What is Gluten-Free Beer?

Gluten Free Beer Ireland

Discover Gluten-Free Craft Beer from Ireland on TheCru.ie

Welcome to TheCru.ie’s dedicated section for gluten-free craft beer, where we celebrate the rich diversity of gluten-free beers crafted in Ireland and around the world. Our curated selection combines traditional brewing techniques with innovative approaches to cater to every palate, ensuring that those with gluten intolerance or coeliac disease can enjoy great beer without compromise.

What is Gluten-Free Beer?

Gluten-free beer is crafted to exclude gluten, a group of proteins found in certain grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. It’s an excellent option for individuals who are gluten intolerant or have conditions like coeliac disease. These beers are typically made using alternative grains like millet, rice, sorghum, buckwheat, and corn instead of traditional barley or wheat. Despite the different ingredients, gluten-free beers offer a wide range of flavours and styles, with the taste difference between traditional and gluten-free beers becoming increasingly indistinguishable as brewing techniques evolve.

Gluten-Free Beer in Ireland

In Ireland, gluten-free products, including beers, are regulated under strict guidelines set by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI). For a beer to be labelled as 'gluten-free', it must contain no more than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten. This stringent standard ensures safety and quality, aligning with international food standards recognised globally by health organisations.

Some beers crafted through traditional methods are processed to remove gluten. These can be labelled as 'de-glutenised' or 'gluten-removed' if they contain less than 20 ppm of gluten. They offer a safe option for many with gluten intolerance, although they may not fit the strict 'gluten-free' label.

Why is Gluten Intolerance Common in Ireland?

Gluten intolerance and coeliac disease are notably prevalent in Ireland, likely due to genetic factors. With an estimated 1 in 100 people affected, comparable to global averages, there’s a significant demand for gluten-free products, including craft beer.
