Gluten Free Beer

Gluten Free Beers available in North America

Beer usually uses Barley as it’s base ingredient which means that it contains gluten and is not safe for Celiacs to drink.

Around the world standards of “gluten free” vary. For example, in the United Kingdom a beer with less than 20 parts per million gluten (20ppm) is “gluten free”, while in Australia only beers with no detectable gluten can be described as gluten free. (source Wikipedia)

Richard R: If ever in Portland,Oregon you gotta try Deschutes Brewery. The GF beer is on tap and you can buy a growler. Try it and then let them know you want to see it bottled.
