The good news: I have finally found a gluten-free beer that I actually like. It’s made by a dedicated gluten-free beer company (Green’s) and is called Dubbel Dark Ale. It tastes like barley-based beers – not like a mouthful of dead rice.
The bad news: It isn’t available in Canada (as far as I could tell).
However, I contacted the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation to ask about its availability. They said:
“I will forward your product suggestion to our Beer Category Manager. He’s interested in expanding our gluten-free selection so I’m sure this information will come in handy.”
As well, the NSLC allows you to place a special order (minimum one case, meaning 12 bottles) and they will source it for you. I have ordered some and am waiting on the cost details. I will keep you all up to date!
