Quick Hits

A few notes from around the World Wide Web:

A-B has released what they are calling the first nationally available Gluten free beer. They call it Redbridge and it is made of Sorghum, a safe grain for those with wheat allergies. Sorghum is often used in making beers in Africa, and was probably one of the grains originally used in the first beers thousands of years ago.

Barry Schlacter at the Ft. Worth Star Telegram, has a good article on brew pubs in Colorado.

Lastly a very stupid article in the San Antonio Newspaper that states the reason America is obese is because of Beer and TV. (of course it has nothing to do with Fast food or the abundance of high fructose corn syrup)

I am gluten intolerant, and I thought I had Celiac's disease, which is much more serious, and has cancer implications. While I had my celiac's scare, I had Bard's Tale Beer, which is gluten free, and actually rather good. Especially since there is no alternative. That being said, as soon as I found out I did not have full-blown Celiac's disease, I switched back to regular beer.

I think gluten-free stuff is going to be the next huge food craze out there, much like organics are right now.
