Join Full Throttle Bottles for a tasting of gluten-free beers tonight in Georgetown.

Georgetown, WA – In the past few years we’ve gotten an increase in requests for Gluten Free beer. Which is actually much harder to make than you would think! Rather than have me try to explain exactly what it is or why some people are either allergic to it or simply feel better without it in their diets, here’s a link to a site appropriately called “What is Gluten?”. Now you may or may not know that all ciders are naturally gluten free, but sometimes you just get a craving for a BEER! So now is your chance to taste some of the available gluten free beers and pick your favorite! And even if you’re NOT gluten intolerant, come try these! We’ll be trying three imports and two domestics!
Green’s Endeavor Dubble Ale: The dubbel style originated in Belgium, possibly as a “second style” offered for sale by monastic breweries. Green’s Endeavour Dubbel is the world’s first version of this style made with no barley. In the classic dubbel fashion, this brew has a hint of dark-sugar and toffee flavor; and a traditional Belgian yeast bouquet. Makes a fine aperitif; also great with traditional Italian antipasto, soft cheeses, gluten-free baked goods and Belgian-style “pomme frites.” 7.0% ABV
Green’s Discovery Amber Ale: A diagnosis of celiac disease led the founder of Green’s to improved health, but also a desire for fine full-flavored beers. Green’s Discovery Amber Ale was developed in collaboration with the respected DeProef Brewery, in Lochristi, Belgium. Made with millet, sorghum, rice and buckwheat – no wheat or barley – it is fermented with a classic strain of Belgian ale yeast. Medium-bodied with subtle caramel and nut flavor nuances. Refined, herbal hop aroma and finish. Served best with fresh fruit, breakfast cassarole at brunch, baked potatoes, rice dishes, chicken or fuller-flavored fish.
New Grist: New Grist is an all-sorghum beer, brewed from sorghum and gluten-free yeast grown on molasses. This light bodied Celiac-safe beer can be called “barley-free,” and is a great beer for those who need to live on restricted diets due to intolerance to gluten, a protein found in common brewing grains such as barley, wheat, rye, oats, spelt, kamut and triticale. 5% ABV
Red Bridge: Redbridge is made without wheat or barley, so the approximately 3.2 million consumers who are unable to drink beer made with barley due to Celiac Disease or because they follow a wheat-free or gluten-free diet can once again enjoy a great tasting beer. Redbridge is a rich, full-bodied lager brewed from sorghum for a well-balanced, moderately hopped taste.
St. Peter’s: Aclean, crisp gluten-free ale with a pilsner style lager finish and aromas of citrus and mandarin from American Amarillo hops.  4.2% ABV

We will be tasting these on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 from 5-7pm. Only $3 or bring your own non-plastic or non-paper glass to be GREEN and save $1!
Thanks, Erika & Crew
