Tread Lightly Ale by New Planet Beer Co.- a new Gluten Free Beer!

I came across this article in the Denver Post about a new Gluten Free Beer coming out.  I don't believe it's in this area yet, but thought it was interesting and worth checking out!  I will keep you posted if they come to Long Island! I'm going to send them a request!

Here is the website for New Planet Beer Co.

Article from The Denver Post online:
"There's been a surge in awareness of celiac disease in the U.S. over the past decade or so, and the once-obscure affliction has spawned many a product for people who are unable to digest gluten. As many sufferers were forced to give up beer altogether, a few enterprising brewers set to work on developing beers that eliminated malted barley from the recipe. A proud entrant in this space is New Planet of Boulder with its drinkable blond refresher. TLA uses sorghum, corn extract and orange peel along with hops, yeast and water to achieve a gluten-free brew that tastes like beer. It's a bit light in appearance — pouring a clear light yellow, with a small fizzy head that disappears within seconds and lots of big bubbles. In fact, it looks for all the world like ginger ale. Its aroma is sweet, with notes of apple, and on the palate this beer unfolds light orange, corn and apple, balanced by a touch of hops. It's highly drinkable and with alcohol by volume of 5 percent is sessionable. Celiac sufferers should come back into the beer-drinking fold with this summer-drinking pils.
