One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year came from my 22 year old son (he of Every Day Constant Blog.) A six pack of Redbridge Beer from Anheuser-Busch. It has been 7 long years since I've had a beer and, even though I wasn't much of a beer drinker before, sometimes only a beer will do. You know? It's hard to play beer pong or quarters with...well...anything other than beer.
Redbridge is made from sorghum; no malt or barley. Somehow, though, it tastes just like I remember beer tasting like. It was exactly what a beer should be: BEERY. No weirdo flavors. Just beer. Super drinkable. It is well-priced, but it may be a little hard to find. (Sonny D found his at The Foodery in Philly.) If you can't find it, try www.redbridgebeer.com. And tell Anheuser-Busch Thank You - for keeping us poor, thirsty GFers in mind!
Redbridge has inspired my DH, who is an amateur brewer, to try his hand at making a GF beer. I'll keep you updated on his success.
