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!
