Beer Gives Gluten The Heave Ho


20150225-IMG_4435The largest independent brewery in Scotland, BrewDog has created and launched its first completely gluten-free beer.  Vagabond Gluten Free Pale Ale proved that a lack of gluten in beer doesn’t reduce the flavour at all.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt commented:

BrewDog exists to make everyone as passionate about beer as we are – so we are always pushing the limits of brewing to expand the horizons of craft beer. Gluten free products have become synonymous with underwhelming flavour and experience, so we wanted to prove that a gluten-free beer didn’t need to lack the bold taste and texture of a craft beer. With Vagabond, there is finally a gluten-free craft beer that tastes like it should.”

You can even join in on social media by using the hashtag #VforVagabond.

James continued:

Avoiding gluten can often leave people feeling like their only choice is a listless beer with both gluten and flavour removed but now they can stick two fingers up to all that, literally. BrewDog bars can now act as a totem for those people looking to escape the constant rigmarole of checking labels and forward planning.”

Made with Amarillo hops and centennial, the beer is crisp and refreshing, packing a wonderful citrus punch.  The beer really doesn’t lose the flavour without containing gluten, which is something that can be extremely important to those who have to keep gluten from their diet.
