The warm weather, longer days, and sunshine make summer the perfect time for outdoor dinner parties and BBQs with friends and family. While nowadays it’s a lot more common see gluten-free food options served at parties, it’s not as common to find a gluten-free beer chilling in the beer cooler.

The good news is that just because you’re gluten intolerant or have celiac disease, doesn’t mean you have to give up beer forever. In fact, there are plenty of gluten-free beer options that are delicious and taste just like traditional crafted beer.
