One of our missions in starting GlutenFreeGluttons is to encourage the spread of gluten-free awareness outside the home. This includes the city’s countless bars, salons, taverns and drinkingholes. It is a simple pleasure when we discover a neighborhood bar serving gluten-free beer. Wine and spirits have their time and place but let’s face it, sometimes you just want an ice cold beer. For example, it isn’t practical nor healthy to cheer your team on in the World Cup with a martini at 11:30 AM… (we don’t know this from experience). While we work on publicizing and increasing the number of establishments selling gluten-free beer, we also want to make sure you know the truth behind alcohol and gluten.
Before you enjoy your next glass of wine, gluten-free beer or cocktail, educate yourself with the facts. Chiara Shannon, the Head Sommelier at K&L Wine Merchants, breaks it down for us. Please read her piece on Gluten Free Drinking.
