Default Not homemade, but the best GF beer I've ever had

I had a Green's Dubbel Dark Ale last night, and it is by far the best gluten free beer I have ever had. There's really nothing you can do to replace the mouthfeel so it was a tad thin and it was a little sweet, but great dark rich flavors.

I like Harvester's new Dubbel a bit more than Green's. But the Green's is quite nice.

If you think the dubbel is good, try the tripel. They are very good beers. I wish I could afford to buy them a sixer at a time. $5 a beer is a little steep, even for a pint. They are worth it.

The tripel is exactly what a tripel should be, and is one of the few GF beers that I can honestly say would please a non-GF drinker that likes Belgian tripels...but I prefer dubbels! Probably just because I like dark beers. But you're right, they are definitely too pricey for daily quaffing.

I love all three of their beers available in Texas. My non gf friends love them too, in fact one if my buds actually prefers greens over other beers

I just had one of these this past Saturday night. It was a very good beer. I'd drink it again. I tried two other brews they offer and found them almost undrinkable though.

This is by far my favorite OTC GF brew also, but it is a rare treat...at that price, I'm just going to go ahead and drink margaritas. But then, that's why I home brew.

If you can find it Omission is a GF beer made with barley. Somehow they have a way to remove the gluten, so it tastes like 'real' beer. A girl I work with is GF and she told me about it, so I know it's not just me!
PS My chiropractor raves about Green's. I am too cheap - 6 bucks apiece is too rich for my blood.
