Don’t be. They’re shite.

There’s a great pub near me called The Sultan. They’re owned by Hop Back and do a couple of gluten free cask ales. And bottled ones. Crop Circle is great.

I didn’t realise Fantasma was gluten free. If so I might pick him one up, understandably he’s really down about it.


#2864

Yeah, hopefully they still have it available, it was delish:


#2865

I don’t think I’ve ever paid more for Heineken than I would’ve for any other equivalently bad lager. Also only ever get cans if I’m buying that kind of lager so the light-skunkiness is moot. I’d rather have Tyskie or similar but sometimes you don’t want to be wasted and have a terrible hangover.


#2866

Doesn’t appear to be anywhere in London and kinda ran out of time to get it in Berlin yesterday, ach well!


#2867

All of Redwell brewery beers are gluten free, and their pilsner, west coast IPA, kofra stout and steam lagers are all lovely


#2868

Norwich represent :heart:


#2869

I never knew that… their website isn’t very clear about it.


#2870

This suggests that it’s just the stout that’s gluten free?

#2871

Might be wrong about the pilsner if that pic is the lot… but pretty sure the redwell dude told me it was GF…

(Mikeller has a good line in GF too, think they do a peter pale and mary GF version… also if your mate likes sweet stuff, get him on the hopped mead)


#2872

Oh and Estrella Daura damm is GF and is pretty decent imo


#2873

Oh this is interesting. I’ll pass the info on.


#2874

Omission are available in most M&S branches and we have a small range of GF own brand beers. a Belgian pilsner, Belgian golden ale and and Kent IPA


#2875

Peroni do one too if we’re talking Big Beers. there’s also that Celia brand I’ve seen around quite a bit which I think is owned by Carlsberg.


#2876

Yes, the Redwell stuff is lovely.


#2877

Been a bit of talk here about the big brands redoing brand/packing - think this is nicely done by Carlsberg.


#2878

Never even heard of Carlsberg Black Gold before.

I thought these limited edition cans they did were quite cool, remember lots of jokes at the time about “looking forward to trying the new Cloudwater DIPA”

I noticed Fosters have had a recent tweak to make it more “vintage” as well.


#2879

Me neither, but the crest makes it look like something that was around in the 70s or something. I dig it.


#2880

Drygate Pilsner is a bit naff but GF. As is…williams bros caesear Augustus, I think. That’s an IPA/lager hybrid but more lagery I’d say. Though these are probably less readily available down near you.

But like pointed out above Fantasma is probably the best one. I usually keep an eye out because a couple of friends are in similar position. Can ask them if you want?

First Chop have one called Ava and there stuff is supposed to be decent.
