrogen peroxide for aeration set up.

Cleaned SS 10 gallon pot several times. Used (in separate cleanings) Bartenders Friend and B-Bright with plastic scouring pads. Carboys washed repeatedly with B-Brite and clean water rinse and sanitized with Clorox in water solution (2 Tbls. per gallon of water and soak for approx 15 minutes. )

At Hennessey

Thanks! Sorghum syrup makes sense! I wonder if my local homebrew supply has it. I wonder if there is enough tyramine in homebrew to make me sick? :huh: Drat. I'm not used to worrying about stuff other than gluten.

Yes, I hardly ever drink beer so I didn't think of it but it is on all the tyramine lists. Red wine is really hard on me and fermented things like yogurt, sauerkraut, and miso are a no-go.

Sorry, hon. Save the recipe. Maybe in time, you can tolerate it once more? I have my fingers crossed for us all.

I can't do red wine anymore and a nice Amarone was my favorite :(

Sometimes, this does suck.

    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
