The demand for gluten-free products has beer scientists endeavoring to find formulas that mimic the taste of traditional beers made with barley, wheat or rye.
Few have achieved perfection. But Green’s Beers out of England comes awfully close.
Owner Derek Green suffers the autoimmune disorder called celiac disease and must avoid wheat and certain other grains. His collaboration with Dirk Naudts’ De Proef Brewery in Belgium has generated a full line of gluten-free beers, including Green’s Enterprise Gluten-Free Dry-Hopped Lager.
Brewed with American Pacific Coast hops, yeast, millet, sorghum, buckwheat and rice, the beer improves on the standard Euro-lager style with soft citrus and herbal flavor. Missing is the mineral and grassy character that defines so many European pale lagers.
Green’s Dry-Hopped Lager has an abundance of effervescence and finishes light, dry and refreshing. It’s 4 percent alcohol by volume, and the perfect choice to pair with gluten-free pizza. Green’s is available at Total Wine & More locations throughout greater Tampa Bay.
