I have been venturing on a gluten-free diet for the past month, and if you’ve ever tried to cut out wheat you know it’s a daunting task. I had tried New Planet (Boulder, CO) last November at a beer bloggers conference, but didn’t really give it a second thought. But now, more often breweries have been accommodating the gluten-free population.
Tread Lightly Ale by New Planet is a gluten-free ale beer. Light in color and a bit sweet, its flavors are orange peel with a touch of hops. Because it is on the sweeter site I would drink this during the warm summer months. However, if you’ve read any of this blog, I’m not into sweet beers and love my hops. But because it’s a gluten-free options it’s really not bad and very drinkable, especially at 5% ABV.
Not only is New Planet producing gluten-free beers, but they also donate a portion of their profits each year to organizations like Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (this years organization).
