Dogfish Head – Gluten-Free

27 Dec

 

Nothing makes us sadder than the realization that some people can not enjoy beer for medical reasons. Celiac Disease is no joke.  It damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy.¹ Fortunately for those diagnosed with celiac disease, they can treat the symptoms of celiac and heal the vili in the lining of the intestines by eating a gluten-free diet.²  Gluten is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.  The same base ingredients of our favorite beverage, BEER!

Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, Delaware has listened to the cries of the gluten-free masses and created its Tweasonale.  Coming to shelves late January 2012, this “fruit-foward” gluten-free beer will be released 4 times per year to satisfy the hop cravings of more than 3 million diagnosed Americans³.  You don’t have to be on a gluten free diet to enjoy gluten free beer either. After all it’s still…Beer!
