Sorghum, also called milo and jowar, is a cereal grain used for a wide variety of gluten free mixes, beers and products.
Sorghum originated in Africa about 5000 years ago, where there is a rich tradition of brewing beer made from sorghum. Gluten free beers made with sorghum have recently become more popular in the gluten free market, since brewers have found sorghum to have similar fermentable sugars to barley.
This is why if you are transitioning to a gluten free life, I highly recommend beers made with sorghum. Not only are gluten free beers made from sorghum safe for celiacs, they also taste similar to beers made with barley, such as Heineken.
Baking Tips – For better volume and texture mix tapioca flour with sorghum to baked goods. Also add slightly more oil and eggs to recipes with sorghum blends to improve moisture content and texture.
Note - Always check ingredient labels for packaged foods, even frequently purchased items; ingredients are subject to change.

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!
