gluten-free beer

any pubs around that have gluten-free beer? (and a decent beer selection for our pro-gluten friends?)

  1. Beerbistro would probably be what you're after. They have the gluten-free La Messagere (sp?) but also a great selection of regular beer both on tap and in bottles. The beer tasting is nice, 3 tastings for $6, I think?

    1. C'est What has one, La Messagere. Great selection of other beers too (check out the menu:

        1. you can also find la messagere at bar volo
          better food at c'est what or beer bistro though
          Also more gluten-free friendly than volo (sandwichs, saucisson without a definitive ingredient list, and pizza do not make a gluten-free friendly menu!)

          1. La Messagere is also available at Mill Street Brewpub (the only non-Mill St beer that they carry), and the Mill Street beers for the pro-gluten folks are quite good. The food there is pretty dire, though.

            Also worth noting that while La Messagere is the only gluten-free beer currently available in Ontario, there will soon be another one: New Grist from Lakefront Brewing in Milwaukee will be available soon at the LCBO in six-packs. It's reportedly better than La Messagere, and will be a couple of bucks cheaper as well.

              I was hoping that the KGBO would bring New Grist up here. I find La Messengere far too expensive.
