You know how it is when you’re walking down the street as a gluten-less person. You glance past all those lovely window displays of things you can’t eat, signs proclaiming the delicious food on offer that, should you eat it, would just poison you. It’s a depressing state of affairs, but, you’re an optimist, so you keep looking, even in the face of overwhelming odds. Then one day, the sun shines and it pays off.
It almost didn’t register, I’m so tuned to expect nothing gluten free, but then another sign popped up in front of me.
A beer shop that actually advertises it’s gluten free beer options! Amazing. The fact that they are very near to my apartment and this is the first time I’d heard of them was only slightly disturbing.
I ventured inside expecting to find the usual Lammsbrau and such. But look at what I found.
Not one, but two Mongozo gluten free beers. Plus at a fairly reasonable price!
I inquired if this was all they had and the nice helpful man behind the counter pointed me to these.
A Pale Ale! Something different than a Pilsner type beer. Happiness.
I went back again and within a week they’d already added a new gluten free beer from Norway.
Plus, if you look carefully you can find some rather good cider.
I have since spoken to the owner and they are looking to expand their gluten free range but are having a hard time sourcing gluten free beers. So if you know of any that they do not stock (and secretly wish they would, I’m looking at you Celia Dark) let them know!
In conclusion. Yes, this is THE best place to go and buy gluten free beer in the city and they’re only going to get better. Yes, some of the options may be pricey, but they’re also imported beers and you shouldn’t be complaining at getting to drink delicious gluten free beer anyway. Go now and go often and thank the lovely people there.
