Here at Aurochs Brewing, we encourage competition amongst beers and teamwork among breweries. To that end, we’d like to take a moment to tell you about some of the other gluten free beers available on the market. But, rather than bash or praise (because, let’s be honest, we’re a bit biased), we’d like to simply provide information on the beer that’s out there and let you make decisions for yourself. Like you, we too are in search of a truly great gluten-free beer.
In no particular order, except alphabetically by brewery:
Bard’s Tale Beer Company advertises themselves as the “Original Sorghum Malt Beer.” Founded by two celiacs, the brewer makes a flagship sorghum beer similarly called Bard’s, a slightly sweet American lager.
Dogfish Head, a craft brewery well known for their “off-centered stuff,” recently entered the gluten-free arena with their strawberry-flavored Tweason’ale. The beer is actually sorghum-based, but has a sweet, fruity flavor.
Green’s is a all gluten-free brewery based in England with three beer offerings in the US. They offer beers on the darker side, as compared to the other gluten-free breweries: Green’s Discovery, an English Strong Ale; Green’s Endeavor, a dark dubble; and Green’s Quest, another Belgian-style Tripel.
Harvester Brewing, a very recent addition to the gluten-free family, makes three styles of beer made from chestnuts, sorghum, and oats: a Pale Ale, a Dark Ale made from roasted chestnuts, and a seasonal Red Ale.
Lakefront Brewery, based in Milwaukee WI, offers many styles of beer, one of their most popular being the gluten-free New Grist, a fruit beer brewed from sorghum and rice.
New planet is an all gluten-free beer company based in Boulder, Co. As with Green’s, New Planet offers three separate gluten-free, sorghum-based beers: the Tread Lightly Ale, the fruitier 3R Raspberry Ale, and the hoppy Off Grid Pale Ale.
Redbridge, brewed by Anheuser-Busch, is a sorghum-based lager and one of the first widely available gluten-free beers.
Saint Peter’s launched a gluten-free Sorghum Beer, or G-Free, a German-style pilsner.
