About Gluten Free Lager

About Gluten Free Lager
Brewed from non-gluten containing cereals such as rice, sorghum, buckwheat, and corn, these beers were originally brewed for the small, but growing portion of the population intolerant to gluten. Gluten-free lagers commonly range between 4-5.5% in alcohol with further variations depending on interpretations of the style. Celiac disease affects roughly 1% of the US population, thus completely removing beer brewed from barley, rye, and wheat from their diet. This category is not defined by style, but instead by the portion of gluten found in the beer. While any lager style may theoretically be brewed as a gluten-free beer, most lagers in this category closely resemble gluten-free interpretations of pale and amber lager styles. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Lakefront New Grist, Redbridge and Green’s Enterprise Dry-Hopped Lager.
