At Beerhunter, we believe that beer is for everyone, and we don’t want anyone to miss out! If you’re worried about drinking pints because you’re on a gluten-free diet, or if you’re strictly coeliac, we’re here to quell any concerns.
You needn’t reach for a different beverage, like a cider or a gin and tonic, because there is a huge range of free-from beers available to you. Dive into this blog post to discover what beers are gluten-free.
How Can Beer Be Gluten-free?
It’s common knowledge that one of the main ingredients in beer is grains (such as wheat and barley), which is exactly what you need to avoid if you’re staying away from gluten. In that case, how can a brew ever be free from it? Well, it’s simple really; brewers will do one of two things.
They may use an alternative grain, making the drink naturally gluten and wheat-free. Or, during production, they will add in an enzyme to remove any trace of gluten – it’s a tried and tested method!
What Beers Are Gluten-free?
Thanks to these new and improved brewing techniques, there’s now an entire selection of styles to choose from. So, no matter what your favourite kind of beer is, you’ll always be able to crack open a can or two without a care in the world.
If you prefer a glass of pale ale, you can find a whole family of gluten-free beverages to suit your tastes. Sample a blonde ale from the likes of GREEN’s or First Chop, before tasting an IPA or an amber ale. On the other hand, if lively lager is your thing, then opt for a pack of Daura Damm.
More and more breweries are adding alternative products to their ranges, meaning that there might be a gluten-free beer right under your nose. For example, BrewDog is a popular brand across the UK that offers an extensive choice of tipples. You can grab a case of their Vagabond American pale ale, which is not only full of hops and citrus flavours but wonderfully gluten-free.
Just remember to check the label on any bottle before you purchase it so that you can be certain that it’s gluten-free. Look out for the easy-to-spot crossed grain symbol, and you’ll know it’s suitable for you.
As you can see, there’s simply nothing standing in your way! Browse our incredible selection of bottles and quench your thirst, today.
