10 Days of Gluten-Free, Shopping Day 9

Headed out for a party? Perhaps you want to pick up some drinks at the store to bring with you to a fun event?

If you cannot consume gluten (or choose not to) then most traditional beers must be avoided as they are derived from barley. Fortunately, a lot of companies are now making gluten-free beers from buckwheat, millet, sorghum and rice. Champagne and wine are naturally gluten-free. However, since companies can sneak in additives, I encourage you to contact the manufacturer directly to confirm that the product is gluten-free.

Many popular alcohols are gluten-free, such as gin, Japanese sake, rum, vodka (when derived from corn, potato or quinoa) and tequila. Additionally, Microbreweries are rapidly catering to the demand for gluten-free beers so be sure to check out local companies as you might find some great drinks near you!

Below is a list of  some companies that produce Gluten-free beers and spirits:

Bard’s Tale Beer

Chopin Vodka

Green’s Gluten-Free Beers

Lakefront Brewery

New Planet

FAIR Quinoa Vodka

Ramapo Valley Brewery

Redbridge Beer (produced by Anheuser-Busch)

Sprecher Brewery

St. Peter’s Brewery
