Gluten free beer

Recommended Posts

Help and advice please with my quest to be able to enjoy a little beer without spending so much time in the bathroom later...

I read old forums and my friend Google, and it seems that Beer Lao White is made from rice and millet so is gluten free.

Also that Kirin light and Corona both have less gluten so may be ok.

Sure I can do trial and error, but the errors are such a trial.

So, any others gluten intolerants found beers that work for them please? And/or where to buy the 3 above in CM. I have yet to look in Rimping where they seem to stock non main stream beers.

Not sure yet if Wishbeer in Bangkok will ship gf beer to CM, but maybe there are local options.

Happily there is more gluten free food stuff around here now, but I don't want to resort to Homebrew beer . Yet.

An update. No sign of fantasma at Rimping but they have beer Lao (rice beer) Ukorn maize beer, Kirin low gluten, and tsingtao low gluten. Also corona but at 155 for a very small bottle I will not be trying that. Also other specialist beers I am checking out as the ingredients aren't on the label.

Maybe this will help others caught up in this gluten free thing.

Your original post does not say why you suffer with gluten? Have you got tested for Coeliac Disease or do you have what is commonly known as Leaky Gut Syndrome?

 

If your gut is hypersensitive to Gluten you are likely going to react to all grains including (to a lesser extent) Maize and Rice. Wheat and Barley will really have an effect.

 

You will probably also get problems from Dairy and Soy.

Why beer?  Go for white spirits mixed with Sprite.  NO gluten in that drink and plenty cheap.

Thanks. Not a bad idea tho I would opt for tonic over sugary soda. Just my taste. But maybe a long chilled white wine with Sprite top might hit the spot too.

Btw, found the Kirin 100% malt too malty. I guess the clue is in the name although I thought that was to do with production methods. Try beer Lao later....
