Redbridge Beer in Utah

A lot of Celiac sufferers have been asking "what the Hell Happened to Red Bridge Beer"?

I don't know why it's gone from store shelves, but I've been reassured by General Distributing that it will return. Hopefully within the next 60 days.

For those of you that don't know, people who have celiac (pronounced: see-lee-ak) disease have a disorder that make their bodies react to gluten.

When they eat gluten, an immune system reaction to the protein gradually damages the villi in the small intestine. When the villi are damaged, the body is unable to absorb the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients it needs to stay healthy.

Red Bridge is gluten free and is one of the few option available in Utah. Greens out of the U.K. makes eight gluten free styles. Three of which are available locally. Discovery Amber Ale, Endeavor Dubble & Quest Triple. The Green's are only available at the Bayou(as far as I know). And finally there's Bard's Tale Dragon Gold Beer. Bard's Tale is only at state liquor stores. Hang in there.

Cheers!

I didn't pay a lot of attention, but at the Foothill Blvd liquor store I thought I saw two or three varieties of gluten-free beer.

I think they may have aquired some of the Greens that the Bayou special orders.
