Gluten and wheat free beer and lager - Nick Stafford's Hambleton Ales
We have just tried Nick Stafford's Hambleton Ales lager and beer - wheat and gluten free.
Tesco have started selling it in the 'Free From' section which is how I spotted it. I am not at all knowledgeable about what beer and lager should taste like, but TT says he is happy to drink these. He likes beer and lager, and we have lately been trying out the local artisan producers (he is drinking the beer, I watch his face). The only problem that he mentioned was that the bottles were too big (500ml).
Both the beer and lager are made from sorghum, hops, brewing sugars and Yorkshire water. The lager has East Kent Goldings and Continental Styrian hops, the beer Cascade, Liberty and Challenger hops.
