Those looking to reduce their gluten consumption usually have to sacrifice: no doughnuts, no pasta, no crusty bread bowls for soup. And while they’ll find gluten-free and gluten-reduced beers on the market now, most require compromised flavor expectations. Not so with Wicked Weed’s new year-round double IPA, brewed with an enzyme that knocks its gluten content under 20 ppm. It’s not only as flavorful as any full-gluten double IPA, it’s more dynamic than most. Fresh, juicy grapefruit and garlic hop aromas braid around each other in the nose; the sip introduces a green prism of hop flavor including onion grass, light pine and peppermint, while pleasant bitterness crests from swallow to soft swallow. Even if you’re not aiming to curb your gluten intake this year, this
is a beer worthy of fridge space.

MSRP: $5.50
Glassware: Pint
Pair it with: Robust GF dishes like rich, creamy broccoli-cheddar soup or a spicy plate of hot wings.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
