It’s St. Patrick’s Day!! And for some reason, this Feast of the Church is often celebrated with beer. I’m not a beer drinker. Even before I went gluten free, I thought beer tasted a little bit like sour gym socks. So, I have no edgy gluten free beer reviews or super creative gluten free beer recipes. But just because I don’t have them, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! I’ve put together some gluten free beer reviews, recipes and resources to help you celebrate your favorite Irish Saint.
Forewarned is forearmed.
Why drink beer when you can cook with it?
What about Omission Beer? Is it safe for Celiacs?
Wow, the Celiac Sprue Association’s endorsement of Omission Beer, a beer made with Barley but with the gluten removed, stirred up a whole lot of controversy. Is gluten removed beer really gluten free? Almost every blogger had a take on this one.
