I've finally found an awesome GF beer!

I would have called my husband and I connoisseurs of good beer, until I couldn't drink it anymore. The night we got engaged he even planned ahead to surprise me with my friends and growlers of local Yazoo Pale Ale and Dos Perros. Sadly, when I went GF I knew that pale ale was never going to be an option again. I tried Redbridge and New Grist. Redbridge didn't taste right to me and New Grist was better... but still didn't make me feel like I'm drinking a real beer instead of pure liquid sorghum.
Last night we had plans with some friends to watch Lost and eat Gumbo for Fat Tuesday. Since beer is usually a staple at our get togethers I went to Whole Foods and thought - maybe they'll have a beer I haven't tried yet! And they did :-)
Bard's has upped the bar on the taste of Gluten Free beers! It's definitely a darker variety but tastes great. The aftertaste is still a little sorghum-ish (it is, afterall, a sorghum beer) but it's much better than Redbridge or New Grist. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

    Thanks for trying Bard's and we are glad you enjoyed the beer.

    We just entered central Tennessee and are looking for recommendations for gluten-free friendly restaurants that Bard's would be a great fit. Forward any recomendations to or
