Yes, there is gluten-free beer and it is pretty good!
I asked the manager at Food Lion on Skibo Road if they could carry Redbridge Beer. It's made by Anheuser Busch. Same folks that make Budweiser, Michelob, Becks, etc. I'm hoping it's not too hard to get it at Food Lion because that would be awesome!!!
Harris Teeter does carry it in a six-pack for about $8 to $9.
Other brands to look for (not in Fayetteville, just yet...) are New Grist and Bard's. Wholefoods in Raleigh carries it.
By the way, if you like beer with your pizza, you can get a gluten-free pizza with any gluten-free topping at Mellow Mushroom on McPherson Church Road ... with a cold Redbridge. It does take a bit longer for the pizza to be made so be prepared to wait a bit. Also, the crust is a little better than the average gluten-free frozen pizza. I wish for the day pizza makers could make a deep dish gluten-free crust. I'm not a big fan of cracker crust BUT it's Pizza!!! with Beer!!! In Fayetteville!!!
Let's hope this blog isn't all about my crazy ramblings. Do you have a favorite place to shop in Fayetteville (or even out of the area) for gluten-free goodies? Please share!
Until next time...
