New Grist Gluten-Free Pilsner
The first gluten-free beer to be approved by the US Government, New Grist from Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee is a combination of sorghum, rice, hops, water, and yeast. It contains 5.1% alcohol and 166 calories per 12 ounces. With a crisp and fruity undertone, this "sessionable" brew goes great with grilled vegetables and fish or ground turkey and quinoa stuffed peppers.
Redbridge Gluten-Free Lager
This American Red Lager contains 4% alcohol and 127 calories per 12 ounces. Made from malted sorghum, this gluten-free beer has the flavor of crisp apples and honey with a toasted malt finish. The crispness of this beer makes it perfect to cut through a rich and creamy dish such as Linguini Chicken Carbonara.
New Belgium Glutiny Golden Ale
Made from a variety of malts and hops, this "gluten-reduced" beer contains a piney, citrusy (think lemon candy), and grassy watermelon rind aroma with a lightly sweet taste and slight bitter finish. Try it with Chicken Caesar Salad or Pepper Jack Cheese. Glutiny Golden Ale contains 5.2% alcohol and 160 calories per 12 ounces; however, this beer may also contain some gluten, so if you're very sensitive to gluten, skip it.
Omission Pale Ale
Amber in color with a piney, citrusy aroma, this pale ale has a rich, caramel-like, and malty taste with a crisp finish. It pairs great with toasted sesame rice, but when it comes to gluten, there's a disclaimer to share: Even though this beer is crafted to remove gluten, it may still contain gluten. The brewers post gluten analysis results for certain batches on their website at omissionbeer.com.
