We have sourced some fantastic certified Gluten Free Beer which has been requested by a few people and now it's available to order.
The initial selection includes the following from the fantastic Brass Castle Brewery:
4 x Bad Kitty (330ml can, 5.5%) - Robust fulsome dark porter, enhanced with vanilla.
A 5.5% chewy chocolate-vanilla dream of a porter. Bad Kitty earned its name from the antics of the two original brewhouse cats, who delight in mischievously supervising proceedings.
4 x Sunshine IPA (330ml can, 5.7%) - India Pale Ale made in the traditional Yorkshire way, only with a pile of new world hops for fruity citrus bite.
A 5.7% full-bodied IPA. We use our traditional top-cropping house yeast alongside a welter of hops from North America and Australia, to create a North Yorkshire version of the US West Coast style.
4 x Yorkshire Lavender (440ml can, 4%) - Oatmeal Pale Ale with lavender
Oatmeal Pale Ale brewed in collaboration with Yorkshire Lavender, showcasing Lavandula Angustifolia. Gluten-free.
To achieve certified gluten-free status Brass Castle Brewery use a Murphy & Son enzyme product called 'Brewers Clarex' - added in a tiny amount during fermentation. Marvellously, it contains an enzyme isolated from a self-cloned strain of the mould Aspergillus niger. Some breweries use it to reduce protein haze; but a lovely side-effect is a reduction in dissolved gluten. Their certified gluten-free beers are tested through Brewlab, Sunderland, using the competitive ELISA testing protocol.
