MattS wrote: I did some searching, and all I could find out is that there is a similarly named mixpack out in SK that is 4 IPA, 4 Honkers and 4 Endless IPA. As those are all here anyway (and brewed in Ontario), I'd guess that's what ours is too.

Makes sense to me.

EDIT: just grabbed some cans of the Endless and you're right - the mixed pack is 4 bottles each of the IPA, Honkers, and Endless.

GLUTENBERG BLONDE
LCBO 437665 | 473 mL can

Price: $ 2.75


Happened to see this today. I don't think it has been mentioned....probably not a lot of widespread interest. I think I've tried gluten-free beers only a couple times in the past. Didn't really care for them....but I suppose if I had an intolerance to gluten, I might give them a real try. Ingredient list in this includes millet, corn, and demerara sugar.

By the way BeerBistro has a gluten-reduced Stone beer - the Delicious IPA! They brew a real beer and remove the gluten acterwardsm you basically can't tell.

I still recommend the Primanti sandwich, great as ever.

Thanks for the heads up. What was your verdict on the Delicious IPA?

I had it bottle a while back, it was not undelicious. Closer to 'meh, okay' than 'delicious' on the spectrum of deliciousness.

yeah, I had a bottle of the delicious in NYC last year from a bodega and I found it forgettable. I had no idea it was it was gluten reduced and don't remember seeing any mention of it on the packaging (?!).
oh, and, I should add - the fact that I bought beer from a corner store that one time propelled me into a weeks long spiral of violence and general ne'er do wellness. thank god Ontario has saved us from such a thing.

I remember trying some gluten free beers from Snowman brewing some time ago....couldn't drink them. So I wasn't surprised when I saw on the OBN brewery listing that they had dissolved.....but now I see their twitter is alive again, so maybe gluten-free beer isn't as dead as I thought.

I am curious to try the Stone Delicious IPA now to see if I enjoy it more than other non/low gluten beers I've had.

Have a relative who is intolerant - some of the Glutenberg stuff isn't too bad.

Huh. The comments here don't seem to align with the RB reviews, which are very high. Also, from what I gather the Delicious isn't a "gluten-free" beer per se but rather a regular IPA that happens to be low gluten/gluten reduced. To my mind Stone releasing a new-ish IPA made with a rarely-used hop in Ontario's highly protected beer market is big news, but these comments don't exactly make me want to seek it out.

I would take the reviews on here with a grain of salt.

I really enjoyed the stone delicious ipa. Tasted like a good west coast style ipa to me, would never know it was gluten reduced. I had a bottle not the draft version.

I'd take the reviews here over RB. IMO, BA is a bit more accurate and more selective with high grades than RB.

I'm not completely knocking Delicious IPA, but if you're a hop lover, you find you paid the price of a Ruination and ended up with a Finestkind quality of beer. It's a setup for a meh rating.
