* Though standards vary from country to country, according to the FDA, "In order to use the term 'gluten free' on its label a food must meet all the requirements of the definition, including that the food must contain less than 20 ppm (parts per million) gluten." It is said that products with a gluten content below 20 ppm are suitable for people with celiac disease.

DISCLAIMER: We are testing beers out of our own curiosity at home and sharing the test results with others. We are not medical doctors and our results should not be interpreted as medical advice. We do NOT claim that ANY of these beers are safe to consume if you have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant.


  1. You're doing god's work my friend! Thank you for posting this list and all your test results!

  2. Many thanks. This is a great blog.

  3. Hello- great blog! I am travelling to Thailand in September. Is it possible for you to test Singha and Chang? I can't find anything online! X

    1. Yes please on Thailand!

    2. And cambodia too please a local beer is angkor beer. ;-)

  4. Had my first 'real beer' in years thanks to you guys - a Corona. It was pure pleasure. Next is Duvel - woohoo! Thanks guys.

  5. I can't wait to try my first Corona again in years. Your testing makes me confident I'll be ok. Thank you so much. Seriously!!!

  6. I still cough, but your choices are better than random.

  7. I now actually believe that for me, who has no celiac disease, just sensitivity… I can't drink any of these without symptoms… It was a nice pipe dream though

  8. Are you still doing this? It is fantastic! Any new ratings? Thx.
