I love the name Bards Dragon Tail. I think my husband would try that for the name alone.
I wasn't much for beer pre-dx, but have tried New Grist just to see how it compared AND it was the only one I could find. It was ok. One of my favorite beers if I had to pick one was Newcastle or the chocolate stouts. Still have not heard about a gf beer much like those.
I think the chances of finding Redbridge in MN is slim as we have liquour stores and organic/health food stores do not have liquour licenses...at least the ones I shop at. Maybe if I make the drive to Whole Foods....
Good thing I like wine.
There is also a new GF beer that is coming out from Arkansas, but I cannot remember the name of that one.
I have tried Bards Dragon Tail and New Grist. I didn't like either one of them. They are both heavy and somewhat bitter. If you like dark beer, you might like them. They do make a great broth for stew, etc. Not sure about calories either. I haven't seen the Budweiser anywhere yet, but will definately try it when I find it.
There are 3 now. THe longest ones out there are Bards Beer and Dragons Tale. They are gold beers..The most recent is the Budweiser one called Redbridge. Its the cheapest 7.99/6 pack vs the others are about 10/6 pk. Redbridge like its name is red but its lighter then say Killans. Redbridge plans to be distributed all over and I can find it here in any grocery store. The other 2 I can find at Earth Fare or small natural food stores w/ liquor licenses. I just havent looked at calories..
Budweiser just came with their own version. Google gf beer and you can find names of them. Depending on where you live, they may be marketed only at health food stores. Our state, OK, won't even allow it in state. People here have to go out of state! I guess we could mail order -- but the expense ...

Well. That has been one of the hardest parts of going gluten free for me. I go to five or six folk music and dance festivals from May through September and the culture of these events involve a LOT of beer to fuel the singing and music making. I do not drink when I'm going to be dancing -- but the idea of spending hours singing or jamming without a beer is bizarre! So, I'm hoping to find some gluten free beer to invest in for next summer, with some limit on what I drink. I figure if I drink a six pack or two in a weekend and put in 6-8 hours of highly aerobic folk dancing, it will balance out.
So, pray tell - what are these gluten free beers? And are they any good? And are there any dark ones? I love me some porter... *sigh*
