Gluten-free beer (and food) tasting!

Last week I was invited to a GF beer tasting, which I was only slightly skeptical of. Skeptical because I’ve tried just about every gluten-free beer I’ve come across, and all of them have been……lackluster. Even the supposed ‘award winning’ beers have tasted mediocre, and cost a fortune! It’s one thing to claim to make a decent GF beer, but to actually make one that people WANT to drink has seemed impossible.

After trying four varieties from the folks at the up-and-coming Bent Brewing, I can say with confidence that the status quo is being challenged.  The beers we tasted ranged from a rich, coffee-like craft brew to an easy-to-drink session beer. There were perhaps twenty of us in attendance, and several folks I was standing with were of the non-GF variety. They said with total conviction that they would have ordered one of these beers if given a choice. That’s a pretty resounding success, if I do say so myself.  A great thanks to those that made the event possible, and we definitely look forward to seeing these great GF beers soon!

      Hey Gina, there was a Craigslist posting for a tasting hosted by the newly established Bent Brewing. Great beer! If I hear of anything else, I’ll let you know!
