Redbridge Gluten Free Beer Review

Redbridge is my gluten free beer of choice; this delicious, high quality beer is the perfect recommendation for anyone transitioning to a gluten free life.

This beer is made from sorghum, a safe grain for those allergic to wheat or gluten, and no cross-contamination takes place in the brewing process to preserve its purity. Redbridge beer has a rich, well-balanced flavor that goes down smooth.

The price was very reasonable ($8.99) for a six-pack of gluten free beer. I personally enjoy drinking this beer right out of the bottle more than the glass. For some reason when I drink this beer out of a glass it doesn’t taste as full-bodied compared to the bottle.

This beer reminds me a lot of many traditional gluten lagers such as Heinekan. There is a moderately hopped taste to this beer with a smooth, crisp finish. I’m hoping someday Redbridge could come out with a cheap, mass produced gluten free beer.

One thing I really enjoy about Redbridge, besides their beer, is that Redbridge and the non-profit National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) are working together to build a partnership to increase awareness of Celiac Disease, and funding dedicated to finding a cure for Celiac Disease.

Pair this beer with Gluten Free BBQ Chicken Pizza for your friends and family, and you just can’t go wrong. Enjoy–responsibly!
