Allergies and intolerances are common, albeit very inconvenient for many people. Most vendors do what they can to accommodate customers’ dietary restrictions, but if you have a beer lover with gluten intolerance, what is there to do?
It turns out that many breweries have taken this into account and now cater to gluten-intolerant beer aficionados. Check out these fantastic gluten-free and gluten-reduced beers you can order for your bar or business to keep a great option on tap for those gluten-free patrons – or just anyone looking for a new and different beer taste!
New Belgium Glutiny Pale Ale
New Belgium Glutiny Pale Ale is a gluten-reduced release, as Bon Appétit notes. This makes it unlike most traditional beers, thanks to the inclusion of special enzymes that help break down gluten. This beer also has a hint of pine, florals and tropical notes, which makes it not as bitter as an IPA, but still a good choice for those who enjoy the flavor of wheat beers.
Omission Beer specializes in making gluten-reduced brews. A spun off division of the Widmer Brothers Brewing Company, the brewery offers a lager, pale ale and IPA catered to drinkers looking for options with less gluten content than traditional beers. Like the New Belgium Pale Ale, Omission’s beers include an enzyme to break down gluten. Whether you prefer the lager, which Bon Appétit praises for its crisp and slightly tropical taste, or their IPA, which The Beer Diaries calls balanced and easy to drink with notes of citrus, tropical fruit and caramel, you’ll find a great taste with Omission.
When it comes to gluten-free beer, there’s none more popular than Anheuser-Busch’s Redbridge Lager. Made from sorghum – meaning no gluten – this beer has a great mixture of hops, fruits and grain-infused flavor, notes Men’s Fitness, and is sure to taste great on any gluten-adverse drinker’s palate. If you’re looking to start or grow your gluten-free options, Redbridge is a great addition to any beer lineup.
