Gluten Free Beer

A few years ago, I discovering that I have a gluten intolerance (not Celiacs disease) and I began to realize all the things I just couldn't consume anymore. One of those things was beer! I hated knowing that on a hot summer's day, I no longer could come home from work and crack open an ice cold beer, and sit back on the balcony and enjoy. However, that is no longer! Our local liquor stores carry a few varieties for gluten free beer for our consuming pleasure.  They are a little expensive, but hopefully worth it for those beer connoisseur.  I plan to pick up a case of each by summer time and conduct my very own taste test! Sorry, no assistance is require. 

New Grist - 14.99/6 pack
Bard's Tale Gold - $15.77/6 pack
La Messagere - $19.81/6 pack

If you are looking for more gluten free beers, I scooped a contact list from listing gluten free beer makers. Our local liquor store is more than happy to accept requests for special orders, however there is a minimum quantity required to bring in the product. Cheers!
