Default Anyone familiar with Beerlao?

Yes, one of those posts. On a travel show last night in Laos, they mentioned a rice whiskey lao-lao. So I looked into the Lao-lao and came across Beerlao which is apparently the national beer of laos. From what I can tell it is made from Jasmine rice and millet, which would make it gluten free. Has anyone had it? Is anyone familiar with whether or not it is gluten free?

Ha. This is pretty interesting. Never heard of it. I would try it though. I have had African style millet beer before. It was good but, not what you would expect. It tasted like a third world beer brewed in Wisconsin. Mostly because it is. https://www.sprecherbrewery.com/beer.php?cat=7

Would like to see if anyone has any info on this beerlao.

They're owned by carlsberg. It's barley based. See here http://www.carlsberggroup.com/brands...x#.UtC4H3i9LCQ.

Default Beerlao is good

Hi all, I just joined and am a recently returned homebrewer.

I was living in Thailand for four years and went to Laos many times and I can honestly say that Beerlao is my favourite beer in the world! I have travelled to over 40 countries and drunk many, many beers. My current top three are all Asian - Beerlao, Saigon Red (Vietnam) and Tsingtao (China). Interestingly all these breweries are part owned by Carlsberg
