Gluten-free Beer Tweasonale in Bellingham!

A while ago I posted that Dogfish Head was coming out with a gluten-free beer.  I had been anxiously awaiting its arrival in Bellingham.  Nobody was carrying it and weren’t sure if they were going to get it.  I even told a local grocery store that I would buy a case if they could get it.  No luck.  But then a new magical beer store opened, Elizabeth Station!  Located at 1400 Holly St. in beautiful Bellingham.  Not only were they carrying Tweasonale but many other GF beers and ciders.  It is a beautiful store that has a lot to offer.  Do yourself a favor and go check it out.

Now for the Tweasonale.  It is a a gluten-free sorghum-based ale brewed with strawberries and buckwheat honey.  It is a light amber color and smells of strawberries.  It is lighter in body and you can definitely taste the strawberries and honey but neither is over baring.  It is a well rounded craft ale and my hat is off to Dogfish for venturing into the GF market.  I think this is going to be a kick ass summer beer when all the fresh berries come into season in Whatcom county and we are making fresh salads while BBQing salmon.  This is going to be a seasonal ale so you may want to buy a little extra and store it for the later spring and summer.  Oh, another nice thing 6% alcohol.  I find most GF beers are closer to 4%.  So grill some fish and make a salad with some strawberries and crack open a Tweasonale and enjoy a craft beer from one of the best breweries around!

Dogfish Head is coming out with a Gluten-free beer! Tweason’ale

That is right!  One of America’s top breweries is coming out with a Gluten-free beer this week!  I am super excited to try a new GF beer, especially from Dogfish Head.  Here is the description taken straight from Dogfish’s website “For our first new 12-ounce 4-packs in nearly half a decade, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey.”  That sounds good!  It is going to come in four packs and is going to be seasonal.  As soon as I find some I will post my reviews and where you can find it in Whatcom County.
