Description

If you are one of the 2 million Americans who suffer from celiac disease, trying craft beers may seem impossible, or at least challenging. But with the growing interest in gluten-free options, many people have found that they no longer have to miss out on enjoying craft beer. Many brewers have recognized the desire for gluten-free customers to enjoy their beer without the concern of ingesting gluten, leading many craft brewers to utilize alternative grains during the brewing process that do not contain gluten. Dedicated gluten-free breweries have also found success catering to people dealing with gluten intolerance as well as healthminded beer drinkers who choose to follow a gluten-reduced or gluten-free diet, but don’t want to give up their favorite beverage. Gluten-Free Beer Barley, wheat, oats, rye and spelt are the ingredients that most breweries use to brew the beers that the world has come to love. These ingredients commonly contain gluten, so people who suffer from celiac disease must look for other fermentables to be featured in gluten-free beer. Many craft breweries who make gluten-free beers have turned to malted sorghum and buckwheat, which are grains that do not contain gluten to brew beers for their gluten-averse customers. Gluten-Free Craft Beers in America People have dealt with the effects of celiac disease since the mid-1800s, but the grains responsible for the condition weren’t discovered until the 1940s. Brewers began brewing craft beers in the United States in the mid-1960s, and that path has eventually led to the creation of gluten-free craft beers. Several craft brewers across the United States have brewed reduced-gluten and gluten-free craft beers so that everyone of age can be a part of the craft beer community
