It's been awhile since I've devoted space to the celiac dining experience (though I have been busy compiling new favorites for my gluten-friendly restaurant list!) Luckily, though, it seems others are taking care of that for me--today's Sunday Globe ran a great article on gluten-free beer.
Now, I know GF beer has been around for awhile--I've even tried a few brands, despite being more of a cider girl myself--but what is important about this is that the beer, Redbridge, is prodcued by Anheuser-Busch. In other words, we're mainstream! Gluten-free options for the millions of Americans living with celiac disease have come a long way since the dark days of even a decade ago, when no one had heard of the disease and grocery store shelves were lined only with forbidden foods. We've seen gluten-free pretzels and breads, gluten-free baking mixes and soy sauces, etc--it makes sense that to open up the gluten-free market to include alcohol. Cheers!
