Gluten-Free Beers, Anyone?

Close up for beer being poured in a pint glass.

Have you ever had a gluten-free beer that tasted amazing? While that may seem like a trick question, the truth is that gluten-free beers have come a long way, to the point where you can drink most varieties without having to hold back a grimace, and the finer options are nigh-indistinguishable from your favorite regular beers/ The trick, however, is in tracking down the right brands, which is what we’ll be helping you out with today. If you’re thinking about stocking up your spot at the NYC apartments for rent with some new brews, consider some of these gluten-free options that actually impress.

The Best Of Gluten-Free Beer

First thing to note is that gluten-free beer falls under a fairly strict definition, being that it must contain less than 20 ppm (parts per million) as far is its gluten content is concerned (also note that this definition applies only to the US, Canada, and Europe — Australian GF beer must have zero detectable gluten). While these leaves rye and barley based beers on the table, they have to be crafted in a way that leaves the gluten out of the finished product. More commonly, though, you’ll find gluten-free beer crafted from rice, buckwheat, corn, sorghum, and millet, all of which contain no gluten at all.

So where will you find these gluten-free beers that retain their worthwhile taste? According to Thrillist, the past few years have shown an explosion in what’s truly possible with gluten-free options:

“In the past few years, tremendous strides have been made in crafting gluten-free beers that don't skimp on flavor. For beer lovers with gluten issues, that means all the great flavor of beer can now be had without a chaser of crippling illness.”

  • Ghostfish Brewing Shrouded Summit Witbier
