Redbridge gluten-free beer has been reformulated

by Kimberly Bouldin on June 21st, 2010


Redbridge gluten-free beer seemed to be a thing of the past earlier this year.  All of a sudden it disappeared from grocery stores shelves.  Tiffany Janes at Celiac-Disease.com reported that after speaking with a representative from Anheuser-Busch, she confirmed that the beer was being reformulated, not discontinued.

It seems the beer was too high in alcohol to be sold in every state.  The beer was reformulated to contain only 4% alcohol instead of 4.7%.  This now allows the beer to be sold in all 50 states. 

 

The reformulated version of Redbridge is just as good, if not better, than the previous version.   It is the perfect ending to a long, hot summer day.  Pizza and beer; burgers & an ice cold beer; nachos & beer - it doesn't get any better than that.  

Redbridge can be found in Columbus at Raisin Rack on Schrock Rd or at Whole Foods in Dublin or on West Lane.  Kroger and Walmart both carried Red Bridge at one point, but has not been on the shelves in the past few months.  Uno Chicago Grill in Dublin and Pickerington also serves Redbridge to go along side their gluten-free pizza.

    I really like it! It tastes as close as I have found to Bud Lite, what I drank before being diagnosed with celiac disease.
    Thanks Anheuser-Busch!

    I thought Redbridge tasted fine, but wondered why my skin broke out and it made me feel weird each time I tried it. Then I noticed that it contains corn syrup. I’m not sure how I missed that before buying it.

    A lot of gluten sensitive people are cross reactive or also completely allergic to corn, as well as other grains. Corn is one of the most cross reactive ones. I was surprised that they put this into the formula. I cannot drink it anymore.

    Redbridge by AB is brewed in Vermont. Currently, it is one of the best GF beers on the market, unless you’re daring enough to make your own GF homebrew. Grab a 6-pack, chill and enjoy. It’s good anytime of the year.
