I'm brewing tonight, and as I do, I thought I'd tell a little story.
A few weeks ago, my family and I participated in the 8th International Walk for Celiac Disease. I talked about this two years ago. Remember? If not, here's the link.
The main issue with Celiacs disease is those afflicted cannot tolerate gluten in their diet. Gluten is found in many grains including barley. That means no beer for those with Celiacs. That's not as bad as being allergic to hops because there is a solution: beer made using sorghum.
In 2007 I discovered Redbridge. The Anheuser-Busch gluten-free beer. OK, but not really that good. Very low hop flavor.
In 2009, I discovered Bards. Now this beer is a lot more interesting and flavorful. The most notable difference between this and the Redbridge is that the Bard's brewers don't mind using hops. The Hersbruker and Tettenang come shining through in the most delightful way. The result is a beer I would drink not because I had to, but because I want to.
Sadly, at the walk I only got a few small tastes. I will hopefully be able to find it around here. I'd like to try an entire 6
 the name is a bit misleading. We were not walking 'for' Celiacs disease. We are actually quite against it. We were walking to raise funds to research a cure.
