Glutenberg is Coming Back to Town

Earlier this summer, we noticed a lack of Glutenberg beer at our local NSLC. We asked an NSLC employee what was going on, and we were told that it was being discontinued. In a panic, we tweeted at Garrison Brewing, who imports the beer from Quebec microbrewery Brasseurs Sans Gluten. It was all a mistake, they said. In fact, they were working on bringing another variety (in addition to the blonde) into Nova Scotia.

Fast-forward six weeks and the Glutenberg shortage got worse. In fact, it was taken off the NSLC’s website entirely, and as of today, it’s still missing. We tweeted at Garrison again and were told that it was some kind of trade dispute at the provincial level that was out of their hands. Since then, both Garrison and the NSLC have reassured us that Glutenberg will be back on shelves by the end of October.

Glutenberg is Here, and It’s Good!

Montreal-based gluten-free microbrewery Brasseurs Sans Gluten is famous for its Glutenberg ale, and it’s finally available in Nova Scotia! Halifax-based Garrison Brewing has taken on distribution of Glutenberg Blonde, which can now be found in NSLC stores across the province. (Tip: To see if Glutenberg is available in your local store, search for it, and click “Find it” on the product page.)

We were first to purchase a six-pack from the Sackville (Downsview) NSLC last night!

Glutenberg Blonde Ale

It was $16.99 – not bad for a gluten-free beer. I really liked the taste of it: crisp, light, refreshing, and no nasty rice flavour.

There’s also an interesting article in the Chronicle Herald about Glutenberg. You can read it here. (Fun fact: Garrison chose to distribute Glutenberg because president Brian Titus’s wife has Celiac disease.)

A gluten-free brewery is opening in Montreal, Quebec! Called Brasseurs Sans Gluten (literally, Brewers Without Gluten), they plan on being ready to ship early this summer. Beer will originally be available only in Quebec but hopefully they will expand shipping!

Although their Facebook page is in French, there is an English page on their site ( where you can sign up for news. We’ll keep you up to date as we hear more!
