What is your Favorite GF brew?
 
Just wondering what the group likes for their refreshments.

My wife mainly settles on Wood-chuck for now, but the Hard Lemonade I made was a hit and the No Pils Pils is conditioning so the jury is out on it yet.

We tried Green's Triple Blonde Ale (very strong ABV flavor) and the Amber (much better tasting).

Why she wants me to make better brews for her.

Looking at doing a blonde and a nut brown ale also a mock-wheat beer with fruit.

I did an orange hefe for my wife. It smells delicious so far. I am planning an amber or a desert stout for my next gf brew. Until the hefe ready mid June she sticks to sangria. I promised I'd produce a few gf brews for everyone I did for myself. Though gfs are a little more expensive, it's worth it to see her excited for a beer. Long winded, yeah I know, blame it on my stout.

Commercial beer:
Billabong Brewing's Gluten Free Pale Ale. Closest thing to a Little Creatues Pale Ale I've found.

Home made:

This Orange and Coriander Hefe. It had great complexity and really delivered. Plus it packed a huge punch.

I believe the problem with Greens was both were 8.5% ABV, the amber had enough flavors to make it taste good, but the triple was so lite that the ABV was strong taste

I recommend DKershner's Triple

Not too strong alcohol wise (5-6%) and easy drinking.

my chestnut brown and chestnut stout were awesome. even got good comments from no-GF homebrewers

Jolly Pumpkin's Golden Manatee Bellipago -Belgian-style IPA, brewed with chestnuts, tapioca, sorghum, agave nectar & dry hopped.
Still surpised they haven't bottled this yet.

Beyond that, choosing the things I make myself:
Beerwise, probably the GF double chocolate stout.
Nonbeerwise-alcoholic wine, mead & cider. (Haven't made sake yet).
Nonalcoholic, Kefir then soda.
