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.
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.
