Looking for a wide variety of gluten-free beers? The Andersons’ in Maumee is the place to go. They have a large shelf with many varieties of gluten-free beverages. The Andersons’ on Talmadge has a small selection, but the one in Maumee has a much wider selection.
Here are a few of the brands I have recently tried. . .
Shakparo – This is a very hoppy beer. It is much like an IPA. I do not really like IPAs, so this is not my favorite. A friend that is a fan of IPAs gave it a thumbs up.
Dogfish Head Tweason’ Ale – The strawberry and honey flavor indicated on the label make it sound like it is going to be overly fruity. It is not. There is a hint of the strawberry and honey, but not over powering. My husband would not lose his man card by drinking this one. I really like the flavor.
Angry Orchard Hard Cider Apple Ginger – Ok, this is not a beer, it is a cider. There is a big difference between beer and cider. The advantage of cider is that you can often find it in a bar, where you cannot find a gluten-free beer. I prefer the standard Angry Orchard to the standard Wood Chuck. This Angry Orchard has a bit more spice to it, closer to the 802 or Crisp of Wood Chuck. I like the spice in this one. While most days I prefer beer to cider, this is a nice crisp and refreshing drink.
Wishing you great food and happy tummies,
The Tweason’ Ale has a nice light flavor to it without being fruity. It has become one of my favorite gluten free beers.
I love going to The Anderson’s in Maumee they have an amazing selection of gluten free beers, I never feel limited. The hardest part is making up my mind.
The Tweason’ Ale was ok when I tasted it.
I don’t always drink gluten-free beer, but when I do, I prefer Redbridge.
Thank you for clearing this up! I am recently gluten-free and am still experimenting with what I can and cannot eat… One of my biggest worries was where am I going to find beer?!? I’m thankful that Toledo has some options for us! Also, thank you so much for recommending Organic Bliss Cafe…. I tried it for the first time today and it is fabulous. The service was more I could have ever asked for!
