Can’t process Gluten? Then a lot of beers will end up making you feel worse than better. There are a few gluten free beers out there, but the taste is hit or miss.
Dogfish Head feels your pain. If you recall Tweason’Ale brew day in animated GIFs; that is the beer is destined for shelves. Drinkers at the Dogfish brewpub have asked about a gluten free offering for years.
“It seems as if lots of folks who have gluten-tolerance issues are pining for an interesting beer,” says Dogfish founder and president Sam Calagione. “While there are a few well-made examples that mirror traditional beer styles, there aren’t any off-centered offerings.”
Presenting an off centered beer free of evil gluten: Tweason’ale.
…we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild, high-maltose sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey. We believe health-conscious beer drinkers and the millions of Americans who suffer from Celiac disease can cut back on gluten while relishing the distinction and drinkability of this very special brew.
Tweason’Ale will be the first brand new 4 pack offering in over 5 years by DFH. It will go into the brewery’s national distribution network.
Style: Fruit Beer (Gluten Free)
Availability: 12oz/4pks, Draft. Will make a GABF 2011 appearance
