Breaking Free from Gluten with Alcohol-Free Beer

Breaking Free from Gluten with Alcohol-Free Beer

For many people, the love affair with beer is real. There's nothing quite like cracking open a cold one after a long day or enjoying a refreshing brew with friends on a sunny afternoon. But for those with gluten sensitivities or Celiac disease, beer has been off-limits... until now.

Thanks to the rise of alcohol-free beer, anyone with gluten-free diets can now enjoy a cold beer without having to worry about experiencing negative health effects. Not only is this a game-changer for people with gluten sensitivities, but it's also a big win for the beer industry.

According to Coeliac-UK, “Around 1 in 100 people have coeliac disease, but many other conditions including non-coeliac gluten sensitivity also need a gluten free diet and it is now estimated that at least 10% of UK consumers are following this diet.”

In a world where progress knows no bounds and society thrives on embracing diversity, we can’t quite believe it took the alcohol-free movement to bring gluten free beer to the table. With over half a million people in the UK alone suffering with gluten sensitivities, this change was long overdue.

Why is this big news for the beer industry?

The gluten free beer movement encourages innovation in the brewing industry by pushing the boundaries of what's possible; revolutionising taste profiles and experimenting with new ingredients such as corn, rice, sorghum, buckwheat, millet, and quinoa. 

People are seeking more clarity with ingredients than ever before and are more conscientious about health. Future growth for gluten-free beer will come with demand, as well as from a growing understanding of the health problems associated with gluten.

By UK law, beer and food products can only be labelled as gluten free if it contains 20ppm or less of gluten. Research shows that this tiny amount of gluten is a safe level for all people following a gluten free diet. 

We proudly brew both our Lager and IPA to be gluten free, making our beer inclusive and accessible to everyone who fancies a night off the heavy stuff - no longer being denied the simple pleasures of a beer.
