SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This one goes out to all my homies who can’t eat regular bagels. While the idea of a gluten-free diet might seem like a silly fad to some, the stuff of eager health nuts and posh Hollywood stars, the unfortunate reality is that many individuals’ bodies can’t tolerate the amount of gluten in regular, delicious processed starches, which sucks. Luckily, this beer doesn’t. 

The taste: Like beer. 

It’s a magnificent achievement. The Widmer Brewing Brothers brewing company of Portland, Oregon, has crafted a gluten-free option that doesn’t taste like decaying moss or sour bananas. It’s actually made with barley, the usual uh-oh siren for gluten content, but the brewery’s magic chemistry somehow filters it down to a tolerable level. It has soft golden color, and it’s tasty and refreshing, so even if you’re not gluten  intolerant, it’s a pretty delicious option.
