Folks with gluten intolerances and Celiac have to deal with a lot of crap, not the least of which is explaining that they're not one of the many people who think that going "gluten-free" is a fad diet rather than a serious medical issue. One thing they no longer have to deal with: shitty beer.
In the past few years, tremendous strides have been made in crafting gluten-free beers that don't skimp on flavor. For beer lovers with gluten issues, that means all the great flavor of beer can now be had without a chaser of crippling illness. Drink up, and help us bolster our shopping lists in the comments section.
Editor's Note: Some of the beers on this list fall into the reduced-gluten category and are not 100% free of gluten trace. Still, the gluten content is immeasurable because it's so low, so most people should be good.
