New Gluten-Free Beer: Tread Lightly Ale
At the beginning of the summer, I was contacted by a new gluten-free beer distributor based out of Colorado. They wanted to introduce their 100% certified New Planet Gluten-Free Beer. I love trying new things and was excited to have some gluten-free beer sent to me for sampling.

The founder of New Planet Beer, Pedro Gonzalez, was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003 and after becoming tired of the gluten-free beers already on the market, he decided to brew his own. New Planet Beer was founded in 2008 with a mission to help everyone celebrate life with a great tasting beer and to help do good things for the planet. In addition, New Planet Beer is striving to bring a variety of different gluten-free beers to its customers. Tread Lightly Ale was the first New Planet Beer in the market, 3R Raspberry was their second beer that came out this July and they’re currently in development of a Pale Ale, that is due out this fall.

Not only does New Planet Beer love making great tasting gluten-free beer, they also enjoy connecting with others who have gluten and wheat intolerances, or who support the gluten-free diet. They are proud to promote the gluten-free lifestyle and connect with gluten-free communities that are continuously advocating the education and health awareness of celiac disease.

I am not a big solo drinker or even much of a beer drinker, but in honor of the unofficial end-of-summer I cracked open this Tread Lightly Ale the other night. I was pleasantly surprised. It had a really light taste with no aftertaste, which I find is often the case with other gluten-free beers. After finishing the first bottle, I was wishing I had a second but I was only sent one bottle of the Tread Lightly Ale.

Unfortunately, the New Planet beers are currently only distributed in Colorado so unless I get on a plane I won't get to try this beer again any time soon. As of June, they were still working on national distribution. If you live in Colorado or are just passing through, look for the New Planet Tread Lightly Ale and give it a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Those Coloradians (or whatever they call themselves) have everything first! Udi's, Rudi's, Canyon Bakehouse and now this. Oh well, anything good usually gets wider distribution eventually. Thanks for the news about new beer ;)
