New Belgium Brewing (Ft Collins, CO) is releasing two gluten reduced ales for the first time in January, 2016. The series is called Glutiny Ales.
Glütiny Golden Ale and Glütiny Pale Ale are both brewed using an enzyme to break down the proteins that trigger a reaction from gluten sensitive drinkers. Therefore, these beers are being referred to as “gluten removed” instead of gluten free. The beers fall within the FDA guidelines of less than 20 parts per million.
New Belgium Glütiny Golden Ale is brewed with Nugget, Goldings, and Cascade hops. 5.2% ABV
New Belgium Glütiny Pale Ale features Equinox hops, for flavors of guava and papaya. 6% ABV, 30 IBUs.
Both gluten reduced offerings will be available year-round in 12 ounce bottles/6 packs in January, 2016
