Three beers launch gluten-free range
A new range of gluten-free beers and lagers, brewed using alternative brewing malts and grains, is now available in the North East. Autumn Brewing Co has its three beers brewed at Castle Eden Brewery using only naturally gluten-free grains – such as quinoa, rice and millet – and brewing malts.
The ALT BREW range of beers (alternative brewing) has been launched with No1 Bavarian-style Pilsner, No2 English Pale Ale, and No3 Dark Roast Stout, specifically for drinkers who suffer from coeliac disease, but also for those who simply fancy an alternative to mainstream barley-based beers.
Peter Briggs, owner of Autumn Brewing Co, said: “After two years of research, training and many small-scale trial brews using different combinations of naturally gluten-free grains, we are proud to have created our first range of great tasting gluten-free beers.
“Feedback we’ve had so far has been great. For those who follow a gluten-free diet, out of necessity or choice, finding great tasting gluten-free beers brewed from naturally gluten-free ingredients is a real joy.”
The ALT BREW range is available from Coppers, Gosforth, Newcastle.
