Enjoying Green’s gluten and wheat free beers

There are so many gluten free beers to choose from these days but this month I have been mostly sampling Green’s gluten free beer range. This is one for all you coeliacs or wheat allergics out there.

Eating at Gourmet Burger Kitchen with multiple allergies…

We recently put Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) through a pretty stringent test of their allergen catering protocol. I wouldn’t normally ever turn up somewhere without having first phoned, exchanged emails and been through the menu to ascertain before hand what would be safe. But things happen in our busy lives and we are not always […]

Wheat or gluten free beer at the CAMRA beer festival?

I’m asking a question here because I’m not quite sure. I’m planning a visit to London with colleagues tomorrow and received this very helpful response from CAMRA about whether there would be any wheat and/or gluten free beers available.

Working, speaking and eating at the Allergy Show 2015

Allergic to wheat? List of wheat free lager and real ale

I’m really doing this for myself as a reference because I have a wheat allergy and a love of real ale – not always a good combination. I plan to contact the brewers to find out if their draft beer is made with the same recipe as their bottled beer. Could you safely assume that […]

The day after the beer festival with a wheat allergy

Well I braved the beer bellies and crowds of men and had a hoot at the Great British Beer Festival. I did indeed find ‘the only gluten free beer at the beer festival’ and enjoyed quite a lot of Stringers Plan B which is a very drinkable, light ale – perfect for a drinking session! […]
