Delicious Gluten Friendly Beer
Rizzla Rice Lager is an easy drinking Asian style lager made with a blend of barley, rice, hops, water and yeast. Brewed using rice properly, for flavour rather than filler, bittered with classic northern brewer hops to balance the rice sweetness. We also use an enzyme during fermentation which significantly reduces the gluten in this brew.
We have had two independent tests done, on two separate batches, by the good folks at White Labs and the Seibel Institute. These tests have shown that we’ve managed to reduce the gluten to under ten parts of gluten per million, which is below the recommended threshold (<20ppm) of gluten for those with gluten allergies and intolerances. Every batch is also tested twice in the same manner.
Please note, we are brewers, not doctors. Please consult a physician if you have any concerns before consuming.
You might ask what does gluten friendly mean? As we initially produce this beer with a gluten product (barley) and later reduce the gluten during fermentation, we aren’t able to call this beer gluten free, but gluten friendly or gluten reduced.
