Gluten Free Beer

Over the past few years more and more people are converting to a gluten free diet. This is a diet that eliminates the gluten protiens that can be found in wheat, barley, rye, ect… When people convert to this type of diet, they have to cut out a lot of items from their diet. They are no longer able to eat a lot of the things that they used to. However, beer is no longer one of those things that they have to eliminate from their diet. The beer industry has started to brew gluten free beers. They may not be in your local supermarket but there are some out there for those who are gluten free.

Some people maybe skeptical to try one of these gluten free beers but there is no reason to be timid about trying one. Instead of the barley and wheat that normal beers are brewed with, gluten free beers are brewed with ingrediants such as brown rice,sweet potato, molasses, chesnuts and sorgum. These ingrediants may not produce the taste of the beers you were used to drinking, but they are just as good.

If you are gluten free and looking for a brew that you are able to drink, I have listed a few in this post.

1) Harvester Fresh Hop IPA ( produced by Haverster Brewing Company)
2) Dogfish Head Tweason’Ale (produced by Dogfish Head)
3)Omission Pale Ale( produced by Wildmer Brothers)

Like I said they may not be in your local supermarket but if you want to try them you can definitely find them. I hope all of you with a gluten free diet are willing to try these beers.
