  • Gluten Free Beer · 6.0% ABV

    We armed the beer with a hefty dose of exotic Equinox hops, lending breezy guava, papaya and stone fruits to a wash of sweet, slightly herbal malt flavors.

    When we decided to create a beer for beer lovers watching their gluten intake, we started experimenting with gluten-free beer grains like quinoa, millet, sorghum and rice. While the resulting flavors were interesting, beers made with these grains tasted just like the grain from which they were produced — not the same flavor we have come to expect from beer made using barley malt. Lucky for us there is another way to produce gluten-reduced beer made with grains that contain gluten. This method involves the use of an enzyme – a protein with a specific function – that breaks down gluten into smaller fragments. We add this enzyme in the brewing process and analyze the finished beer in the lab using the industry-supported R5 Competitive ELISA method. This creates a beer with all of the barley malt-derived flavor without all the gluten. [More fine print: Per the TTB, there is not yet a scientifically valid method for testing gluten in fermented products.]
