With the rise of gluten intolerance and celiac disease worldwide, beer masters and craft brewers around the world have decided the beer industry needs to produce delicious and tasty gluten free beer options.
Typically, anyone on a gluten free diet is limited to only drinking wine, a few select spirits and liquors, and hard ciders. But now, they have the option to not only drink gluten free beer, but also drink really tasty gluten free beer.
A sorghum-based craft beer that’s made with no wheat, barley, oats, or rye.

A pale ale and crisp lager made with Citra hops for just a little touch of tropical complexity. But if there’s one thing you should know about this beer is that it’s made with a low protein barley that’s treated with a special enzyme that breaks down proteins and gluten. So because of this, they can’t be labeled as gluten free beer. But it’s still pretty good!
