I noticed today, whilst shopping at our non-swanky grocery store, that we had three new gluten-free beers available, and that they had moved the old stand-by, Redbridge to the refrigerated section. Do you think this is in demand to a fad, or is it a sign that Paleo-ish way of eating is moving more mainstream.
Yes, it is still made of grains, alcohol is a toxin, and not strictly "paleo," but it is a nice option for a BBQ, instead of the same old cider, NorCal margaritas and liquor drinks. If you drink gluten-free beer, what's your fave?
P.S. I DO NOT PERSONALLY THINK "GLUTEN-FREE" OR "PALEO" IS A FAD. I AM GLUTEN-INTOLERANT (and have been gluten-free since 2009). This is a question about whether it the proliferation of gluten-free beer is due to gluten-free being marketed as a trendy health-alternative, or if Paleo is becoming more mainstream, hence the rise of demand. Perhaps it is a growing acceptance and awareness of gluten-intolerance?
