Taste Test: Gluten-Free Beers
Go Against The Grain!
Show some love to your gluten-free guests -- and shock everyone else -- with these five gluten-free brews that beat even the conventional ones that were thrown in as decoys.
Green's Discovery Amber Ale
Technically amber, this brew reminded us of even darker ales with its bold blend of millet, buckwheat, rice and sorghum (all gluten-free grains).
Made from malted barley that's deglutenized during the brewing process, then tested for any stowaway gluten, this lager is light and lemony -- and tasty!
Harvester Brewing IPA
With nuttiness from roasted chestnuts, creaminess from g-free oats and a bit of bite from hops, this IPA was the beer that got finished off fastest.
New Planet Amber Ale
A medium-bodied blend of sorghum, brown-rice extract and molasses, with yummy caramel and citrus notes, this amber ale goes especially well with dessert.
Fans of light and smooth wheat brews loved this fruity, crisp malted-sorghum lager -- the brainchild of two gluten- intolerant beer geeks.
