View as Map

In a city full of great bars, finding one that carries gluten-free beer is tough. Most gluten-free beer is made from a combination of buckwheat, millet, sorghum, or rice instead of barley. Many bars are offering gluten-removed beers leaving gluten-free beer to fight its way into the bar scene.

What is the difference between gluten free and gluten-removed beer? Gluten-free beer is made from gluten-free grains — big duh, right? Gluten-removed beer (Brunehaut, Estrella Damm Daura, and Omission) is brewed with gluten (barley) and then undergoes a procedure to remove it.

After consulting a number of local beer drinkers to find their favorite watering holes, here are 14 bars offering gluten-free or gluten-removed beer. Also included are ciders, which are making a comeback and can be found on tap. Right now, gluten-free beer is offered only by the bottle, not on tap.

Know of another local bar that offers gluten-free or gluten-removed options? Do share in the comments.
