The first gluten-free beer to be brewed in Britain is launched this month by Hambleton Ales.
The Yorkshire brewer has developed GFB for gluten and wheat-intolerant drinkers, and promises that the 4.2% abv “full-bodied” beer with “pronounced fruit and hop character” doesn’t sacrifice any real ale taste.
GFB is bottled in 500ml bottles and is being launched in the off-trade, rsp: £2.79.
GFB carries the quality endorsement of the Society of Independent Brewers and is licensed to carry the logo of the Coeliac Society, which gives help and advice to people suffering from gluten intolerances.
