Gluten-Free Beers You’ve Gotta Try

Whether gluten messes with your gut or you’ve given up grains out of an allegiance to the wildly popular Paleo diet, these seven alterna-brews are worth a taste.

At the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, New Planet Brown snagged the silver medal in the gluten-free beer category, and we’re kind of excited about the Boulder-based brewery’s current lineup of sorghum-based brews. Although your girlfriend might be more into the sweeter suds than you are, here’s what’s on tap: a smooth blonde ale made with orange peel; a raspberry ale made with fruit puree; and a traditional, hoppy American-style pale ale made with molasses. “During regular and blind samplings across the country, our Pale Ale is often remarked on as being equivalent in taste to regular barley-based Pale,” notes New Planet founder Pedro Gonzalez. Two new flavors—Amber Ale and Belgian Ale—will be rolled out in late spring. Also, a portion of New Planet’s profits go toward cleaning up the environment. We’ll cheers to that.
