Gluten-Full to Gluten-Free

Many of my readers are gluten-full :) eaters/drinkers, but I also have gluten-free readers and I know many of you have friends and family that don’t eat gluten. For those that gave gluten up later in life, you may still struggle with giving up beer :) At least, that would be the hardest thing for me to let go!

Of course, there is always wine and liquor that can still be enjoyed but there is something about a nice cold beer on a hot day that cannot be replaced :D

Lots of bars now have cider beers and so there is somewhat of an alternative but cider is not beer. Most ciders taste too sweet to me though I have had some good ones, like GrassHOP-AH by the Colorado Cider Company, but there is still a big difference.

New Planet and Estrella Damm Daura are two gluten-free beers that are pretty tasty but a while back my parents discovered Omission Beer. It actually tastes like beer!

Omission has figured out a way to brew beer with all the normal ingredients (yeast, malt, and hops) but then they use a proprietary process to remove the gluten. Samples from each batch of beer are sent out to a labratory for testing. Beer is not shipped out until tests are returned and their beer is always well below the 20 ppm, which is the international standard for gluten free.

Omission currently brews a lager and a pale ale. The lager is light and refreshing while the pale ale has more hops. Of course, since I am a hophead, I am partial to the pale ale but both are great choices to satisfy that beer craving. Check out Omission to learn more and to see if it is at a location near you.

  1. I tried Dogfish Tweason’ale the other day. The I’m not sure about it, the strawberry was not all there and there was weird aftertaste of fiber. The search goes on…

    • Yes, and please do tell me how it turns out! I think it would provide different flavors than a dark beer but the lager might add a nice touch.

    • Do tell them! It is very interesting how beer plays a role in our society..it really does= connect people and I understand how someone could feel left out if they don’t drink beer.

  2. I was listening to a nutritionist on talk back radio yesterday trying to help a beer lover who needed advice on gluten-free beer. Such a coincidence.
